Today is the third day of the Ghastly Ghouls Blog Hop, and also my day. Many thanks to the fabulous Carol @Just Let Me Quilt. The past two days have had some wonderfully creepy projects. Be sure and check them out, the full schedule is below.
Right after I signed up for this hop, I got an email from Bird Brain Designs and I saw a cute Halloween kit, which some squirrel encouraged me to buy. I love embroidery, and wool projects. The kit had everything in it, including the cute wagon buttons!
As I have also been on a gnome kick, I noticed this Candy Corn Gnome video and instructions at Ruffles and Rain Boots. There are very good instructions, but I had numerous do-overs on this one. I followed the directions for using alcohol ink to dye the beard and hat. I didn't like the first attempts, and did it over. I still have yellow and orange fingers and nails. I guess I should have worn gloves, but the deed was already done. The next problem I had was my personal problem. I am a Glue Gun 101 dropout. I always get glue all over the place and don't glue what I want to. She just folded the fleece over and glued them. Again I got glue all over the place and wasn't happy. I tried sewing them, but wasn't able to turn them inside out. I finally glued with some craft glue. She has a pattern for the bag, but wasn't able to get it printed and cut on my Cricut. I finally just printed it. I had to shrink the bag though I probably should have shrunk it a bit more,
Anyway this is the final product. I just love him so much!
The cute little bag has two sides.
I had one more project I wanted to do. A number of years ago I bought this paper mache pumpkin and wanted to do something with it. I decided I wanted to finish it for this blog hop. I spray painted it and managed to get paint all over my favorite leggings, carrying it into the house where it could dry quicker. I cute out the crow on my Cricut with vinyl and attached it to the pumpkin.
Thanks for stopping by, and again thanks to Carol @Just Let Me Quilt for another fun blog hop! Be sure and check out the other bloggers below.
