Knit + Crochet Halloween CostumeaIf you've been on the internet this week you probably saw the cutest Halloween Costume photo gallery from The Ellen Degeneres Show. We loved so many of knitted and crocheted projects that we created a Pinterest Board to share some of the favorites that we found.



Some of the costumes have patterns linked to them for creating and others are for purchase from sites like Etsy. Even with Halloween just a few days away, there is always time to think of next year. Also, kids love dressing up all year round so why not try your hand at some of the projects below? We'd love to see what you create. Check out our board below and be sure to hop over to our Pinterest page and follow us!

Tools for Kids Crafts: Pom Pom Maker

Clove Pom Pom Maker
Here at The Handwork Studio we love tools. We especially love tools that can make crafting easier and more enjoyable. We are huge fans of the Clover Pom Pom Maker. This amazing tool helps our campers make some incredible pom poms in various sizes and allow for so much creativity. We've created necklaces, ice cream, cupcakes, snowmen, eyeballs and so many other projects from the timeless pom pom!

Since Halloween is right around the corner and we're talking about pom poms, I dug up this great video of Miss Alisha teaching us how to make a pom pom eyeball.

For this projet you'll need yarn, a pom pom maker, a pair of scissors and a little bit of felt.


If you liked this project and are looking for some more pom pom project inspiration check out these Halloween Project ideas from Clover here.

We are all ready for Halloween and the Witches of Narberth event this coming Saturday. If you are in the area, make sure you stop by the studio to pick up a treat from us!

We still have some space in our Halloween Candy Making Workshop this Sunday, Oct. 26th from 3 PM - 5:30 PM. You can register online or by calling Miss Mary at the studio at 610-660-9600
