100 Days of Halloween - Halloween Project Line Up

Now's the time to start getting ready for Halloween projects! For the last year or two I've been wanting to do something with felt and embroidery. I took a gander around Pinterest and here's what I found:

The above picture is kind of what I'm thinking of, something simple and folk-arty. Felt is inexpensive and I've got a bunch of crewel yarns and embroidery floss. I just noticed the buttons on it too! I've got lots of those.

This hat is just too cute! I think making a bunch of them and hanging them from a garland would be cute.

I love this Halloween Tree. I've been meaning to get one for years. I think I'll have to splurge this year. The felt ornaments on the tree seem simple and they are small. It's always good to start small.

If I get brave maybe I can work my way up to this! Not made of felt but, super adorable just the same. 

Do you have any Halloween projects in mind yet?

100 Days of Halloween

If I've counted right, including today, it's 100 days until Halloween! Are you all ready for it? I try to post as much as I can about Halloween during this time but, work seems to get in the way. There are, of course, plenty of crafts that I've been thinking of trying and craft stores are starting to bring out the orange and black so there is no lack of inspiration.

So, once again, here I go, devoting as much time as I can to this wonderful time of year.
