Stitched Halloween wall decorations

Hey, while we're on the subject of cross stitch, have you seen the stitched Halloween wall art at Decor Hacks? Find the tutorial right here.
(Via Curbly.)

In other news, I just attempted to fold this origami spider. The video tutorial is good... except I used regular printer paper which is too thick. Use origami paper, or there will be too much bulk to deal with and the spider's rear will stick straight up in the air. My spider now lives in my trash can where he will be joined by other garbage and hauled off to the recycler. Origami fail.

I kind of want to step on him.

Emily said...

He looks especially vicious hiding down there, poised for attack.

Grandma G said...

I think tour spider looks creepier with it's back end up like that. Like Emily said- poised for attack!

Attach a bit of thread to his sticking-up end and hang him from the ceiling!

I just pulled out my trash bag spider webs from last year and they still look awesome!! Maybe I will need to add an origami spider crawling on them =)

Thank you!!

Thank you for featuring the cross stitch canvases! I am motivated to cross stitch everything I see now.

Your spider is sorta crazy. I think you should name it Beyonce, because it's bootylicious.

Such cute stitched Halloween decorations!

You should YouTube the "peacock spider" (Maratus volans). The male of the species uses its abdomen to do a funny little mating dance. It really reminds me of your spider!!! :)

Patty said...

It's a spider? It looks like a mutant crab - no failure here!

Jessica Jones said...

When you're trying to make a spider, a crab is a failure. :)

Barbara said...

A dead spider is always better than a live one, IMHO! :-)

Is that spam just above my post, by any chance?

Jessica Jones said...

Yep, deleted it.
