Witch Craft: Wicked Accessories, Creepy-Cute Toys, Magical Treats, and More!



I own numerous Halloween books, some filled with creepy recipes, some feature seasonal craft projects, and still others feature spooktacular decorating tips.  Some feature a bit of each of these.  Over the years I've become much more discriminating in my purchases and often find new titles are often sadly similar to books I already own.

Witch Craft, a new title from Quirk books, is an exception.  The projects and recipes are all unique and seem simple to replicate.  The instructions are all clear and easy to follow.  Some projects may involve techniques you may not be familiar with, but there are links provided to web sites with helpful information to help you learn to master new skills.

As an added bonus, one of the two editors and contributor of four of the projects is a fellow Pittsburgher and Steel Town Etsy team member.  My overall favorite project is the ruby slippers pictured at the beginning of this post and on the cover of the book.  Another project I'm especially eager to try is the Freaky Finger Food.  It will most definitely be one of the many dishes featured on the spooky buffet at our annual Boo Bash.

The book is available in bookstores such as Barnes & Noble, and Borders, as well as on Amazon.

If you live in Philadelphia, Seattle, or Pittsburgh, feel free to attend these upcoming book events:
Dracula DIY at the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia, Saturday, October 23.
A Halloween party at Cakespy in Seattle Saturday, October 9.
Shaler Library Costume Halloween Bash in Pittsburgh  October 15.
