Chart: Boo Trick or Treat by Stitching with the Housewives.

Fabric: Stitched on hand dyed 14 count Aida using Grey Rit Dye

Finishing Fabric is Wal Mart Halloween Fabric from their 2020 line.

Color Changes:

I changed the colors to the chart and used the following DMC

Cup – 844

  • Ecru
  • 3865
  • 310
  • 3826
  • 920
  • 3802
  • 731
  • 937

I finished these pieces on foam board and cardboard with spray adhesive and batting.  Then I attached the fabric using fabric-tac glue.  All of which are acid free adhesives.  I will be creating a tutorial for how I fully finish my projects without sticky board and hot glue very soon and you can watch me fully finish this in my upcoming Flosstube #3 being uploaded later this week.

I am displaying my finished work on a Halloween Metal Decor basket from Wal Mart this 2020 year and I only payed $2.97 for it!  I love that this display is also a functional piece for Halloween and plays on the actual cross stitch piece itself. This could not have worked out better for my halloween home decor this year!!!

I really really love this finish.  I went back and forth between adding trim and pom poms to it but in the end I stayed true to myself and kept my Halloween finish really simple.

I will continue to say this again and again.  

There is beauty in simplicity.

I am loving the charts coming out from Priscilla and Chelsea and canNOT wait to stitc their new Candy Cane Coop Chart.  I have a package coming in Wednesday from The Silver Needle with their new Christmas releases and I am so excited!

Thank you so much for being interested in my finish and I will see you in my next project 🙂
