Shrunken Apple Head Halloween Puppets

The apples I left to rot for a month shrunk considerably and during the last week I have made them into character puppets with hair and clothes:

The one on the left with his beady eyes looks more worried than scary so my husband and I made this little animation today:


"Aaaaaah! I can see children in scary Halloween Costumes!"

"Hide!"
"Have they gone yet?"

The apples were on sticks which were decorated with black material for clothes and buttons were stuck on with a glue gun down the front. I also added felt hands.

Matted string was also glued on for hair and beads for the eyes.   They were made into puppets that hide in their paper cups by pushing a hole into a paper cup with the stick.

Booo!

I was given the idea (thanks Marc) to put a torch in the pot so they are going to look extra scary come night time.

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
