Haunted House: Voodoo Doll

~With my husband I started this little collaboration to make a Haunted Doll House for my daughters. My husband makes the house and I crochet all the spooky dolls. Hopefully it will al be finished for Halloween~

On Pinterest I saw this free pattern for a voodoo doll and I thought it would fit right in with the rest of the monsters living in the doll house. I did some alterations to make it a bit smaller, because otherwise the doll would stick her head through the roof.

Skull Cookie Lollipops

Today my daughters wanted to make something eatable for Halloween, but I know they can't concentrate for hours on it without eating from it, so I choose something simple to make, ready in ten minutes, but with a real Halloween look.

I bought white oreos, cup cake sticks and chocolate decoration pencils and that was all we needed.






I found this idea here.

Haunted House: The Mummy

~With my husband I started this little collaboration to make a Haunted Doll House for my daughters. My husband makes the house and I crochet all the spooky dolls. Hopefully it will al be finished for Halloween~

Of course there has to be a scary mummy in the house!

For this pattern I used the little book 'Amigurumi en Monsters' by Tessa van Riet (only in Dutch, unfortunately).

Halloween Skull

Although it's around 30 degrees Celsius here for the last couple of days, fall is definitely in the air. And all spiders know it. I can tell by the thousands of webs that decorate my garden, all of them with spiders in it that seem to get bigger every year. This one was about 4cm (legs included). It's a good thing I'm not afraid of spiders at all, because I have to push through webs every morning, just to get out of my garden.


Even while I was taking pictures of the skull I made for Halloween, a spider came crawling towards the skull, threw out a thread and started right away making a web between the skull and my pergola. 





Do you know Black Death Vodka? That's what's inspired me making this one. Not the vodka itself, I don't even know what it tastes like, because I never drink alcohol, but the bottle.
