Grunt Labor is totally weirded out by my love for witches, ghosts and such. If I’m reading a book about any sort of spooky thing like that, I usually catch him rolling his eyes a time or two.
Luckily, he’s let me drag him through ghost tours in Savannah and Marie Laveau’s grave in New Orleans.
I have loved witches and ghosts ever since I can remember, even as a little kid. They’ve never scared me, only intrigued me.
This Halloween with my decorations, I really went for more authentic-like spooky decor, rather than cutesy stuff. I have a few cute things here and there, but I really upped the legit spooky factor this year – this spell book and potion vignette being one of those things…

P.S. I had a really bad lighting situation going on when I photographed this, so just overlook the graininess of some of these photos!
I took a little corner in our entryway and created this little Halloween nook. I bought “potion bottles” and then created the labels. I’m offering these labels as a free printable if you’re one of my email subscribers.
Why yes, that is real bat blood. Not Karo syrup mixed with red food coloring.
And powdered werewolf bone. It doesn’t taste like flour at all.
That monster mash….oh my. It tastes slightly familiar though – maybe water mixed with green food coloring?
The snake venom. Very syrupy…perhaps with a little yellow coloring.
And the grave dirt. Who knew we had a grave right in our front flower bed?
You can also snag the Spells, Enchantments and Curses book cover for free as an email subscriber as well.
A girl who loves witches and spells as much as I do, needs a proper spell book, right? 😉

Tips for Printing the Potion Labels
There are actually three more surprise potion labels included on the printable that I didn’t use on my potion bottles, so there ya go!
I suggest printing the labels out on a piece of card stock, then just cut out around the labels.
I used these bottles.
Tips for Printing the Spell Book Cover
The spell book cover is designed to be printed out on a piece of 8 1/2″ x 14″ legal size paper. Also, mine printed out lighter than what the design shows, so just be aware of that.
The trick to the spell book cover is finding a book that it best fits around. Cut the cover out after you print it, then grab a few books and see which one fits the cover best. The book I used still shows some of the front cover’s edges and didn’t wrap entirely around the back of the book, but that didn’t matter since it doesn’t show. To hold the cover in place, I just put tape on the back of the cover and taped it to the book.
Happy Spell Casting!
