A Boooo-tiful Little Ornament

I'm feeling the Halloween spirit, so to speak :), and wanted to do a little seasonally inspired crafting today. This ornament is the result! Maybe he's not quite boo-tiful but cute, at least.

This little guy is made from a couple pieces of linen with quilt batting inside. I stitched around the edge, embroidered a wee face and painted rosey cheeks on him with watercolors (that barely show up in the photo). A few buttons, some wire and a bit of hand-lettering later and he's ready to hang from the rafters!

He can also hang from spooky plants and we have one perfect for Halloween in our backyard! I don't know what it is but it has black leaves that always look like they are a drop of rain away from curling up and dying. It also seems to attract more spiders than any other plant in the yard. Creepy!!

Happy October!!
