We're going to keep it simple in this blog post. There's only one thing you need to do to make any Halloween project—crafts, cross stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, quilt, knitting, crochet, weaving—the best it can be:

Use glow-in-the dark thread

It really is that simple. That's the secret to making a memorable, unique, fun and fabulous design that everyone will love.

You can use these ideas anywhere, whether you're cross stitching, needlepointing, anything.
