We just added a much needed Witch's Spell Book to our Halloween decor. It was
It was a Reader's Digest hardcover that someone had made into a wedding, ahem, gift or prop? The pages were already curled and sealed; all I needed to do was remove the silk cord, paint it, and add the spells and ink.
Holy glue gun Batman! I needed a rest after finally getting that silk cord out of there. Painting it was a breeze by comparison.
I have a bit more blending to do on the pages, but we love the result. I decided on a Frog to Prince and All Purpose Potion and used 1/2" black elastic for the ribbon because that's what I had on hand. Total cost: $2.99; the landfill was saved and a bride somewhere was spared.
Just in case someone flips it over...
I have a plan to mix this in with our apothecary bottles. For now it can sit at the front entry. Macy thinks it should be on the kitchen counter -- must be the recipes. Oh, that's me in the photo a la chocolate frosting circa 1963 -- with a little Picnik Halloween action for good measure.
Thanks for peeking!
