Headless Lady!

Happy Friday!!
Here is what I am working on for one of my Halloween decorations.
I saw this in the new Hallmark Magazine for Halloween.

This really cool headless lady.
So of course I have to try to make one.
This is her so far, considering they don't really give you many directions.

I made her body with paper bags. I got cheese cloth and dyed it with coffee. She smells like a latte.
Got some old gloves at an antique mall. Now I need to make her little hat and carve the faux pumpkin head. She took much longer than I expected, but I wanted to get her just right.

I am having way too much FUN!!!

I hope I can have her all done this weekend.
Have a great one!
