Welcome to Halloween Week 2011! For the next five days, expect 2+ posts a day featuring Halloween party concepts, D.I.Y. tutorials and ideas, vintage and budget Halloween inspiration, costume ideas, and scary book recommendations. After that, it’ll be back to normal M-W-F, non-Halloween posting.
Some of you may not be too excited about Halloween, and I’ll admit to not being much of a Halloween person myself. But even I had a blast pulling together these posts. In terms of variety and creativity, you can’t beat Halloween crafts & concepts: you have your pick of cute, gross, gothic, and even glam options.
A quick list of my top Halloween resources:
- Martha Stewart’s Halloween Central: Martha is the Halloween Queen.
- Instructables’ Halloween: Lots of creative, user-submitted tutorials.
- Halloween Forum: If you’re looking for creepy and gruesome Halloween crafts, this is the place.
- Pinterest: Here’s my Halloween board, and here are my top Halloween pinners: Leanne; Wen Duan; Karen Clifford; Amelie Bernard; MaryAnn Rizzo; Graziela Mink; Jessica; Chris Kenyon; and Andrea Paulin.
