Halloween how-to round-up! Plus dogs in costumes!

Halloween how-to round-up!
I’m all talk with all of this Halloween exuberance, I have nothing prepared myself. I have elaborate ideas and schemes but the last few weeks have left no time to get a costume cooked up. Time to get on it right?! Regardless of my Halloween neglect, here are some great links for your Halloween edification, inspiration, or just plain enjoyment. Have a splendid weekend everyone and thanks for reading Maquette. I’m going to offer a free downloadable Halloween card for you next week!:

  1. Just in time for the election….political jack-o-lanterns! (More on politics, here’s something for an invitation that you might want to include. The U.S. election campaign is giving hallowe’en-ers a lazy costume option; use this notice to head them off at the pass.)
  2. Spooky Halloween Garland how-to via Paper Crave (with free silhouettes to cut out if you don’t want to design and make your own)
  3. Halloween Cocktails via Dabbled (your escape from politics for one night!)
  4. Martha Stewart Creepy cookie gallery (if your vice is sugar…mine is)
  5. MAKE Special Edition: HALLOWEEN, from the editors of MAKE and CRAFT, brings you 40-plus DIY projects for the holiday that’s made for makers. From the craftiest costumes to amazing animated props and the latest in computer-controlled haunted house effects (links references in the issue)
  6. Halloween fantasy mask tutorial via Craft blog

Best for last….dogs in Halloween costumes…best video music ever!:
