Halloween Crafts {already}?

So I have a thing for doilies and thought, they actually make a cute web... so my mom made me some spiders to go on the "web"... ♥




I stumbled upon a HUGE vintage dictionary at the thrift store and drew up a bat pattern and made a garland!

Going batty...

Then I thought I'd try my hand at some {spooky} silhouettes...

Love them all, Jenny!. I want that last one...it would look so cute in my living room...will head to etsy and get it.

Also I added your button but when I hit the button it does not go to your page...I have done it a couple of times...I hit it on your page and it goes so I don't know what may be wrong.

So excited to see some Fall decor coming out in time for the holidays...I have our big halloween party and I want to make a couple of things...so please share more ideas when you get them.

Too cute! I just love the webs! Is it that time already? I can't keep up these days. The garland is adorable too. Did you cut out all those bats?
The fall bug has not bit me yet...

Yup, time to get those Halloween craft going! You have quite the head start! Good job!

Hi Jen :-)
an idea for you - work some teeny tiny acorns into the webs. They might look like bugs the web caught ;-)

Very creative way to use some of your hoops!

Adorable! Great idea with the spider web doilies. Mimi

I'm in agreement with the rest, the spiderweb doilies are super cute!

I just made a Halloween wreath last week, WHILE singing Christmas carols...it may be August, but it's always nice to have things ready ahead of time.

Rebecca said...

So cute! I've put doilies in hoops before (for wall art) but never thought to add a spider! And I love the bat garland!! When I start writing articles about Halloween crafts I'd love to include these!

I love all of these - but that spidery silhouette is really spooky and my favorite. Brrr- goosebumps now!

Lacy @ Catholic Icing said...

Popping over from Dollar Tree Crafts to say... this is so stinkin' cute! What an adorable idea! I think I'm going to make one to keep up year round. Just wish I knew how to crochet a little spider to go with it. Maybe I'll make one from felt. Thank you for sharing this adorable idea! :-)

This is so great! I'd like to share it on my blog, :) I can't bring myself to cut up one of my own doilies, thank goodness I have a local dollar store, lol!

Michelle@Somedaycrafts said...

This is my favorite spiderweb ever! Great idea! I am featuring this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com.
