Hocus Pocus, lace up your boots, grab your broom, it’s time to fly! Whether you are throwing a Halloween party or just need cheap Halloween decorations, you can’t go wrong at the Dollar Tree. I was able to make DIY spell books and potion bottles super cheap. The best thing and the worst thing about the Dollar Tree is everything is CHEAP. Many times, you have to “hack” it, to make it into something nice. If you have been following me, you know that I like to do Dollar Tree Hacks. Last time, I took some orange foam pumpkins and turned them into expensive looking fall décor, check them out here.

This time, I needed cheap Halloween décor to look expensive. I was inspired by some faux spell books that I saw at Kirklands, but I didn’t want to pay the high price tag. So I made a quick trip to the Dollar Tree, picked up some chunky books, smoked wine glasses, decorative glass bottles, skulls, and eyeballs. Wow, that indeed, just made me sound really witchy.
I used spray paint that I already had and it worked perfect. To get that really matte black color, I used Rust-Oleum Universal All Surface Spray Paint Flat Black. The flat black was a perfect canvas for my White Glass Paint Marker. For the last bottle, I used one of my favorites, Krylon Looking Glass Silver. This is a favorite of mine because I love the look of mercury glass. If you lightly spray a mix of vinegar and water on an object, before you spray the Krylon, it gives the look of rustic mercury glass.
I spray painted the books, wine glasses and one of the bottles black, then wrote on them with my paint marker. You can be as creative as you want. This was another very simple DIY that takes little time and effort. I made a short video to show just how easy it is to build this witch’s brewery.
With Halloween around the corner, what kind of DIY will you be brewing up?
