Trick r Treat is an awesome Halloween movie and I wanted to make a Sam doll for my Halloween haunt. Starting with just an idea, here's what I came up with.

Step 1: Materials

Sam is made from:

PVC Pipe
Styrofoam Ball
Black Buttons
Hemp Twine
Baling Wire
Thrift Store Toddler Onesie

I had to dye the Onesie Orange because there aren't a lot of orange Onesies out there.

I made him!!!!! Thanks!!!!
That's great! Glad you found the tutorial helpful!
This is great! I don't think I have seen a successful Sam yet! This is one of those movies me and my family watch each year around Halloween!
Thanks! What's best about this guy is he's just a little taller than a toddler and when he's out he constantly scares the bejeezus out of my wife! She put him into a closet to get him out of sight, then opened the closet and screamed. :)
That is so great. I remember the little faceless toddler trick or treater decorations used to be popular in the 90's and they would always scare the living heck out of me. If I had the means I would make me one of these in a heartbeat, I've been going slightly mad with the DIY decorations this year.
I'm mad with it all the time! As we speak I have 4, count them, 4 projects in the works! In October, as well as writing for my own blog, I'll be doing a weekly feature for another one. The theme is lazy or found Halloween decorations you can make with stuff that's just lying about the house. I've been collecting tin cans and toilet paper rolls... I have no idea what I'm going to make yet but it should be fun. :D
