Is it too early for Halloween patterns?

I have two patterns for you today. They could not be more different. I had a request for both of these and thought I may as well share them with everyone. I know, there are some of you saying "no thanks". 

The spooky Halloween pattern is a door ornament. It is over ten inches tall. I painted the backer board black so the skull would stand out. I usually don't start Halloween patterns this early but the person who requested it plans to make a few of them and needed to get started. They will be cutting these on a laser but it will work just as well on the scroll saw.

The clarinet pattern below was also a request from a reader who has a friend who plays the clarinet. I know that the clarinet is a popular instrument for high school band members so maybe a few of you can use the pattern. It is over ten inches long.

Luther, from Luther's Woodworking YouTube channel, cuts the scorpion model I published back in May. He has a few tips for making the project. Take a few minutes to check out the video and leave him a comment. Make sure you hit the thumbs-up button. That helps his channel.
