My daughter is mad about Halloween. She’s been talking about this year’s costume since last Halloween. She’s been planning this longer than her birthday party!
We’re away on holidays in the lead up to this year, so I won’t have the time to replicate last year’s epic La Muerte costume so instead this year I’ve channelled my energies into making a Halloween wreath.
I used a foam circle which I picked up at my local craft store, and a ball of the new Scheepjes Panda Sparkle and went for it!
I first wrapped the foam in the sparkle yarn (using about half of it) and then I made some cute little amigurumi Halloween critters for decoration.
I’m especially happy with the spider web and little redback spider in the middle.
Raina insisted on there being a vampire and a witch, and would have been happy if it had been completely covered in pumpkins, but one has to draw the line somewhere!
To make the amigurumis I picked up some Scheepjes Catona 25g balls in Halloween colours and rifled through my Catona stash for anything that I had missed (It’s quite the stash!). I only used small amounts, so this is where the 25g balls are just the best.
The Panda Sparkle is a great decoration or amigurumi yarn. It’s loads of fun and the wee one is already making more plans for the leftovers. A spooky spider garland, perhaps….
The Panda and Catona yarns are available from Wool Warehouse* globally, and great Scheepjes retailers in the Benelux I’ve seen it at Ria’s Style here in Almere actually!
