How to make a magic spell book with a moving eye

Watch more with these video collections:

‘Tis the season for Wicked Makers! In this Halloween-themed video, hosts Jay Grenier and Jaimie Nakae-Grenier craft a magic spell book with an animated eye.

“We’ve always loved Winifred’s grimoire with its moving eyeball, so we decided to make an enchanted book of our own. Our book of shadows was made with a really easy technique using tissue paper and Mod Podge. The evil eye looks around as though it’s alive.”

Their finished book is movie magic. Create your own charismatic tome of sinister spells step-by-step with their demonstration, or reference their video and craft it with your original design ideas.

Supplies include: A large second-hand book that you’re willing to cut and paint, air dry clay, a 2.5″ cabochon (a domed piece of glass), the Mod Podge and tissue paper, acrylic paint, hot glue, and super glue.

Add a few small yet epic details to the book with craft wooden letters, a vintage book latch, vintage metal book corners, and 1″ twill tape.

Wicked Makers includes supply links in their video description, as well as a Patreon link where they provide smartphone eyeball video options for their patrons.
