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!

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.
2013 Martha Stewart Halloween Magazine
Martha Stewart Living October 2014 Magazine
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
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

Do you love Halloween? How about Martha's Halloween magazines?
Jennifer on August 26, 2020:
Brenda, would you know how I can get all the printed versions of the Halloween collections for Martha Stewart?

Awesome lens! Great Halloween ideas!

What an amazing collection you have compiled! I admire your dedication! Cheers~cb
Treasures By Brenda (author) from Canada on September 08, 2012:
@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.
anonymous on September 08, 2012:
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?
Radlyn LM on September 24, 2011:
I've never picked up a Martha Steward Halloween magazine but this year's cover really caught my eye! At first glance I thought it was Lady Gaga lol.
bassetmonkey on September 23, 2011:
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.
NaturalVamp on September 17, 2011:
I vividly remember the 2003 edition with those owl eyes. Thanks for the memories dahling.
momto4 lm on September 15, 2011:

I think my wife has a copy of each magazine. She's just a Martha fan.
BetsiGoutal1 on October 29, 2010:
The zombie Martha freaks me out so much! I don't know why, but it really does. She looks great as a vampire though - both times! :)
Mickie Gee on October 22, 2010:

Maurice Glaude from Mobile on September 28, 2010:
It took me a second to realize that was Martha in costume. Wow!
Marelisa on September 26, 2010:
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. :-)
anonymous on September 26, 2010:
People can say what they want about Martha, but she is definitely the queen of decor and decorating. And Brenda, your lens ain't too shabby either LOL Loved it! - Kathy
Kirsti A. Dyer from Northern California on September 26, 2010:
I love the covers when she is decorated herself. I hardly recognized her this year on the cover.m
enslavedbyfaeries on September 24, 2010:
This is simply brilliant!
anonymous on September 20, 2010:
Fantastic lens Brenda. You have done a wonderful job creating this.
Winter52 LM on September 10, 2010:
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!!
Virginia Allain from Central Florida on September 08, 2010:
I used to save all my decorating magazines. These look worthy of stocking on your shelf.
Tarra99 on September 08, 2010:
This year's Halloween addition I hardly recognized her...in the store I had to look twice...think I'm going to get myself a subscription for Christmas...I love Martha! Thanks for commenting on my Halloween lens...I always appreciate your comments Brenda!
WhiteOak50 on August 06, 2010:
Wow, I seen a few of those magazines I would like to have. I never knew she was into making Halloween fun. I guess its never too late to find out something new. Good Job, at first I was going to lensroll but I am going to feature it. :0)
anonymous on September 22, 2009:
Well love her or hate her, you just have to admire the empire that Martha has built and some of the Halloween ideas on her website actually inspired my own Halloween lens. Lensrolled and blessed for great lens idea!
Lou165 from Australia on September 19, 2009:
What a fantastic idea for a lens......Martha Stewart will be asking you to join her PR department soon :)

Awesome Halloween ideas for a "Redneck Martha" mom (as they tend to call me), thanks!
KimGiancaterino on September 17, 2009:
What a great collection. I have "Sunset" magazines going back at least 12 years, and I'm constantly referring to them. Boo-lessed by a Squid Angel.
Cheryl Kohan from England on September 15, 2009:
Martha is the Queen of Halloween, that's for sure! I've got a couple of these and I wouldn't part with them for anything. May just have to check out some of the others. Excellent resource.
LakeMom on September 13, 2009:
