Halloween Spell Book {part 3}

L.O.V.E. how this book turned out for so many reasons!  Mainly because I was trying to use supplies I already had and didn't know exactly where I was going with it.  Now I have another Halloween prop to contribute to the Halloween Party!

Supplies you'll need:

Thrift Store Book * Brown Paper Bag * Mod Podge

What to do:

Add character to your book spine by adding layers of hot glue

  • Crinkle up the brown paper bag and tear it into pieces
  • Using Mod Podge, cover the book with the crinkled paper bag
  • Glue the front side of the magazine eye (or the flat side of the marble)
  • Attach the front side of the glued image to the flat side of the marble
  • Glue the marble eyes to the front of your book
  • Surround the marble eyes with crinkled brown paper bag to give them a more finished look
  • To create the bloody tears, drip layers of hot glue (blow on them to cool in between layers)
  • Paint the dried {hot} glue with red paint

  13. Found via pinterest thanks! Another idea found on pinterest... red crayon in the hot glue gun instead of glue to skip the painting step (although I haven't tried it.. would that leave red in the glue gun to ruin the next project??).

    1. What a great idea! Yeah, I'd want to try it on a spare gun for sure.
