Behind the Scenes : Doggy Costumes

Posted by

It's the first day of Fall!  That means one thing- start thinking about your Halloween costumes!  This year Halloween falls on a Saturday so I'm sure lots of people will be going to or hosting a party.  Make sure to check out the BRAND NEW Special Issue- it's full of great party and decorating ideas, not to mention some BRAND NEW costumes!

Halloween special issue

How cool does Martha look?  Nick did such a great job with it- he'll be posting about some other costumes made just for this issue later in the week.  But for now... Doggy Costumes!!

Francesca and Sharkey

How cute are Martha's dogs Sharkey and Francesca??  And so well behaved!  Though as you can see- Sharkey got a little sleepy.

Sharkey's up!  And ready for the close up.  These two loved their costumes.  Find more photos and how-to instructions for the spider and moth costumes on the web, or in the Special Issue- it's one not to be missed!  Also- sign up for our online Halloween workshop- we'll be making lots of great projects over the weeks leading up to October 31st.

  • I've seen Balloon Spiders on Martha's tv show, used at the front door. Please give directions for making them!

    Thank you,
