Witch's Spell Books {part 1}




I went to Savers the other day and scanned their "wall-o-stuff-in baggies" and came across this glorious set of 3 wooden books (the largest of the three is 6" x 4") for only $2.99!



I painted the books with 2 layers of black acrylic paint.

I found these foil embossed stickers at the Dollar Store (painted them black). They were exactly what the books needed!

Scrapbook sticker letters were used to spell out the book titles.

Googly crafty eyes fit perfectly in the center of the dollar store stickers!
Picnik.com was used to spookify the picture

  54. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
