Happy Halloween Junky
Peggy the peg Art Skeleton is made from sprung clothes pegs and a wooden spoon. Peggy s arms and legs all move at their joints because the peg limbs are joined on the inside with wool to make the peg art moveable. Peggy makes a great Halloween toy or a Halloween decoration to make your house look spookier on Halloween. To make Peggy the Peg Art Skeleton you will need... Wooden Sprung Pegs (dismantled and all the springs discarded except for 6. You may wish to use some pegs as clamps whilst the glue dries.) Wood Glue Wool or String Paint Skeletons Ribs The skeleton ribs are two peg halves joined together at the tapered ends and overlapping one another about the same distance as the spoon handle is wide. Make and sick 6 ribs to the wooden spoon handle. The bottom set of ribs should not stick out as far as the ribs above so make the overlap bigger on this rib. Make sure you leave the skeleton a neck and leave some of the bottom of the spoon handle available for the pelvis bone.
Cover the pelvis area in glue and stick the length of string from the leg to the pelvis so that the leg will hang from the middle of the pelvis bone. Then stick three peg halves on top of the pelvis. Tapered ends to meet the spoon handle and with the central peg sticking out a little further than the other pegs to give a more rounded look to the pelvis bone. Arts and crafts have always been popular activities with kids and when you take into consideration how popular Halloween is with kids. (well the cool kids anyway!)

Paint a scary face of the ghost on the balloon and tie a string to the knot. Hang up these creepy balloons to trees in the yard. You may also put a few bells to the end of the strips so that they make a sound with the movement of the wind. Enjoy the haunting chimes of the ghosts moving around in your yard!

Cut out several pumpkin faces and tape these to the windowpane. You can light up the window by just placing a table lamp on the inside. This will throw up spooky shadows to greet your visitors. Decorative candles are another easy Halloween art décor.
