Special shout-out to NTVTWT.com’s favorite OHF (official Halloween Fanatic) @NANxox2_WOKE for helping me find so many great Halloween treats!
Finally, instead of the regular Native Arts term we usually end with I thought a tutorial from @ChelseyMooner might be a nice treat for this special month-long edition, so if you’re feeling inspired by all these beautiful colors and designs you can try your hand at making a ribbon skirt to match those new earrings you’re about to grab!
