Minis inspired by Some of Our Favourite Films








A while ago I made a Hocus Pocus Spell book. Inspired by that brilliant Disney film, ( dont you just love Bette midler ! ) I made all of the spell pages and then a leather bound book cover with roving eye and the stitched skin effect. The clasp was a skeletons hand .
This year Im going to go one step further and make the book cover in fimo so it will be easier to make the skin effect, the eye and snake detailing, and will endeavour to make the bookstand as well.

Then next on the list will be the spell book from 'Practical Magic' ooooh i love that film too!

Here's thre practical Magic table I made last year.

Good taste Kat!!! Love any films like this. We were all glued to Nanny Mc Phee last night on tv, John loves that film. I just love the house in 'Practical magic', oh to live somewhere like that with a huge kitchen and conservatory full of spell ingredients.
Hocus Pocus will give you loads of ideas for witchy minis!The candleabras and cauldrons are to die for :-)
