Easy Halloween Decor

This project has been trending on a social media embroidery group I follow and it’s just too cute not to share. Felt cutouts in the shapes of pumpkins and a witch on a broom make a unique palette for Halloween embroidery.

The blanks can be found at dollar stores and can be used as placemats, table accents, or hung on a door.

Because they can’t be hooped, they should be easy to stitch by using adhesive tear-away stabilizer. You may want to use mictotex sharp needles and may need to loosen top tension to accommodate the dense felt.

The pumpkin is not totally symmetrical so is a bit challenging to center in the hoop. When all else fails, mark the center with your hoop template and advance your machine to the center point to start stitching the design.

Here is a selection of designs that would be adorable for this project, and they are on sale!

This Pumpkin Face would be adorable stitched on the pumpkin felt.

Welcome ghosts and goblins with these sentiments, Trick or Treat 1 and  Trick or Treat 2.

If the Shoe Fits and

Halloween Moon are perfect embroidery choices for the witch.

Halloween Web and Fancy Skull would both work well if embroidered with glow-in-the-dark thread. They would appear white by day and glow for a special surprise when the lights go out!

The Happy Halloween Crescent Moon and Halloween Cat would both be adorable stitched on the pumpkin.

The Happy Halloween Bat is better suited to the pumpkin while the Happy Halloween wording would work on both.

Cute ideas – can’t wait for Christmas!
