Salem Witch Bone Jar Decoration

The Salem Witch Trials, 1692

The seeds of the hysteria that afflicted Salem Village, Massachusetts were sown in January 1692 when a group of young girls began to display bizarre behavior. The tight-knit community was at a loss to explain the convulsive seizures, blasphemous screaming, and trance-like states that afflicted the youngsters. The physicians called in to examine the girls could find no natural cause of the disturbing behavior. If the source of the affliction was not attributable to a physical malady, the community reasoned that it must be the work of Satan. Witches had invaded Salem. (source and more reading)

Did you spot our Salem Witch Bones Jar in our
 Share the Love Spell Book Cover post? 
To all those  women witches of the past, we salute you.

To make your own Witch Bone Jars you will need:

Jars with lids {found ours at Target in Dollar section}

Halloween bones {found our in the party favor Halloween section of Party City}

Gravel or dirt or we opened up a couple tea bags to put on the bottom of the jar

Label (we made ours using PicMonkey or you could search on line for a free label printable and fill it in yourself

Double stick tape


Make or print off jar label. Add dirt or gravel to jar.
Add bones and stick on label. Give the jar a shake to get some dirt or gravel on the bones to look spooky.

TIP: To make our label look aged, we used water downed black paint and painted over the label, allow to dry and apply.

Have a fun time making up some Salem Witch Bone Jars to add a little interest to your Halloween decor!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6
