31 Days of Halloween - #16 - Retro Halloween

Smeared & Smudged
31 Days of Halloween
Day #16
Today I thought I'd go retro! 
I'm probably going to show my age here but
I thought these little goodies are the perfect fit....
Halloween Pipe Cleaner Characters!
I knew when I got this set of stamps from Artistic Outpost's Halloween Treats that they would be perfect to make these little cuties but I never actually got around to making them.  Well I figured no better time than the present.
Each character was stamped on white cardstock then colored with spectrum noir markers and have stickles glitter glue and Sakura's black raised gel pen work.  All of the little bodies are pipe cleaners...nothing more!
These are lots of fun to make and oh so easy! 
(Not to mention cheaper than spending $3.00-5.00 a piece on them!!!)
Yes, I'm cheap ;)
Anyway, we're at the half way point....
 I hope you're having fun with this month full of Halloween...


  1. OMG! I bought thick and thin pipe cleaners to do the exact same thing (and I haven't gotten around to it either. LOL) Now I'm TOTALLY inspired. You'rs came out sooo cute! Yeah, I guess we be old 'cause I so totally remember these (and even have some Christmas ones from my childhood.) xxD
