Vintage Halloween Peg People

Inspiration for the Halloween Peg People came from a vintage image over at Faerie Dust Dreams. Directions Below

Supplies

Wood Person Peg - I got this at Michaels for about two dollars.
Acrylic Paint

Gloss Varnish








For "pumpkin face" paint the body of the peg black and the entire head orange. Let dry. Paint on the details. Painting in layers works best. When the paint is dry brush two layers of varnish on the peg. Done.

For the cat, paint the whole peg black. Then follow the same steps as the "pumpkin face".

For some reason I had this song (click here) in my head when making these. Anyone else remember this song?
