Victorian Cameos with a dark twist

The gallery wall in the OneandSeventy Dining Room has new additions. Do you see them? They may be small, but they are no less mighty! Not to mention, SO easy to make. My Victorian Cameos have a skullalicious dark twist and were inspired by frames I found languishing...

Creepy Crying Mask

When my Dressing Table mirror fell off the bedroom wall in the wee hours giving me a bloody heart attack, my first thought was “Great! I could just use 7 years' bad luck.” But as fate would have it luck was on my side, as it gave me a stylishly creeptacular mask idea....

DIY Taxidermy Butterfly Box

Last summer, I discovered several dead butterflies in an outside room. Tragically, they’d found their way in, but didn’t make it back out. Most were closed, but there was one that was still open and fully intact. I try not to think what a horrific death that must have...

DIY Crimes of Grindelwald Props

The arrival of March brings a great many things, like Pancake Day (yum), Ostara, and the return of British Summertime (Oh. Very. Yay!) But this year, March also brings us the UK DVD release of Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald. Well… who wouldn't be excited for...

Crystal Storage and Keepsake Box

Do you practice magic? I bet you do. After all, Magic is all around us. All of the time. Every single day. You don’t need to wait for Halloween to tap into its power, JK Rowling proved that. But as much as I adore Harry Potter I am constantly in awe of the real thing....

Dark Fairy Tales Book with free download

Are you a fan of fairy tales? I’m not talking fluffy unicorns here. On no. The true origins of fairy tales are often much darker and way more macabre than Disney would have you believe. I mean, who cuts off their toes to fit into a pair of shoes to attract a prince?...

Blingtastic Bauble: DIY Jewelled Christmas Ornament

Halloween may be my Christmas but for what seems like the rest of the world, Christmas is… well, at Christmas. And if you can’t have a bit of bling at Christmas, when can you? This jewelled Christmas ornament is most definitely blingtastic and I think it adds just the...

Easy Elder Futhark Runes

Elder Futhark Runes are the oldest of the runic alphabets, the writing system of the ancients. No witch worth her salt would be without a set of runes with which to code spells and foretell the future so naturally, I made my own. As you must be painfully aware by now,...

Giant Cauldron DIY

This giant cauldron project is a bit of a beast! But I promise... while it may look like a lot of work, it's actually very easy. It’s just the drying times that make it a bit long, so if you want to make one in time for this Halloween, you'll need to get...

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

This year, I’ve been stepping WAY out of my comfort zone and trying my hand at some larger Halloween decorations. I’ve made a giant cauldron complete with medieval oven (coming soon!) and of course, those Gothic Arch windows. But this… THIS was a project and a half!...
