|In past years I have made life size witches using a dress form, but this year I took a different approach. I used a coat rack!|
(I have a simple tutorial later in this post)
|The dress I used on my coat rack was the one that Kyleigh wore last year for Halloween.|
|I did add a few touches of my own to her dress....|
|Here's a close up of my newspaper hat with the taller cone.....I just sat it on my base hat.|
|I gave my witch a glittery silver mask|
|I added matching clip on roses to the skirt|
|I tied a pretty pink scarf around my witches waist|
|I found her a pair of shoes in my closet, they aren't regular witch shoes, but it's all I had.|
|Ok....now to my short tutorial. |
I had a $7 auction coat rack. I loved the way someone married all this stuff together.
|I hung some net on the coat hooks.....the net is the kind you use to wrap around tree's to keep the birds from eating your fruit. |
I bought it at a yard sale for a couple of dollars.
|I hung Kyleigh's Halloween dress on the coat hooks....|
|I wanted the dress to be a little longer, so I pinned a couple of black can-can's to the bottom of the original dress. The can can's are also old Halloween costumes. |
In the third photo you can see how I just clipped the roses onto the skirt bottom.
