The Art of Darkness

It’s Adorable Christmas Demon Time!

KrampusThe fabulous xJane dropped me a line about Etsy shop SWStitchery, which offers, amongst other things, felt Krampus ornaments. Since xJane grew up with a different color of Krampus,* the seller even made her a custom one.

Krampusnacht is December 5, so order early if you want to make sure you have sufficient pocket-sized Krampuses on hand to properly celebrate. Assuming you’re the sort of person who would put a Krampus in your pocket.

The shop also sells several other spooky felt ornaments, including teensy skeletal elves, cheerful Yetis, and goofy little bats. Its other main offering appears to be hair accessories, like this “bubble ghost” headband (I have to find some of that fabric) and this cute ribbon spider.

The whimsical little ornaments would be a great “spooky, but not too spooky” holiday decoration, and the prices are quite reasonable. Check ’em out!

(Thanks, xJane!)

*And if, “That’s a Krampus of a different color” doesn’t immediately become part of your vocabulary there’s something wrong with you.

    …now I feel like I’m being a Krampus racist (but since the darker Krampus is more popular around areas that call St. Nick’s companion Black Peter, I feel better about it). I don’t know how I missed those abominably adorable yetis, but you’d best believe that the ribbon spider is on my list of Etsy Things I Could Make Instead of Buy.

    Indeed. In fact, I think I’ll go out and buy some ribbon tomorrow and make one. It’s pretty damn adorable (and I have an ever-growing need for spiders in my life).
