Who is ready for some DIY Hocus Pocus crafts? The long-awaited sequel returns this seasons to eager fans like ME. I was recently asked to share some Hocus Pocus watch party ideas for one of our local TV shows and I jumped at the chance!
Okay, so last time we left off – 29 (gulp) years ago, The unsavory, but quite entertaining, Sanderson sisters had literally seen the light of day and exploded into magical luster, right in thin air.
It seemed all was well, but here we are, back to the black-flamed candle, ready to be lit. Not to mention, the spell book!
So many crafty opportunities, let’s dive right in!
Willy’s Candy Dish
From the trailer, it appears Willy is back for more mayhem. He’ll likely be hungry after all these years. Buy some zombie hands at Michaels and hot glue them to a candy dish.
Shimmery Apple Cider
If you are hosting a Hocus Pocus watch party, you want to have some class, right? So when you serve your goblets of apple cider, sprinkle on some edible luster dust (found in the baking section). Just a dash will do the trick! These look better after stirred.
For the glasses, you can find designs on Etsy to use for all your DIY Hocus Pocus crafts!
Winifred’s Life Potion
This is what the Sanderson Sister needed to stay alive, but alas they failed. So keep this recipe under wraps, just for your friends only! Actually it is just Gatorade in little glass bottles. So fun to serve at your party, right?
The actual recipe: Bringeth to a full rousing bubble, then add two drops oil of boil and a dead man’s toes. Next add a dab of newt saliva, dash of pox stir thrice. One final thing and all is done. Add a piece of thine tongue.
Start with a hardback journal. Use hot glue to outline the veins. Create three snakes from polymer clay, and buy some eyeballs from the dollar store. Glue the pieces in place and then add a layer of the plaster wrap. Let dry, paint, and embellish. Added painted designs over the veins.
Candies and popcorn
The craft store has a lot of “hocus pocus” decorations and I glued one of them to a wood box and used it to hold the popcorn bags. Sprinkle Tajin and lime on the popcorn for a spicy, tangy twist. It’s so yummy and fits perfectly with the Sanderson spirit!
Purchase affordable printables on Etsy and use them as candy labels. You can also add toothpicks and insert them into the tops of cupcakes.
Gummy snake apples
Find a black pail to resemble a cauldron and fill with juicy red apples. Then – top them with gummy snakes! It’s the best of both other worlds!
Sanderson Sister Shadow Boxes
These are sooo fun to make with the kids. Use peg people, yarn glitter and foam core for the hair shapes and assemble them in small wood boxes.

Sanderson Sister Pumpkin
Cut out silhouette shapes on permanent vinyl and add to the front of a large pumpkin. Use it as a centerpiece.
Pumpkin loaf cut-outs
Take a Halloween cookie cutter to some pumpkin bread to create Hocus Pocus-shaped treats!
Binx Favor Box
We all adore little Binx, right? Take a cat wood-cut out and hot glue to a small box. Add a quote of his, and varnish. Fill with candies or other small toys.
Have fun no matter what you make for your Hocus Pocus Watch party! Visit the dollar craft store for ideas and supplies. Even your own stash!
