Here are 80 eerie projects—scary decorations, ghosts by the window, ghouls in your yard and on fences and porches. Creative ideas for every room and area will make your home the area’s Halloween masterpiece. Bonus: Party recipes, favors, and costumes. “The decorating ideas and party tips in this colorful book can make your Halloween a treat.”—Country Almanac.
Create a charming country-style Halloween setting through your whole house, from the front yard and the entryway to the windows, mantelpiece, and table, with a little help from Haunt Your House for Halloween. More sweetly spooky than scary, the decorations feature lots of simple, painted wood cutouts (ghosties, pumpkiny characters, rabbits, cats, crows), easy wreaths (such as a circle of ghost-wrapped lollipops), and clever edibles (sloppy joes whose buns masquerade as pumpkins; ghoul-aid; chocolate scaredy-snacks). Full directions and patterns are given for each project, although the book’s format occasionally makes finding the instructions for a particular project challenging: a series of photos illustrates a number of project tableaus, followed by the step-by-step instructions for those projects compressed together, then another series of photos, and so on. Everything is clearly pictured, though, and the directions do refer back to the illustration page, so this minor drawback shouldn’t keep Halloween crafters from finding their way. –Amy Handy
