Faux Halloween Cross-Stitch

If you’ve been a reader of this blog for some time, you already know that I’m a huge fan of cross-stitch and needlework. It’s something I grew up doing with my mom and I’m so happy that it’s making a resurgence in craft circles. And so many of today’s projects are super cute and cheeky… they’re definitely not your grandmother’s needlepoint.

However, recently I’ve fallen head over heels for any type of stitching that is done in a new or unexpected way. Whether it’s large-scale versions that are traditional stitched onto walls or ordinary patterns created in a non-traditional medium, I love the twist on this classic craft.

So while working with metallic threads that were giving me frustrating results, I decided to change things up and ditched my needle and thread for a metallic pen.
