Crashing Witch Decoration DIY

Ok I am going to do the best I can to explain this one, cause I kinda made it up as I went, but it came out so cute I had to share. This adorable decoration is rather easy to make and everything I used I either got at the dollar store or is something I recycled. It may look like alot of stuff but look around your house for items you can use I ended up only spending $2 (on the straw for broom and the black cloth) everything else was stuff I recycled.

What you need 

  • Stocking of some sort (I used a pair I got for a $1 a while back that I ripped)
  • Newspaper
  • a fake broom (or make your own with the straw brush stuff they sell at the dollar store and some fabric like I did)
  • a pot (I used one that was from a plant we got from lows you could also use a cauldron)
  • black cloth (right now you can get cool net like black cloth in the halloween section at most dollar stores)
  • card board
  • newspaper
  • Hot glue gun and hot glue
  • crayons
  • scissors

 

Directions

  1. If you are making your broom do so by taking the straw and slowly wrapping strips of fabric around one end hot gluing them into place. If you are just buying a little straw broom skip this step.
  2. Stuff your stockings full of newspaper, how stuffed and how long they are is up to you.
  3. Tie off your stockings where you what the length to end make sure to make them a little longer than the length you want showing.
  4. crumple up more newspaper and fill your pot until it is filled enough that your legs sit in it with the amount you want showing showing.
  5. Hot glue the broom between the legs (this helps support the legs)
  6. hot glue the legs and broom to one side of the pot
  7. put more crumpled news paper around the legs to fill in the gap
  8. drape the black cloth over the newspaper and around the legs this gives a dirt or skirt affect
  9. using the cardboard, crayons, and scissors make an RIP sign
  10. Glue it to the legs and move the fabric around it so it all fits in nicely
  11. fluff your broom a little and enjoy!
