It won’t be long before little trick or treaters will be ringing my doorbell. To help get in the spirit and give my house a festive Halloween decor, I think I’ll start working on this adorable Hoot Owl Cross Stitch Pattern.
I like this pattern because it has all of the typical fall colors, so I can keep it up for Halloween and Thanksgiving. This design isn’t too difficult, yet it has enough detailing to make it fun and interesting. I think I should be able to get it done pretty quickly and have it on display in a few weeks. It’s a good project to take on the road too, since there are plenty of blocks of colors that I can do while waiting in the car for my kids at school.
Here are a few more of my favorite Halloween craft ideas:
I have always enjoyed doing embroidery work and my most recent project is a pretty needlepoint piece that has been tucked away for a while. I plan on working on a silk embroidery project next.
In my search for embroidery projects, I came across this beautiful new eBook from Needle N Thread. Let me stress that I am not an affiliate and I make no money by mentioning this book. I simply love Mary’s work and wanted to show-off her new book.
I think the cover alone shows you just how beautiful her work is. And what I like even more is that she has focused on small projects that don’t require a lot of materials. Use up some of the stash you have lying around and start a project that won’t take too long to complete. I’m all about instant gratification, so a small project is right up my alley
