It's Halloween in July

I know most people do Christmas in July, but I've gotta be different, I guess :)

I have a Halloween project that cost less than $1 to make. I had some of the felt, but even if you had to buy new felt sheets, it would cost you less than $2 total.

I just sketched out some ideas for the colors of felt I had, I couldn't decide if the witch or the bride of Frankenstein should be green, but in the end, I went with a green witch. The hair, eyes, and extras are also felt pieces. I hot glued them to a ribbon for a festive little Halloween banner. I submitted it to a craft magazine, but this idea didn't make it, so I get to use it on my blog. The faces are about 4x5 inches, like a card.

Here's a close-up. My fave is Frankenstein. I just finished up Penny Dreadful on Showtime and the monsters on there are less cute than this and much creepier.

I enjoyed the series, with monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein's monster. It's set in London and the costumes and scenery were right up my alley. It was a little graphic for my taste sometimes, but mostly it was just all good fun, even Dorian Gray showed up. And it's Showtime, so there was some nudity too. I liked the gothic feel of the show and how all the classic monsters kept showing up. Do you like scary stuff? I'm more of a don't-show-me-the-gore kind of gal. 

So, Happy Halloween early, and Happy Monday!
