I really enjoyed designing these two sets of Halloween ornaments. They are fun to scroll and can be used in so many ways to decorate for the upcoming Halloween season. I left a set of natural maple, and I stack cut them with a layer of birch plywood underneath so I got two sets in the time it took to cut one. The birch set I then sprayed with some flat black Krylon paint and then applied some beautiful hot-fix rhinestone accents to them. They came out really cool! I think the keys will look awesome tucked in the stretchy spider web decoration you can buy from the dollar store. They would look cool in a doorway or on an all-season tree (which is where mine are going to go!)

Thanks as always for looking. The patterns for these are available on my site, as well as many other holiday scroll saw and painting patterns.

These are quite unique and very nicely scrolled. The detail of your work shows how much you love your craft!

Thank you so much mmh. I love your Edgar Allan Poe quote. I am a big fan of Poe from back when I was in University. :)

These are nice. I so enjoy looking at what you have to offer at your website.

I am getting better with my scrollsawing. I do enjoy it. My only problem is following the line. I will do great and then all of a sudden I am off the line. Gotta love it :)

I just love the delicate touch you have with your machine Shelia, that is why you are able to make the absolute most of your great designs.
Lovely fine work :)

Thank you all very much. I do love this kind of tight scrolling. It is a lot of fun and a bit of a challenge. But the practice make me get a bit better each time. I appreciate your nice comments a great deal. :)
