Witchy Wreath








































 We know it's a little late to be making a Halloween wreath,
 but we came across some witch socks and shoes that inspired us!


We used almost every part of the socks to create the witch's long legs...
We were also inspired by the sock wreaths made by Blue Cricket Design
What a clever way to add whimsy to a wreath and SO easy!
We wanted a large wreath, so we cut and later glued a straw wreath. 
 The wreath is around 20 inches.
We cut two socks, using the long parts of the sock for the wreath.
We wrapped the two socks around the wreath, and glued the ends of the wreath. 
For the legs, we spliced one of the leftover feet. Then we sewed them into tubes and filled them with stuffing.  Next, we attached them to the stuffed boots. 
We just love long witch feet!  We wrapped the bottom with a feather boa and added black tulle to create a skirt. We made the hat out of paper and glued on green Styrofoam beads. We found the broom at Hobby Lobby, along with most everything else.
We had a hard time passing by those stuffed witch shoes in Hobby Lobby...
by the way she's riding her broom "side-saddle"-they didn't come in pairs! :)

Nicole is having a witch themed party tomorrow for her daughter's birthday.
She has put together some cute things, we will be back soon to share!
