Ready for Halloween

I'm all ready for Halloween after some quick projects with stuff I had laying around the house. Aslan got a witches hat. Which is totally cracking me up - it's HUGE! It took Uber a little while to figure out what I was doing... luckily he laughed when he realized!

After seeing Jennifer's bat garland I just had to do some for myself. It turned out really well though I wish the ribbon I found had been longer.
They're made out of felt with embroidered faces. I used a double stretchy stitch for the detailing on the wings so they crinkle and hold themselves up.

I wasn't to particular with my stitching just had fun with it.

This whole garland making thing is addictive I want to make more now!!

Really cute stuff, love the glitter ribbon with the bats. Oh, and the dead eyes =-) Nicolas would have loved that. My goal this week is to finish the bats, so I can move on to the Thanksgiving garland.

Kudos on getting into the spirit! We've been doing similar. Jan put up some cobwebs in the dining room, and I put up lights and a few props in the upstairs' windows. It's a work in progress. :D
