How to Make DIY Witch’s Spell Books

How can you turn your books into spooky Halloween classics? It’s so easy! First, download the free printable book cover templates then just cut to fit the books you have!

We designed each cover to fit a popular title that you just might have in your library:

  • Make a “Spells & Enchantments” book out of Eclipse from the Twilight Saga
  • Make a “Transfiguration” book out of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
  • Make a “Brews & Potions” book out of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Next, use the cutting guides on the template to trim off the top and bottom, or use your own book as a guide to trim the cover to the correct height.

Wrap the trimmed cover around your book tucking the ends inside. You’re done!

We purchased Dead Sea Salt online and found Epsom Salt in the pharmacy section of a local grocer.

To make the bath salts, combine all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and mix well. Pull out about a half cup of the dry mix and add the oils. Thoroughly mix in the oils then add back to the large bowl and blend together.

Pour bath salts into jars and finish by applying this free printable Dead Sea Bath Salt Labels.
