Martha Stewart Halloween

Martha Stewart has a special Holiday Halloween magazine out right now that has tons of fantastic ideas if you’re looking for some last-minute Halloween inspiration. (The ideas would work just as well next year, so it’s worth picking up and saving for later too!) Added bonus – see Martha decked out as both a “glampire” and a “goddess” on this double-cover “150 bad things” and “150 good things” issue, with details on how to recreate both costumes inside! A few of my favorite entertaining-related snippets from both sides are below…

Martha Stewart Halloween{pictured above} A creepy bug made from a pitted Kalamata olive, rosemary needles (for legs) and snipped chives (for antennas) crawls along the edge of some “eye-popping soup“. And frozen blueberries in boiling water help turn carefully cracked hardboiled eggs into “spiderweb eggs“. (see magazine for full recipes & detailed instructions)

I have started making new Dresden Christmas ornaments. I think my little bat would look great in your upcoming Halloween issue! Or, you can check my whole collection out on, look under ‘sellers’ and type in TheDresdenCottage. Let me know what you think!
