Halloween is quickly approaching and I have to admit I am not fully prepared. This quick and easy glow in the dark pendant project might just be the only festive accessory I will be sporting this Hallows Eve. Living in Baltimore I see a lot of crows and Ravens this time of year and they are fascinating creatures. Expect to see more of them in some upcoming designs! Meanwhile give this quick project a go with the free chart I provided below.
These glow in the dark threads from Kreinik are so much fun and I will be sure to use them in more of my designs. I am thinking these could be great for a series of patches for kids to applique onto their backpacks. What do you think?
What you will need:
-A small square of 18 count needlepoint canvas (no bigger than 3″ x 3″) *
–Kreinik glow in the dark thread 051F #12 braid *
–Kreinik Metallics 005c #12 braid *
-size 18 tapestry needle *
– chart (provided below)
-pendant hardware *
*If you need help sourcing these materials convo me and I will put together a kit for you on my Etsy shop
With this RavenChart transfer the design to the needlepoint canvas. You can outline it first with a sharpie pen or a pencil like I did. The basketweave stitch is all you will need for this project.
When you are done stitching carefully trim around the edge of your needlepoint and place in the pendant hardware. Charge up the threads with a light and then head out for a spooky night!
