I've been hit with the Autumn Harvest Bug so everything I touch now has elements of the Fall. I was so excited to finally break out my Halloween fabric!
Hand-carving wooden pumpkins and needle-felting Halloween characters have been my driving force lately.
Currently, I'm working on a Circus-themed piece. So far, I needle-felted a wool clown and have him riding a tiger. Originally, I wanted an elephant, but the orange and black stripes of the tiger were perfect colors for Halloween.
I found some "Boyds Bears" circus wagons at my local thrift store that I knew I HAD to have! After painting and decorating this one for Halloween, I added a sign on both sides advertising an up-coming Halloween Costume Contest. So far, I've got a clown, a witch, and a mummy entering the contest.
This clown was so fun to make, I may have to make some more!
Some people shake their head at all my supplies, but I say, you have to have the right tools for the job.
Here's a little elf waiting for a home. Patience, little guy. I'll find a place for you yet.
I'm envisioning this paper clay jack o'lantern painted a deep orange and wearing a black robe.
I didn't realize how much Halloween trim I had until I dug through this old hat box. Rediscovering supplies is half the fun!
Can't wait to show you the finished piece!
