Howling At The Moon Scene

Used a black styrofoam pumpkin (was formerly one that had Pirate Ship Black Pearl carved on front and over time the carved piece broke off/caved in) for this scene inside of a styrofoam pumpkin. Hubby had seen a wolf scene on Internet and we decided to create one of our own. Hubby wrapped some wire in a circle and wrapped the mini battery operated lights around the wire.

Supplies List 

adhesive: glue dots - to hold the Wolf on rock   glue - to hold twigs in place
machine:  Tim Holtz Vagabound
misc - round piece of styrofoam for base, black spray paint, moss
   wire, mini battery operated lights, batteries
   velcro - attached to battery light pack to attach to back of pumpkin, 
   Wolf (plastic - bought at Michaels with 50% off coupon)
punch: star 
recycle: cardboard - multiple cuts for Moon to make it sturdy & more dimensional
   rock & twigs from yard, plastic pan - to hold the round styrofoam piece in place
Tim Holtz:  die - Moon - cut multiple times  
   Distress Ink - squeezed lemonade - used on Moon especially the cardboard for side
      color coverage
