Martha's boney set

Every year I like our Halloween set better than the last. This year's bone theme was morbid yet elegant and I was really inspired by it! The stylist did an amazing job! Check out some of the details of Martha Stewart's TV show set...

bone skull bracelet

Hey look!—a fun little skull bracelet made out of real animal bone! Ewwww!
With just two pieces of wire woven through skull beads, you can make one too! Look at the pictures and try it yourself...
To learn how to make more creepy but elegant bone jewelry, go to thecraftsdept blog for instructions!

Need a last minute Halloween costume?

You can make this ribcage t-shirt?!?!!!! It's super easy and I can show you how to make it here!
or watch live on the Martha Stewart Show on the Hallmark channel.

sparkle spider

A little spider  I made out of Swarovski crystals and gold wire.
Isn't he pretty for a spider?

cute spook

Halloween party picks I made back in season 2 for the Martha show. Too cute to actually use as food picks, so I still have them after 4 Halloweens have passed!

bone chapel

The Sedlec Ossuary, in the Czech Republic, is a church where the altars, chandeliers, urns, bells and even a coat of arms are all made of human bones! The small church hoards about 40,000 human skulls and skeletons from many centuries of war and plague victims.
One of the most exquisite sites to see I'd imagine. A macabre sanctuary like this would be the epitome of a haunted house, perfect for Halloween...

how-to on theCraftsDept Blog!

Check out my weirdo Halloween how-to on Martha's theCraftsDept blog. I might actually be the first person to have ever crafted a Homemade Owl Pellet!
A lesson in biology and a craft project perfect for the science fair! Super fun, easy and simple to make. Kids, make them this weekend after your family goes on a haunted hay ride and pass them out to your friends at school next week! They'll think you are a total nerd but at least your science teacher will think you're rad.
I was giggling while taking pictures of the owl pellet process. 
The skeletons are really eerie to play with—Creepy.
If you want a real owl pellet, visit Pellet Lab and dig into a mass of fur and bones! For more information about owls and their pellets get Owl Puke: Book and Pellet.
