Jacks and Skulls Inspiration

Jack O Lantern Hoop on The Pink SamuraiJudging from all the fantastic crafts I see out on the web this week, the spooky season is almost upon us! This week is coming up Jacks and Skulls in terms of craftspiration, so I hope you enjoy this spooky roundup!

This Jack O Lantern Hoop on The Pink Samurai is cute, quick to make and delightful, indeed! This would be a perfect craft to repurpose some orange fabric, be it an old t-shirt or corduroy. In lieu of stitching with black embroidery floss, you could cut out your shapes in black felt and glue in place – a perfect way to “carve” a pumpkin with a lot less funky smells and mess.

Better yet, this pumpkin can go in your closet all year, and your closet won’t smell any funkier for it!

Skull Sweater Pillow on A Beautiful MessThis fun Skull Sweater Pillow on A Beautiful Mess looks like another quick, wonderful stitch. Of course it would be just as fun (if not more fun) stitched on an actual sweater for an awesome addition to your Halloween wardrobe!

The free cross stitch skull template offers so many fun possibilities –¬†for a little more structure, you can stitch it up using some handy Waste Canvas.

I’d love to see this skull on a kid’s sweatshirt – or maybe just my own!

Potted Jack O Lanterns Free Pattern on Primitive BettysThis Potted Jack O Lanterns Cross Stitch Freebie on Primitive Bettys is so adorable – stitched up by Betty in 3 shades of DMC floss, it makes a sweet addition to Halloween decor!

I think this would look lovely on any natural linen or a gray Aida cloth.

Mini Sugar Skull Pattern by Shannon on Crafty PodThis lovely Mini Sugar Skull Pattern by Shannon on Crafty Pod would look wonderful small or large.

It looks perfectly spooky in all-white embroidery floss, but it would also be wonderful to get creative with your favorite bright shades of floss on this project, too!

Scrappy Halloween Table Mats on So Sew EasyI’m loving the elegantly spooky feel of these Scrappy Halloween Table Mats on So Sew Easy – Deby provides a video tutorial, helpful step-by-step photos, and links to a free file of downloadable spooky shapes like this Jack O Lantern, black cat, haunted house, witch, and bat!
