Looking for Hocus Pocus Crafts and Decorations?

If you are looking for more specifically Hocus Pocus Crafts (vs “just” Witch Crafts and Witch decorations), DO keep reading. Though not all the crafts are specifically Hocus Pocus themed witches, they CAN easily be adapated. To make a “regular” witch a Hocus Pocus witch.. all you need to do, is

  • THREE: Make a set of three witches – Winifred, Mary, Sarah
  • Hocus Pocus HAIR: Make sure each witch has different colored hair, you will need – poofy orange, long yellow/ blond and pointy dark brown/ purple hair. But to be honest, just going for orange, yellow and brown will do
  • Hocus Pocus OUTFITS: Taylor your witch’s outfit to match each Hocus Pocus Witch! So.. go for yellow and purple/ pink, orange and green and dark brown/ purple and brown/ red!


  • Winifred: Poofy Orange Hair & Green Robes
  • Mary: Pointy Dark Brown/ Black/ Purple & Brown/Red Robes
  • Sarah: Long Yellow & Purple/ Pink Robes
  • No hats!

And hey presto.. your “ordinary” witch is now a Hocus Pocus witch. Simples.

On to our DIY Witch Craft collection.

combine the witch costume

DIY Witch Costume that doesn’t cost a lot

A super thrifty way to make yourself a Halloween Witch Costume, is to use bin liners! Really no purchases necessary to make this outfit! Simply have a good ol’ rummage at home to see what supplies you have to hand. We used some ribbons (for the band around the waste) and trash bags to make this fabulous DIY.

How to make a Witch Broom Decoration for Halloween

Or why not make one (as they are so fun) and use it as some Halloween decoration for your porch? Here is fantastic tutorial for you to check out!

DIY Squashed Witch Legs for the Little Free Library

Easy Squashed Witch DIY Halloween Decor

Squashed Witches are so fun and so easy to make and are one of my favourite Halloween ideas to make with the kiddos! I used an old tutu of my daughters, some stripy socks (they aren’t even stockings/ tights). Stuffed them with stuffing from and old pillow and had aneighbour donate some ruined shoes! And done. I chose to squash our witch under our little free library.. but anything goes. You can pop her under a pumpkin pile, or a door mat on your front porch. Easy!!!

Witch Accessories

All witches need some accessories.. right? So I wanted to have a short section dedicated to witch accessories that you may want to wear with a witch’s costume or to add to any finishing touches for your witch decorations/ witch homes. These would include:

Make DIY Witches Wands

DIY Wands for Witches – every witch needs a wand, surely? And these “personalised wands” are just the thing. Love the addition of nature finds! So cute!

Some Spider Accessory Crafts

Similarly, my daughter made some of these spiders a while back (all you need to do is cut circles and know to sew a running stitch) and they made GREAT additions to her Witch’s hat! Maybe even have a go at making a witch broom too! Or once you have your basic Witches Outfit… you can accessorize it as much as you like! Leave it plain… add funky jewelry or sew your self a bright and colourful spider brooch?

Whatever you do, also make sure you have lots and lots of candles as part of your witch themed Halloween decorations this year!! You can go with the traditional white church candles, but black candles, purples and greens would look cool too!

Witch Themed Halloween Treats and Snacks

Well any self respecting collection of Halloween activities of course needs some snacks! So here are our witch snack ideas.

Witches Fingers

Yummy Witches Fingers Party Food

Halloween Party Food – we made ourselves a little Halloween Tea Party a few years back.. and as part of this made a set of Shortbread Witch Fingers! These Halloween cookies were SO FUN and easy to make.. and of course very tasty too! We saved some to share in our “Boo Your Neighbours” packages too.

Witchs Finger Mold for Chocolates and Candy

I am dying to give these chocoloate finger molds a go – spotted them over on Etsy (affiliate links added – these cost you nothing, but would pay me a small commision should you choose to purchase through this link!). I think they would be great fun to add as cupcake toppers!

I think that that is it from us for now! Though we will of course be adding more fabulous Witch Crafts for Kiddos over time. You can never have too many fun Halloween ideas, right?
