Adults and children alike love Halloween—the costumes, the trick-or-treating, the ghost stories, and the candy! In this spooky book, Emma Hardy will show you everything you need to make for a fun and frightening Halloween. There are seriously creepy fancy-dress costumes to be made, including a black cat, a spider, an alien, and a witch. You will also find scarily sweet treats such as witches' hat-shaped cookies, sugar skulls, candy apples, and other devilishly delicious delights, enough to satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooth. Throw a bewitching Halloween party and deck your house out in style with ghoulish decorations such as a grinning Jack-o’-lantern and some fluttering bat ornaments, or make the haunted house lanterns for your mantelpiece. There are easy ideas suitable for the beginner crafter or baker, as well as more challenging projects, and some are even straightforward enough for children to help you make.
