How I'm Making Witches for Halloween

I've seen so many cute witch wreaths....witch trees.....all kinds of Halloween witches.    

 At first,  I was just going to make a witch wreath,  then I got carried away and made several!

I created a witch display at the end of the hallway to the bedrooms,  baths and utility room with the witches that I made.

This is my witch wreath.....

I wish I had taken some before and during photo's but when I get busy with a project....I forget to....sorry!  

So, the next best thing is to take some close up photo's and try to explain what I did.    The first witch is made from a small neutral Christmas tree.    My supplies were a set of legs,  two yard sale cancan's is a size 4T and the other is smaller,   a cute witch hat,  and a pair of black gloves

I used large safety pins to "hang" the cancan from tree limbs.....

I also pinned the gloves to the cancan......

I put my three witches on a sofa table to make a cute Halloween display in the hall.   

The other two witches were a marriage of supplies that I had on hand.....

This one is made from a child's bust,  a cancan and of course a pretty witch hat.....

For this witch,    I slipped a yard sale dress over a round box and then set a wig head on the box.     Added the witch hat....easy peasy!

Here is another angle showing the wig head.  

   I tucked some rose sprays around my witches and added some roses to the chandy that hangs  over the display.

My display really adds a pop of color to the end of the hallway

Trick or Treat!
