Halloween Jack Skellington Keychain

I decided to make a mini Halloween project so as to get inti the mood and spirit of Halloween! Although here in Greece we do not celerate Halloween on the 31st of October, we have a similar tradition celebrated  at the end of February called "Apokries"! I am a fan of Halloween though and I like being part of this totally fun season spirit! This little pattern of Jack Skellington -The Pumpkin King (character of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Xmas) is very easy and you could easily sit an afternoon and make some keychains as Halloween gifts or even add them to your treat bag!:)

Small amount of white cotton yarn
Tiny amount of black coton yarn for eyes and details
3.5mm (E) crochet hook
Embroidery needle
Keychain
