DIY Witch’s Spell Book

DIY Witch’s Spell Book

Have you seen decorations like this and thought they were cool but over priced? Maybe You just want to make a cheap DIY version of one. If so, you’ve come to the right place.

What You’ll Need:

1 Large Dollar Tree book

1 Dollar Tree Spider decoration

Hot Glue Gun and Glue

1 Brown paper bag

Mod Podge

Paint Brushes

Brown and Black Paint

A bowl


How To:

If the book you have has a dust cover go ahead and remove it. Arrange the spider how you would like it on the book and hot glue it down.

While the spider dries, begin cutting or tearing the paper bag. Fill the bowl with a bit of water then add enough pieces of the bag to cover the spider. Using a paint brush, apply a thin layer of mod podge to the spider then begin placing the damp pieces of paper bag. Add pod modge on the top as needed.

When the spider is completely covered allow it to dry before continuing to add more pieces all over the book. When the book is completely covered, let it dry. After the book is dry, use the brown and black paint to give the book a more finished look. I used the black sparingly and to highlight the spider.

If desired, give the pages an older look by watering down some brown paint and brush the outside pages of the book.

Finally, display the book with with the rest of your Halloween decor.
