I absolutely love Halloween, like most Craftsters do. I wanted a wreath for on my front door, so this is what I spent my weekend on:
I started with a simple circle of fabric, then cut a hole in the middle and stuffed it with shredded shopping bags. All of the figures are made from felt, with some extra details, then tacked on. To finish it, I wrapped some black tulle around and tacked it in place.
And here are the detail shots of each creature:
The vampire has a red lace cravat.
The bat's eyes are made from an old pair of earrings.
The spider's legs were some old bangle bracelets that I cut open and wrapped with black yarn. His eyes are also old stud earrings/
The skeleton is pretty straightforward.
The witch is my favorite. She has yarn hair, french knot warts on her nose and chin, and creepy eyelashes that I scored at a thrift store. Her hat is embellished with an old earring that looks like a moon and a star.
Thanks for looking and Happy Halloween! Comments are appreciated.
