Chenille and Honeycomb Pumpkin Head Ornaments

I have always loved Victorian Chenille Ornaments and decided to challenge myself to make a couple using only items already on hand. While not truly vintage looking I think they turned out cute and are a welcome addition to my Halloween tree! I loved the idea of the 3D honeycomb pumpkin heads, they are actually toothpicks Ma gave me:@) I only had white chenille and think I'll pick up a multi-color pack just in case I decide to make some more. One thing most traditional ornaments seemed to have in common was a little sparkly bling... So I couldn't leave that out! I'm calling these cuties "Punkin' Heads".

I'm happy with the mischievous little boy, but the sweet little girl might need something in her other hand or arm... Maybe a Trick or Treat sign or a teeny tiny black cat.

  3. Oh my goodness how cute can you get?! These are darling and so refreshingly original! As you would probably agree, most Halloween crafts these days are just rehashes of old ideas. I love making discoveries like these on a blog like yours!
    And thank you for the nice comment to me - you are so right! A paper shape ribbon garland would look great on a Halloween tree - which it just occurred to me - I need a Halloween tree!

  5. Since I don't have one crafty bone in my body, I don't think I'll be making these cute ornaments. But you've inspired me to dig out some of my Halloween decor :)

  6. Well, as usual Google won't let met comment on Blogger blogs from Chrome so I switched over to Firefox. Lynn, those are so, so cute. We don't even get trick-or-treaters where we live. If we did, those would look be wonderful hanging in my window. You have a Halloween tree. How fun.
