IKEA Hack – Make your own Skull Floor Lamp

Everyone’s seen IKEA’s floor uplighter, right? It’s been around forever, lighting up dark corners in practically every home across the land. For a fiver, who can blame us? But it doesn’t exactly scream Halloween, does it? So I went to work making something far more...

DIY Fortune Teller Booth

DIY Creepy Gothic Arch Windows

One of my main projects for Halloween 2018 was to tackle a big wall in the OneandSeventy hallway. Right now as you enter through the front door, you’re greeted by three pieces of handmade artwork (you can see them in this post) that last year, I Halloweenified with...

Miniature Apothecary Cabinet

What witch doesn’t love an apothecary cabinet? My Halloween Pinterest board has a fair few apothecary ideas, from cabinets, to books, to full-on shelves. Every one of them is chock full of potions, herbs and all manner of natural (and unnatural!) elements. After...

Lammas Pumpkin Toast and Bat Butter

Harry Potter and the Gryffindor Patch

Halloween is all about magic and Harry Potter is arguably the most famous magical reference this side of Salem. So with the summer holidays upon us and 6 LONG weeks to fill, you might be planning an early Halloween fix at London's Warner Bros. Studios. If you’re a fan...

It’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus

Source Beloved and I aren’t the only ones celebrating a silver anniversary this year. On July 16th, Hocus Pocus will be 25 years old. Can you believe that? OK, it’s not quite the 300th anniversary (325th if we’re being picky) of the Sanderson Sisters' demise and...
