What to do with all of those Happy Meal toys. Finally I can use them. I sawed the heads off the figures and added a skeleton head. I painted and distressed them. My husband made the little stands they are glued to. The one on the left WAS Snow White. I added the poem SHE WALKS IN BEAUTY behind her. The other one was some teenage looking figure. She has a picture from the poem by Edgar Allen Poe TALES OF SUSPENSE.
