Halloween by Martha

Martha Stewart is the undisputed queen of home decor, and halloween is no exception. Here are a few of our fave halloween crafts by Miss Martha.


Carrot Nose Jack-O-Lantern

Whether you're carving, decorating, or using this classic fall gourd for Halloween inspiration, our pumpkin ideas will excite you all season.

If you don't have time to carve a complete face, a carrot will add some character to your jack-o-'lantern.













Drippy Blood Candles

Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" (actually red candle wax). Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.












Spider Squash

What would Halloween be without a macabre evocation of the denizens of the night? These multilegged creatures rise up from the damp earth and moss to skitter across cold stones.

Black-green squashes, such as 'Table Ace' acorn, are carved with a linoleum cutter, which removes only the outer flesh.
