How better to usher in the Halloween season than with a cackling, crooked-nosed woman stirring a cauldron with a pointy hat atop her head? Real Simple’s selection of witch-inspired do-it-yourself decorations features everyone’s favorite lady front and center in a variety of different scenarios. Interested in re-creating a scene straight out of The Wizard of Oz? A pair of striped witch legs placed underneath a pumpkin festooned with a clever quote will get the job done. For a Halloween-specific version of a candle in every window, a broom-riding witch in front of a shadowy “moon” light fixture is sure to elicit some fright of its own. Clipboards emblazoned with a sparkly cauldron, shiny gold lettering, and crinkled ribbon can be leaned against a large bowl of candy, while the simplicity of glittered ombre witch hats can also set the mood. Glow stick brooms are perfect as party favors—or as a substitute for a sugary treat. Finally, a clever “Halloween in a Jar” showcases the woman of the hour interacting with her skeleton friend in a creepy cemetery scenario.
