Last week: Brooklyn's Maniac Pumpkin Carvers (currently in our Oct 2012 issue) joined us for the Living Backstory, and one of you (Hello, Monica from St. Louis!) called in and ask the guys about the types of tools they used for carving pumpkins. As promised, they sent in the annotated photo above.
This week: Crafts editor Jodi Levine is going to share ideas for easy, DIY costumes — many of which can be completed inexpensively. Jodi is an veteran of the MSL craft department, and she was kind enough to compile a thorough list of costume How-tos from us for people who are looking for DIY ideas. Personally, these kinds of crafts are my favorite — saving time and money while also making something memorable in the process.
