Halloween is one of the best times of the year for making things. But the scary truth is, many Halloween crafts end up looking a lot more homemade than handmade …eek!
Enter the new book “Artful Halloween: 31 Frightfully Elegant Projects”by Susan Wasinger from Lark Crafts and Sterling Publishing. Projects in this book will help inspire some polished looking handmade Halloween projects that are especially fitting for adults like these bottle bats.
Today’s giveaway is for a free copy of the new book “Artful Halloween: 31 Frightfully Elegant Projects” by Susan Wasinger. There’s a good variety of crafts and techniques like paper crafting, sewing, painting, card making, rubber stamping, and more, and there’s a good span of uses like baking, decorating and gifting.
My favorite craft books are those that teach me new techniques that I can apply to other seasons and occasions. Like these Shrinky Dink monster cupcake toppers hand drawn with a Sharpie marker. I can see sketching other things like hearts for Valentine’s Day or snowmen for Christmas.
And this Black Skelton Flower garland? Would also be pretty poinsettias for Christmas or colorful Easter spring flowers.
There’s also some great clip art in the back like this skeleton and owl.
Plenty of goodies to help you create your own elegant handmade Halloween.
