Haunting Lace Pumpkins

Haunting Lace Pumpkins

These Haunting Lace Pumpkins are a spooky way to decorate your home for Halloween this year. I really love the intriguing design that this Halloween crochet pattern creates on the outside of your pumpkin, especially if you've already painted it a different color or made a creepy crawly design underneath. These pumpkin covers are definitely unique and not something that most people will see while they're out trick-or-treating. If you've gone and bought fake pumpkins, then you can use this homemade Halloween decoration for years down the road.

I am assuming what she means is 6 inch, 9 inch, and 13 inch pumpkins. -) Gosh, I haven't used Aunt Lydia's crochet thread in many, many years. I have made lace tablecloths with it. These are a collection of very nice looking lace patterns. They look vintage and modern at the same time! Martha Stewart would be proud.
