These are so cute, and they look easy to make too! I am not sure where I will find orange crochet thread. It looks like I will be doing some online shopping. A cute Halloween tree will make a nice addition to our decorations. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Oh how cute are these Crochet Halloween Ornaments. I thing I'll be making a lot of these small ghost and Jack-o-Lanterns. They are just the right size for decorating the wooden railing in our home for Halloween. The patterns are very well written and reads well that anyone can create. I'm looking forward to doing this one.. Thank you so much for this free pattern.
