Chenille Black Cats and Pumpkin Boys
Each year around this time I start making chenille stem Christmas ornaments, but this year I decided to create a few black cats and pumpkin boys for those who decorate Halloween trees.
I attached three chenille ornaments to each distressed and stamped tag and off they went to become decorations at some one's house.
Since this was a favorite craft for several decades, I will not bore you with a list of instructions.
Fat and thin chenille stems in black and orange
Skinny stems in stripes
Wire cutters (do not ruin your scissors cutting chenille stems!)
Pumpkin face and cat face images from the Graphics Fairy.
Cut into pieces for the legs and arms. Use the striped pieces for waists, tails, and hangers.
Cut out all those teeny little heads.
(This may be why my pics are blurry!)
A headless black cat!
Another blurry pic - must be allergies.
I actually thought these were in focus yesterday.
I need my eyes examined.
Oh, yeah, just did that, but my eyes were just too blurry, I could not take the tests.

Joined by his buddies.
A finished pumpkin boy along with his pet owl.
I attached their heads with double-sided glue strips.
An easy craft for children after the stems are cut.
I know you think I am being a slacker with the painting and the organizing, but you are going to be so surprised.
