Halfway to Halloween
We're already halfway through the month to Halloween, and we couldn't be more excited! Each October day leading up to the 31st, we hide a riddle at the end of a Halloween gallery and ask you to post a picture of your answer to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #MarthasHalloweenHunt, or to upload your photo here. (For today's clue, visit the Halloween Hunt home page.) Without further ado, we've selected our favorite pictures from week two for you.
Congratulations to @kaybeeboo, you're this week's Halloween Hunt winner! Your artfully arranged candy corn and beautifully crafted cupcake toppers were a great way to kick off Halloween Hunt week three!

"My colors are orange, yellow, and white, and I'm a favorite on Halloween night. With no kernel, husk, or stalk to see, I’m often children’s favorite veggie."
If you guessed candy corn for October 13th, you're right! Way to go, @allyrants!

Light Up the Night
"With a mouthful of teeth (but don’t worry, I won’t bite!), I sit in dark places waiting to give you a fright. My big orange grin waits at your feet, greeting costumed children searching for treats." Way to guess it, @daisyjars!

It's squash season, but not all gourds were meant for carving. Butternuts like these were made to savor. Thanks, @sstassen22, for this beautiful stack of squash.
