Unfortunately, I can't seem to find the link I used for the instructions to make them. So I can't give proper props! If I find out where it is I'll add the link. Of course if you're a halloween vet you probably already have the link somewhere. :) But anyway, our local library has a wicked cheap sale twice a year so I got a couple books.



These two books already had some pretty neat stenciling on the front so I just painted them. First the maroon and green, then the silver and gold trim, then a wash of 1/2 black 1/2 water and daubbed off with damp paper towels. Very quick and easy. These next two was a little extra work but still very very simple.



These were larger books. But so amazingly easy. All I did was cut out corrogated cardboard and made edges, binding and stencils. The spider and bat stencil I just googled under pics.



I did the paint the same way I did the other. I created a title plate on the bottom. Printed out the name in a cool font, crumpled the paper and put it in tea then let it dry. Glued it on and that was it!

The books look great! And the wands look awesome with them. I remember seeing the tut for the wands but I can't find it. Anyone know where?

Can't wait to see more pics.
