There is lots of variations of this all over Pinterest, but I thought I’d have a go myself. I was excited to see a decent range of Halloween themed fabric in Spotlight this year, which made choosing my materials easy. I bought 40cm of each one, figuring 20cm strips would be sufficient. The ring was a pre-made one from there as well. Around $4.
I cut the fabric into 2x 20cm wide strips, then cut those large strips into roughly inch wide strips. I was not too fussed about them all being perfect, as the over all results I was going for was messy anyway. Then the tying on. I finished the whole thing in the car on a day trip to the city and back, so just over an hour. I think the cutting into strips actually took longer than that!
Not far into it, I realised I had made my strips way too short for the size of the loop, it just looked too sparse. But they were already cut, so I decided to continue on then just cut the hoop smaller later. That solved the problem just nicely! The witch hat was a last minute addition, it was actually part of a halloween headband, again from Spot Light, I just chopped off the headband. The kids helped paint the wooden letters and I glued them onto the most appropriate coloured ribbon I had on hand. Done.
I didn’t take a photo of it against our door, because the Kookaburras, white timber and glass just didn’t quite work!
