The Witches Book of Spells

Last year, I got my craft on & made a book, but never shared it with you, so here goes. (Warning: I'm no crafting maven.)

I thought it would be fun to make a Book of Spells for Halloween. I bought one of those cardboard type books at Michaels. (or maybe it was Joanns?)


Then I painted it black & glittered it up because witches need to be glitzy sometimes you know. :)

Next, I made a title on my computer & printed it out. I took a candle & burned the edges to make it look old & worn. I adhered it to the book, along with a cute sticker & faster than you can say "abracadabra"--The Witches Book of Spells!


I added the black crow to make it extra spooky. I have to tell you that my hubby hates that bird! Heehee! It creeps him out. Scaredy cat!
(Oh I shouldn't tease him, it's his birthday today.)

This was fun & easy to make and I think it adds a little whimsy to my Halloween decorating. I think I'll link this up at Debbiedoos's fabulous Before & After Party. To check it out & join in on the fun, see here.

Happy Wednesday!
