Lynda McKinney of Oregon and in hula outfit, checks on the progress of "a bunch of grapes", a costume made with balloons and safety pins.
Participants decorate trick-or-treat bags, above, with materials supplied by the Oregon branch of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. At top left, a contest winner wears a costume called 'a bunch of grapes,' and at bottom left, Ms. Cleeland creates a lobster costume for Greg Haas, 5, of Oregon, another contest winner.
Holly Cleeland, author of 'Glue & Go Costumes for Kids,' helped participants.
The branch sponsored a demonstration last Saturday on how to make Halloween costumes using everyday materials.
