Ok I know it’s only August 31st but who cares right? Since I’m home bound until further notice I figured why not start planning Halloween. Just so you know Halloween is my “Christmas”, like I plan in advance every year, have the biggest outdoor setups and just as much inside, I guess it helps my birthday is right before Halloween so it’s a month long party!!!
So today I am going to talk about how I created some amazing books out of old books I found at good will. Luckily I went to goodwill on Tuesday and found all yellow stickers were only a $$$$1$$$. I was able to find several that I could repurpose for my apothecary fixture in my house. Here is the step by step process of how I created my masterpiece!!!
After removing the cover, I took a glue gun and wrote on the spine “WITCHCRAFT”. I let the glue dry and applied black and metallic paint to make the print stand out.
I found the middle of the book and broke the spine in that location so that the book will stay open when I’m finished. I applied Mod Podge to the pages in the book. I applied the two spells I found online to those pages.
After applying the pages and doing the coffee concentrate on the page I also added it to all the edges to make the look 100%!! After applying to the edges it also helped the pages curl so it really added a dated look on the spell book.
And the final product……..
