Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Offers a wide range of home décor, costume, and party ideas that are faithful to the creepy, eerie Halloween mood without giving up elegance or sophistication...The book not only does a great job of getting you in the Halloween spirit, but also tells you exactly what you need to re-create the ideas and gives easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for the projects. Even if you don't consider yourself to be the most experienced craftista, this book will take your Halloween decorations, parties, and costumes to the next level! --Tori Spelling, actress, author, and host of Craft Wars

“If you love making Halloween decorations I bet you will love Artful Halloween 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.” --Craft Gossip
