I have been fun playing around and making some Halloween decorations. For the past several years, I haven't really done much to decorate for Halloween...or any other holiday either....really. This year I really wanted to decorate! I searched the Internet to find ideas and patterns. I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, but I did find pieces here and there. So, I borrowed some things and created my own.
I went to a few different fabric stores trying to find the fabric similar to what was in my head. I struggled. Finally I got a few yards of an orange polka-dot (go figure...me...polka-dot) and a grey/black fabric with swirls.
Here is what I created:
I've already shared the Witches Hat and pattern with you in this post here.
I found this great tutorial for smashed witches legs here. She was kind enough to include a pattern for some awesome witches boots. I used that boot pattern. However, I cut pieces of fabric for the legs instead of using tube socks. I ended up hand sewing the legs to the boots. I used orange tulle and some black fabric scraps for the dress. I sewed the legs and the skirts together then sewed binding to the top edge.
I have one last decoration to share. I've used this for several years. I had a very old Navy uniform from when my husband was enlisted. I stuff it with paper and add the Jack-O-Lantern head...it lights up.
I typed this together quickly...if you have questions please comment.
