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

Miniature Apothecary Cabinet

Halloween in the bedroom and the Gold Spider Canvas

***warning*** This post contains spiders. OK, they’re handmade and they’re gold, but I know how you Sammy-haters can be! Just so we’re clear, this isn’t a post about spiders and neither does it contain kinky horrors. Oh no. We’re not going down THAT route! Not today...

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...

Make your own Medieval Gothic Fairy Door

Fairy gardens are all the rage right now and I do enjoy the whimsy of a fairy door, but I can’t say I’m much of a fan of the cute, brightly coloured affairs you often see. This surprises you. I can tell. My idea of a fairy door is rather more Medieval Gothic in...

A Gothic Altered Bottle and its Victorian Altered Box

One of the best things about being a maker is people give you stuff for your projects. Take this Hunter Laing Old & Rare whisky box for example. It was gifted to me during a rather splendid single cask whisky tasting session. Oh, wait. When I say ‘gifted’… Perhaps...

Sometimes, you come across a DIY idea that’s so head-slappingly simple it doesn’t need a tutorial. This easy side table is one such DIY. Every summer, I sit in the garden and think, “I could really do with a side table for my tea/lunch/glasses/Kindle/wine/gin [insert...

Halloween doesn’t have to be creepy. In fact, I like a little chic with my celebrations. And what better than some white potion bottles to get the party started? It just so happens that a Love Potion is also a timely reminder of our special wedding anniversary. Was it...
