Wicked stitch pattern is a freebie from You Can Make This. It originally calls for a crystal spider head with sequins on the body - but I didn't have either of those on hand, so I did my usual thing of just "making it work" as Tim Gunn says. In fact, that's pretty much my craft mantra - just make it work. So I used extra large french knots for the body instead of sequins and just satin-stitched the head. You can see that I'm not the neatest stitcher in the world, but I love how it looks!
The frame was an unfinished wood frame from Hobby Lobby - I just painted it black, sanded the edges for a bit of distressing, then added my very favorite matte craft varnish for the tiniest bit of sheen.
It's now one of my favorite pieces on my Halloween mantel...
Thanks for looking!
