I put a spell on you, because your mine.” I am channeling my inner Winifred Sanderson today. You can thank me later if you won’t be able to get that song out of your head. Today’s post is a fun Halloween craft. I took a step back from crafting all those Disney Inspired Pumpkin Ideas and created this fun Halloween Spell Book. This Halloween project adds a spooky touch to your bewitching Halloween decor.

 


These spellbooks are my take on the infamous spellbook in Hocus Pocus. It is not a hard project, but there are a few steps involved. So, don’t be intimidated by that fact. These spell books are a great way to use up an old textbook or two that you no longer have use for. You can also hit up your local thrift shop to find used hardcover books to use as well.

Here is how you can make your own set of these books.
