Halloween Goodies

I got my Halloween Goodies out to inspire me to make Halloween projects.  I love Halloween colors ... black, orange, green, purple and yellow.  Now it's time to create!

Felt Fringe Flowers

Felt flowers are all over crafty blog land.  I especially love the fringe flowers.  I saw a die that's used to make one and it looked easy to make by myself.  I cut regular 9"x12" felt lengthwise into strips with different widths (about 1.5" width) and folded it in half.  I rolled it and inserted a safety pin at one end (not the fold side) to hold it.
I snipped the felt at the fold to create the petals.
It unravels into these fringe flowers.
To create a little variation I snipped at the fold of some of the flowers to double the number of petals.
Here's all my felt fringe flowers waiting to be used.  You can use a glue gun to keep the felt together at the back and remove the safetypin or sew it.
