Looking For A Martha Stewart Halloween Magazine?

Martha Stewart Halloween magazines are one of the best resources you can find for great Halloween ideas. They include many fabulous recipes, crafts, costumes and decorating ideas. Every year I love reading the new issue and I love revisiting the old issues. I know many of you do, too.

On this page, you will find an index of the back issues of Martha Stewart Living's Halloween specials and October issues spanning the years 1997 through 2014.

You will also find the 2014 issue, which features Martha looking stunning in silver and blue on one side and has some unusual Halloween pumpkins and a handsome owl on the other side. Included are stories about Halloween pumpkins, crafts and costumes.

Whether you are just starting your collection of Martha's Halloween magazines or you are just missing a single issue, I hope that I can help you find what you are looking for!

I apologize for the quality of some of the pictures. I am changing them as I obtain better quality photographs with which to do so.

Have a boo-tiful visit and a positively scary Halloween!

Martha Stewart's Halloween Magazines Are Full Of BAD THINGS

And GOOD THINGS, too!

The Best of Martha Stewart Halloween Handbook 2010

Wondering what is in the 2010 Halloween special? - Or how much the Halloween Handbook costs?

This Martha Stewart 2010 Halloween Magazine Was A Special Collector's Edition.

FINALLY, I have my very own copy of 'The Best of Martha Stewart Halloween Handbook' at hand. Martha fans, read that carefully for this is definitely a 'best of' meaning that many of the ideas presented in this special collector's edition have appeared previously in Martha Stewart Living or in Martha's Halloween specials.

My opinion? If you want to own all of the Martha Halloween publications, you will want to add this to your collection. If you already own all of the Halloween magazines, then you might not need this one. If you don't own any or many of the magazines, you will love Martha's 2010 Halloween Handbook. It retailed for $10.95 but, once it is sold out in the stores, you might have to pay a bit more than that for it or, who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and snag a good deal.

Formatted more like a paperback book than a magazine although much the size of a standard magazine, it contains five chapters plus a chapter devoted to clip art and templates and a sources page. The chapters include:

  • CALLING ALL CREATURES: Dedicated to decorating for Halloween.
  • CASTING CHARACTERS: Dedicated to costumes including the instructions to become the sorceress that Martha is on the cover.
  • TEMPTING TRESPASSERS: Devoted to interesting ways to hand out treats.
  • SUMMONING PUMPKINS: A chapter of jack-o-lantern ideas and instructions.
  • SERVING UNSAVORIES : Food ideas to tempt a ghoul's cravings.

It seemed to take forever but at last it is here. The Martha Stewart Living October 2014 magazine.

This magazine is two sided with one side with ornate pumpkins and an owl representing the regular monthly issue and the other side with Martha looking stunning in blue marked, "A Special Section."

Within the covers of this issue, the stories you will find include seven new pumpkin-carving patterns, the trick to no-carve pumpkins as shown on the cover, cool paper crafts and Martha's Costume contest. The special section has 31 pages; the regular section, 137.

If you're after this issue, you need to get to the newstand now. My newstand only had two copies of the magazine! If you've missed it at your newstand or September has come and gone, you can find it on Amazon by clicking on the picture shown to the right of this text.

If you need a number of issues, you may do well by buying a magazine lot...shrewd bidding may nab you a LOT of spooky ideas in the form of a collection or lot as they are called on eBay of Halloween-themed magazines for just one price!

Halloween: The Best of Martha Stewart Living Book

Halloween: The Best of Martha Stewart Living

There are lots of great ideas in this Halloween book which was released in 2001. Be aware though that it is indeed 'the best of' stories that were printed previously in Martha Stewart Living's magazine. It makes a great starting point and, after you read it, you will likely want to own all of the magazines!

AMAZON CUSTOMER REVIEW:

"Being a HUGE Halloween fan, I would have never thought that Martha could have any good ideas for Halloween decorating. Her decorating ideas are always so cute and cheerful, right? How wrong I was! This book has wonderfully dark and gothic decorations that really capture the essence and magic of Halloween. Even the ideas for the kids are tasteful, without being overly cutesy. Add to this great ideas for seasonal food (who knew you could use pumpkin in so many different ways), excellent costume ideas, and party ideas, and you have a great 'grown-up' Halloween decorating guide!" ~~ Scott F. Messinger

      @anonymous: Hi, Jim Bob -- Ordinarily the new 2012 Halloween issue would have appeared in August, I think. All that I've heard is that there was a re-release of an older issue, which is probably what you have seen. I haven't heard anything else and I didn't know if a re-release meant no NEW issue. If anyone else passing by knows, we'd love to hear from you.

      When does the 2012 issue appear? There's a collection from past years on shelves now, but no new issue. Will there be one this year?

      Love hallowe'en ... some of the mags are good but some not so much. I'm mostly focused on costumes so the ones where she gets into the costume details are my favourites.

      Not that I aspire to the level of domesticity that Martha Stewart has achieved, but it's fun to look though her magazines and imagine for just a moment that I, too, could create those wonderful decorations. :-)

      I was going to say that my favorite of all the items on the lens was the Harvest chandelier... and then I saw the makeup, the jack-0-lanterns, the centerpiece ideas... and now I can't decide. I want every single one of them!!
