1  Spooky-Glam Halloween Wreath in Halloween Decor and Parties by fiberartsy on: October 17, 2014 07:11:18 PM
I made this wreath for kittykill for the 13 days of Halloween swap.  It's a little spooky and a little glam!

I wrapped a straw wreath form with some lacy ribbon, then wrapped again with some black eyelash yarn which added some fun texture.  I stretched some spider webbing across the top and made a little bunting adding the word 'boo'. 

Then added a paper flower, the glittered 'P' over the top of a black doily and some small silver flowers to anchor the bunting.

I love making wreaths and this one was no exception.  I hated to part with it. 
As always, thanks for looking!

2  Birdcage Graveyard in Halloween Decor and Parties by fiberartsy on: October 17, 2014 06:53:22 PM
I made this spooky little graveyard for kittykill for the 13 days of Halloween swap!  I picked up the birdcage Michael's, not really sure what I was going to do with it but decided to create a little scene inside of it and I'm so pleased with the result.

I made a tombstone out of polymer clay and made a beaded garland for the bottle brush tree. I covered the bottom with moss, using a piece of cereal box as a base.  Then added little buttons and jewels to complete the scene.

Then I painted a wooden candlestick and glued it to the bottom and also added a little pom pom fringe around the outside to add a little decorative touch. 

This was a super fun project!  Thanks for looking!

3  Haunted Shadowbox in Halloween Decor and Parties by fiberartsy on: October 17, 2014 06:43:06 PM
I made this shadowbox for kittykill for the 13 days of Halloween swap. I really had a lot of fun making this.  I hope to make more!

Most of the things I used I had on hand.  The pumpkinhead guy is a sticker that I attached to a spool so he would stand up.

I added this little paper bunting along the bottom and a bit of sparkle with a silver pipe cleaner.

Thanks for looking!

4  Spookified ornaments in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by fiberartsy on: October 17, 2014 06:27:05 PM
I stitched up a couple of ornaments for kittykill in the 13 days of Halloween swap.  I took two Sublime patterns and spookified them a bit.  I like how they turned out and it was fun to transform them!

I turned one of the Dream Homes into a haunted house....

....complete with a little ghost.

Then I used one of the matryoska dolls and zombified her with her a little blood drip

...and jack-o-lantern face along the bottom.

I backed them with some Halloween fabric.

These were really fun to stitch.  Thanks for looking!!

5  Vintage Cat Cross Stitch Ornament in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: October 17, 2014 06:12:47 PM
I made this wee cross stitch ornament for I Sew Cute in the OTT October Holidays Swap.  It's such a great pattern and was fun to stitch! I stitched it on some scrap linen I had on hand and made it into a little ornament complete with a little rick rack!

The pattern is from Stitches From the Heartland that I scored at the thrift store for a quarter!

Thanks for looking!

I received the most amazing package from lidehtium!!!

An amazing but a little creepy doll and a set of nesting dolls!

Here's the doll.  She's got button eyes and ribcage sewn on the front.  Creepy cool.

Here's the back of the doll where she used a doily which I thought was a cool touch.

Here's the nesting dolls that she painted with a Halloween theme...a haunted house, a witch, a jack-o-lantern, a black cat and a ghostie.  So super cool. 

Thank you SO much lidehtium!!  I absolutely love everything!
