Halloween Tricks and Treats

Last month, we reviewed Halloween Celebrations and I had promised to have more fun crafts for you from another magazine. So, as promised, today I am reviewing "Halloween tricks and treats". Let's start with the cover. I really like how the big pumpkin is decorated with black bead lace and beads. If you want to recreate it, there's a diagram available for it, at Apart from some very cute pumpkin carving ideas, this magazine has information about a lot of downloads, like the free owl stencils here. You will find the instructions for baking owl cookies using M&Ms, owl cupcakes with cashew & chocolate cookies, simple to make invitations, owl table runner, decorating party supplies (cup shown) and clever game ideas (cans shown).

I hope these images give you some idea about the projects I picked out for you that you might want to try for Halloween. I could not post images with directions and instructions for obvious reasons. Although, this magazine is not available online, I'm sure it's available at most of the stores (I bought it at Barnes and Nobles).

Perfect timing! I've got Halloween craft weekend coming up, with my nephew. I think I'm going to try and funktify a pumpkin! Thanks for the fun post.
