Tricks and Treats is brimming with great ideas for costumes, pumpkin carving, decorations, parties and tempting foods:
Set the scene with Hanging Ghosts, Creepy Crawlies and Black Cat Decorations. Carve grimacing jack-o-lanterns and turn garden squash into catty windowsill delights. Fun-to-wear costumes for kids like Siegfried the Sorcerer and the Fairy Princess. Plus scary, but safe, special effects makeup for faces and hairdos. Fun food for all ages like Mini-Pumpkin sandwiches and Ghost cookies. Throw a frightfully good party with festive place mats and centerpiece ghosts, handmade trick-or-treat bags and inexpensive toys.
Step-by-step instructions are provided for every project, along with a separate chapter on crafting basics: there's information on transferring patterns, simple sewing, machine applique and embroidery, working with Styrofoam and using a glue gun.
