Witch House beginnings

Well, we’ve finally gotten a start on our┬áthe Witch House portion of our Halloween display, from which my wife will be handing out the candy to the Trick-Or-Treaters. While there is still a lot left to do, we have made some pretty good progress this past week. Here’s a peek at some of the props so far.

This cabinet was made from a cheap bookshelf we had purchased from Wal-Mart several years ago for my sons' bedroom. They no longer needed it, so it was given a face-lift and re-purposed for the Witch House.
This shelf unit was made from old planks that used to make up a ramp to the back door of our garage. Last years landscaping projects rendered the ramp unneccessary, but I had kept the planks just in case.
One of our Witch Lantern jars, and a small plaque I made for my wife bearing the short version of the Wiccan Rede.
Last years prisoner skelly took a beating during storage, so he was disassembled and repurposed as lunch. The Cauldron is one of last years projects.
After about 2 hours, my son and I got most of the wall covering up. The witch's pet crow sits in an old boxy bird cage for now. With any luck, we might be able to find a more appropriate style cage before Halloween.

  1. This is a great idea. I was looking for something to do outside as I feel that my inside decorations are seldom seen unless I throw a party. So did you do this in the garage?

    1. This was done in an enclosed sun porch that sits off to the side of our front entryway. All of the windows save 3 had to be covered with the scene setters castle wall.
