Crochet thread Jack-o-lanterns!

I am a total sucker for big bags full of spools of old crochet yarn at thrift stores. I mostly just want the whites/creams/ tans . . and occasionally find some TURQUOISE! I just LOVE to decorate with (and SELL!) big jars full of them!
Prettied up labels are fun sometimes.
And sometimes, I get ODD COLORS that I can NEVER USE, mixed in with the whites and creams. I sort out the ones that I like, and then toss the ‘odd balls’ into a box. Held on to them for a while ‘just in case’ I had a brainstorm. If not, they go into the ‘donation bag’ to go back to the thrift store on my next trip.
I was working on Halloween stuff when I came across my ‘box of oddball colors’ and was ready to toss the ORANGE ones into the donation bag. Lo and behold, I DID have a brainstorm!
Glued the hats on with tacky glue.
NOW we’ll just have to see if they will SELL! Can’t decide WHERE I want to put them . . . in my booth at Stars or on etsy????
