Another way to celebrate the spooky season is crafting a Halloween book. The book can enhance your creative skills, not only from the way you color through the book but also the function of the book itself. To make one, you, at least, have these materials and tools to complete the steps. You can get them in art supply stores.
Up next, you will need to follow these steps to make a Halloween book. But before that, make sure you have found the design of the book to minimize wasting the materials. You can reuse the supplies for other Halloween decor and might as well for other seasons. You still have time to decide whether you want to use the recycled materials or improve the quality. Remember, the primary rule of making art is to be careful with the tools and steps.
It depends on the occasion when you decide to make a Halloween book. Teens usually craft the book in art class during the school club or Halloween party preparation. There is a consequence if they don't make one outside of the art room; it can be messy since it is required to paint the book thoroughly and use special glue. The situation is inevitable when you do so at home. If you have an art studio, you can spare some time to complete one there, or on the porch for another option.
Most of the time, the Halloween book is used for a Halloween-themed roleplay, party, and school notebook. In the roleplay, there must be a witch and her cauldron. There, she may make a poisonous soup with a cast of spells that she wrote in the book or write a secret spell that has a monstrous effect. A lot of parties use a guestbook to record the contact of the guests, including school Halloween parties. It can also be the merchandise or grand prize for a winner.
If you want to have dept knowledge about Halloween traditions, reading a book can be the greatest way. Here are some books for you to read on this spooky day.

Spending your Halloween day alone doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. Many kinds of activities you can choose from on this spooky day, including making a scrapbook.
Gather the materials such as leftover newspaper with spooky cases, vintage spooky magazines, a wooden small skeleton, glue, vintage sticky notes, and dried flower. Make newspaper cutouts by only highlighting the spooky part.
It can be a criminal case, haunted house information, and many more. Place some vintage pictures from the magazine to make it creepier. Place the sticky notes as you wish.
Decorate it with dried flowers which you can dip into black paint to be scarier. If you need some additional decorations for your eerie scrapbook, you can go with scary stickers, apothecary vintage labels, and more.
It is better if you concept your scrapbook first, before moving to the executions.
