When I was planning this year’s Halloween decor, I wanted to do something I haven’t done before. I didn’t want to do bats and skeletons or pumpkins. And with all the hype about the new Hocus Pocus movie, I decided to create witch-theme Halloween decor. But I wanted to keep it subtle and spooky. I’m so happy with how it turned out and it might be one of my favorite Halloween looks yet! (post contains affiliate links, see disclosure)
The black floating candles are the perfect backdrop. I used these battery-operated flameless candles and clear fishing wire to hang them. I already had some white push pins, but you can also use these Command Strip hooks. The candles are set to a timer and come on every night. They really set the vibe for all the scary movies we’ve been watching lately!
To create the antiqued mirror effect, I used black craft paint and a paper towel. I simply dabbed it on and kept it light. Later, It can easily be removed with a razor blade or mirror cleaner!
It’s no secret that I am somewhat of a minimalist but apparently, in Halloween witch mode I need all my trinkets and potions. I used a lot of what I had around the house or things I found at the thrift store. A bag of bones and Spanish moss is great for bowl filler with spiders and faux webs.
I love the color of this floral berry bundle and this black vase from Walmart is such a great price. I used Rub N Buff on the skulls and magnifying glass that I already had. And the cream vase was a thrift store find, that I painted with craft paint. The eye is a paperweight that I’ve had for years, I printed out this free eye drawing, cut it out, and glued it on. It’s the perfect reference to Hocus Pocus. I also created these DIY spell books using thrifted books and craft supplies I already had.
On the other side of the entryway, I hung a witches hat and a few brooms. Both the hats and brooms are from Amazon and I’ve linked a lot of Halloween decor in my storefront. This witch-theme Halloween decor was so much fun to create and now I’m all set for the new Hocus Pocus!
