Witch Cauldron

Hello!

I got the stitching bug and just finished a little Halloween piece.


All started with an empty container of orange hot chocolate that I saved from last year.


So cute, but needed something more...


I stitched "Jinx" from Just Nan "Moon Riders" on 28 count evenweave using DMC.
I made it like a padded ornament, and glued it on the lid of the caldron, trimming  with a twisted cord.
I love Just Nan designs, especially the Halloween ones, but believe me, this is my first Just Nan finish ever!


I also glued a Halloween ribbon around the rim of the cauldron to cover the words "orange hot chocolate". To add a little charm, I made a bow for the side of the handle, using tulle and ribbon.


It was a fast, fun stitch! Now, I need to find more things to recycle.


I wish you a great weekend, and happy stitching!

Ana Paula.
