Witch legs...Halloween decor

Yesterday, I hosted a Halloween high tea party for my quilt group. You can see it here. I wanted to give my house an extra tint by having a few witches visit...well, at least attempt a visit...wink...


To create a witch landing head first in your flower pot is a simple, inexpensive and fun Halloween decoration. You need two wooden dowels (I used a piece of leftover curtain pole), some ribbon and left and right witch's shoes printed twice. I first asked Jos to saw the pole in two pieces which I wrapped the ribbon down it to give a striped effect. Cut out the shoes and glue two right and two left shoes together leaving the ends open to slip over the wooden dowels. Stick them into a flower pot and enjoy the reactions of those who come to your door.


Happy Halloween!
Heidi

  5. Leuk gedaan...die 'heksenbeentjes' zo in die pot...grappig ziet dat er uit.
    Eigenlijk kennen we hier geen halloween, maar 'ze' (lees middenstand). Proberen het wel ' van de grond' te krijgen...Maar jij bent Amerikaanse natuurlijk...
