Crochet Mini Halloween Decorations Pattern: Bat, Monster, And Spider

It started with my previous mini Halloween decorations/stress balls pattern for a pumpkin, eyeball and mummy, and I had so many ideas leftover for more when I finished I decided to make those too! .

This time we have a bat, monster and spider to add to your Halloween decorations this year. These also make perfect little gifts when an alternative to sweets is needed!

I still have a few more ideas for these but I think they will have to wait for next year!
