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.
With the white on top make angled cuts through the clay. You are trying to make triangular shaped pieces with the white being at the small tip and the yellow at the wider bottom. 3. Now to give them a more finished look smooth and round the edges. Now the candy corn is finished. Before you bake them decide if you are going to leave them as plain candy corn or if you would like to turn them into buttons earrings or maybe a necklace pendant. 4. To make buttons just poke two holes in the middle of the orange clay. Now the buttons are ready to bake. To make earrings you will need eye pins and earring hooks. Poke the eye pins straight down from the top of the candy corn. Then press the clay around the pin so it will hold. Now the earrings are ready to bake. To finish your earrings attach the earring hooks.
Make a number of such luminaries and line your walkway with them for the trick or treat night. Another arts and craft idea for Halloween is to drape your home with fun ghost or pumpkin garlands. These garlands are really easy to make. You require some white construction paper if you are making ghosts or orange construction paper if you are making pumpkins. Draw your ghost or pumpkin on the paper using a pencil or pen. Ensure that while drawing the figures you leave a tab on the top to fold while stringing the garland. Draw funny or scary faces on the figure using a black marker and then cut out the figures. To make your garland really long cut out many such figures. Place the string on the fold of the tab. Use staples glue or tape to secure the figures.
Skeletons Arms The skeleton arms have string or wool running through them. With a length of string doubled in half thread the loop through 6 of the discarded peg springs and then thread the rest of the string through the loop and pull tight to that the springs are firmly connected to the end of the string. This is the skeleton s hand. Stick two peg halves back to back with the string sandwiched between. The tapered end of the pegs should point to the hand. This is the forearm. In a similar fashion glue two more peg halves so that the rounded end meets the rounded ends of the forearm. This is the skeleton s upper arm. Finally make the skeletons shoulder with two more pegs the rounded ends meeting the tapered ends of the upper arm. Cut the remaining string at the tapered ends of the skeleton s shoulder. Make two arms in this way. Use some pegs as clamps to hold the pegs until the glue has started to fix the pegs. Leave to one side to dry.
