Halloween Dough Bowl

The fall dough bowl that I created was quickly transformed into a Halloween dough bowl with just a few changes......

I made a bed in the flowers of my fall bowl to lay my skeleton in and then the fun part began.    Did I want a Lady or a Gentleman skeleton......decisions....decisions.
I dressed my Gentleman skeleton in a fabulous black top hat......

He looks so handsome.....

Then it was time for my lady skeleton to have  her audition for the spot in the Halloween dough bowl

She has on a lovely pink hat and looks adoreable..... 

Before we take a vote,    I want to share a few of the changes I made in the fall bowl to prepare it for my Halloween decor.

I didn't want my skeleton to be laying down,   so I used 3 black velvet pumpkins to make a pillow of sorts

I made a bunch of these black velvet pillows years ago when I had a booth at one of the local antique malls.    I still have quite a few yards of velvet fabric left over that I don't know what to do with it.    Let me know if you have any idea's 

The only other thing I added to the existing fall bowl was a metal black bird....

So,  what do you guys think......the plain skeleton.....

The Gentleman........

Or the Lady.....what's your vote
