Haunted lights and spooky sights, ghoulish glowing luminaries, frightful festoons: what fun! Halloween has become one of the most popular holidays of the year, with legions of would-be creepy creatures on the lookout for fantastic ideas. And the newest craze is to go old-fashioned, with charmingly nostalgic folk-style costumes, decorations, and other accessories. No one does that better than designer Bethany Lowe in this, the very first book to focus solely on folk art projects for Halloween. She gets into the spirit of the season with 30 sensational projects that range from trick-or-treat cones to a crazy quilt pumpkin pillow.
Invite friends to a Halloween party with an alluring invitation made from vintage illustrations, and then have guests don delightful crepe paper hats and tassel masks. Deck the chairs with howling black cats, and swathe the walls and ceilings with flying bats. All the items are photographed in home settings, making you feel as if you’re part of Bethany’s Halloween thrills and chills.
