If you missed our suggestion for using soft sculptures, view our October Quick Tip here. And then add Clarice to a mantel or bookshelf where she will charm any visitor.


You may recognize this Spooky Snow Globe from years past, and while you will have to provide your own music, the warm lights inside the globe enhance the seasonal flair of this home accent.

Like the garden stakes above, the final two items are made in the USA. The Trick or Treat Halloween Sign is surrounded by a handcrafted wood frame, and coordinates with two other signs in our online catalog. The Happy Halloween Wood Clock is entirely handcrafted, from the pumpkins and witch to the bats standing in as numbers.

“Batty” Collectible Sculptures from Folk Artist & Designer Lori Mitchell

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Each season, Sturbridge Yankee Workshop adds more collectible figurines from folk artist and designer Lori C. Mitchell to our wide assortment of holiday decoratives. We know that our customers enjoy seeing what she will come up with next and look forward to growing their own personal collection. Whether it’s bunnies in the spring or festive patriotic friends in the summer, Lori’s designs are whimsical, and are completed with the utmost attention to detail and color. Fall however, is an opportunity to really have some fun with silly costumes for Halloween.

Pictured here to the left is our new Bat Boy Ben Halloween Sculpture. This little trick-or-treater is perhaps squeezing into last year’s costume, as noted by his exposed belly and shorts that seem just a little to short. Nevertheless, it must be his favorite and is finished with his large bat wings, bat ears and bat wand. Black and orange striped socks and a jack-o-lantern candy bucket, and Ben is ready to go. As with all Lori Mitchell sculptures at SYW, they are originally handcrafted and hand painted, then are reproduced in resin. Not to worry though, these reproductions are just as detailed and colorful as the artist intended. Another new trick-or-treater this season is the cute, soon to be favorite, Punkin Pie Halloween Sculpture.

If you liked Bat Boy Ben and continuing on with our Batty theme, consider the Batty Betty Halloween Sculpture, shown here to the left. Lori Mitchell is known for her little witches, and this season she does not disappoint. Batty Betty is a quirky witch with a love for bats. She’s ready for a night of trick-or-treating with her jack-o-lantern candy bucket and bat adorned wand. Appropriately dressed in black, orange and white, the real details are seen on her bat wings and curly blond pigtails with orange string ties. All of the Halloween sculptures mentioned here have a felted bottom to protect your tabletop or mantle surfaces.
