I don’t know about you but Halloween crafting has got to be some of the best! And the new book Artful Halloween: 31 Frightfully Elegant Projects is just the ticket to get your scissors and glue gun in action! It got my wire cutters and needle nose pliers out of moth balls! I had to make something practically instantly I was so inspired. See the wicked cool bead and button spiders I made using the awesome tutorial that Lark books are known for over at Sweater Surgery. And If you love making Halloween decorations I bet you will love Artful Halloween: 31 Frightfully Elegant Projects as much as I do. The projects are, as the title states, elegant but not too fussy or time-consuming which is just the way I like my holiday crafts.
More about the book from the publisher Lark Crafts:
“These 30+ costume, pumpkin, and home-decorating ideas are not just beautiful–they are scary beautiful. From unique pumpkin decorations to a “blood”-splashed dinner-party centerpiece to a Yard Specter made from two poles, a string of lights, and torn, draped fabric, these creepy but stylish Halloween projects will give your home a spooky, sophisticated look . . . with gothic flair!
