i have been wanting to build a "Burnt at the stake" prop for a while now. but we are not yet fully decided to a theme for the party.

Looking for some ideas, props, food that may have a witchy or voodoo theme.

Appreciate any help, past builds, links!

Thanks in advance.

I think both themes go in hand as offmymeds said. ;)

The theme reminds me of American Horror Story Coven (season 3). I like the classy touch they have with the witches and coven in this series.

You could probably set an "Apothecary", like the one Cordelia has, as a drinks and booze station; could go with both themes.

BTW - Great witch shack!! offmymeds

Ohmigosh, yes, that totally reminds me of American Horror Story season 3!

Even when you think of the Salem Witch Trials, Tituba was the slave from Barbados accused of teaching voodoo to the girls in the village, so maybe you could do even a colonial theme. I dunno, just a thought :p

No, however, I think you could do it pretty easily. Take a post 8-10 ft high since you will need to account for part of it being buried and covered with sticks, stick it in a hole in the ground. Use sticks to line the bottom in a teepee 360 degree fashion. Take a skelly, cover it in sticky epoxy, let dry, repeat, until you have a desired texture to resemble charred remains stuck on the bone, then paint it black. Tie it to the stake, et voila! There was a really good tutorial on texturizing/aging skellies, and I can't for the life of me remember where it was...

I would love to hear your list of songs. There are quite a few witch songs out there. I have a big list (compiled by many) I will dig it out. Check out the Fortune Tellers thread. Somewhere in the recent pages there are many songs about witches and spells and fortune tellers, spells, etc. How are you going to play the music. This is my worst area. I just really don't know how to go about this. Someone recentl told me that I can get songs off of You Tube, so I have to look that up again and give it a try. I would love to have all this together on CDs.

Also what do you mean by "witch food"?
