Pipe cleaner Halloween characters

Back in 2004, Martha Stewart featured the how-to instructions and printables for these Halloween pipe cleaner creations and candy dishes here.

I decided to embellish Martha's creations a bit further.

Happy Crafting!
Get ready for lots of orange & black eye candy.
One of these will be in my upcoming Halloween give-away.
Keep visiting!

So retro!!! Your post has reminded me of a book I have dedicated to bump chenille stems. I entirely forgot about this book until I saw your creations. I also saw these ones online for Christmas!

:-) I love the little black pipe cleaner cats in their bright orange skirts and little tutus! I wonder if my little black kitten would wear a tutu if I made it for her?

Cindy said...

I love those! I am having withdrawals from my crafting and decorating...You aren't helping any with all your great creations. (Just kidding...Keep them coming!)

The prep work continues in the kitchen...He should be working on the ceramic tile floor starting today. Hopefully, he will be done by Friday. The cabinets will go in next!

Happy Wednesday...
