Dress Up On October 31st

Halloween is an exciting and fun-filled occasion for my family, and I love to make costumes for the kids. Would you like some fantastic ideas and inspiration for creating Halloween attire? Your Hyannis Library suggests these books:

Better Homes & Gardens Halloween: 101 Frightfully Fun Ideas. (749.5941)
Dozens of easy-to-decorate pumpkin ideas, costumes for the whole family, delicious treats to concoct, and decorating ideas to scare them silly in this bright collection of Halloween fun craft and decorating ideas for families.

Country Living Handmade Halloween : Ideas for a Happy, Haunted Celebration. (749.5941)
Offers designs for easy costumes, step-by-step decorating plans, and provides recipes for holiday treats.

The Penny Whistle Halloween Book by Meredith Brokaw and Annie Gilbar. (J793.2)
Discusses the history of Halloween and includes instructions for making costumes and decorations and planning games, activities, and menus for Halloween parties.

And my all-time favorite costume book in the CLAMS system:

Jane Asher’s Costume Book by Herself, Jane Asher. (J391)
This book is fun to look at, the instructions easy to follow. Famous people and their kids are the models. Even I can make the flower costumes!
Available at Brewster, Orleans, and Wellfleet
