51  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Acorns and a turkey on: November 22, 2007 07:25:54 AM
I made some acorn ornaments for my Thanksgiving tree.  I crocheted the cap and made a pompon for the nut.  I then shaped the pompon to give it more of an acorn nut shape.  I think they turned out great. 

Here you can see on one the tree.

I saw a turkey on etsy that I liked so I decided to "copy" parts of it.  I liked the body but wanted a different tail.  Here's what I came up with. 

52  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / Thanksgiving Decorations, tree, tree skirt, pumpkins, ornaments, etc. Heavy IMG on: November 22, 2007 07:03:09 AM
Well after Halloween, I decided to leave my tree up and decorate it for Thanksgiving.  I think it turned out really great.

I also have a little seasonal table that we put some decorations on.  I made the turkey without at pattern (and forgot to write down how I did it so I could make another of course), I saw one similar on etsy and decided to make one and change it up a bit.  The feather is from the turkey that belongs to my neighbor next door.  My son found it.  The boat was made in the Home Depot workshop for this month.  My husband brings our son every first weekend of the month to the workshop.  This month was the Mayflower.  I think its wonderful. 

My son, Colin, and I made foam tipis to go on the tree and to give to his teacher. 

You can see the tipi on the tree here. You can also see the crocheted and pompon acorns I made. 

Here is a close up of the acorns that I made:

I also made a pumpkin patch for the under the tree as well as a double layer tree skirt. 

I have more information and picture on my blog.  Check them out.


53  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / What's in the bottle, potion ingredients, witch kitchen jars, mad scientist lab on: November 12, 2007 05:47:11 AM
So I was wondering for those people that have made spooky jars for Halloween, what "ingredients" have you put in the jars?  In other words what plain everyday (or not so everyday) items do you put in your jars to make them spooky?

Do you just use colored water?  Do you dress it up with something else.  I'd like some inspiration so I can make a list for next year.
54  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Harvest/Thanksgiving Tree Topper on: November 08, 2007 07:14:52 PM
I used a white Christmas tree to make a Halloween tree this year.  I had several options of what I could do with it after Halloween.
1. Take it down, just to put it up again for Christmas
2.  Leave it decorated for Halloween until Christmas
3.  Leave it up but don't have decorations on it
4.  Leave it up and decorate it for Christmas early
5.  Decorate it for Thanksgiving.

I chose option 5.  I think its turning out great.  I don't know that I'll get much done this year before I stop making Thanksgiving ornaments and start making Christmas ornaments/decorations.

Anyway here is the Topper I made for the tree:

Its made from 3 different red heart yarn crocheted together.  It turned out better than I thought it would.
