Wood Witch Silhouettes



Feeling Witchy?
We couldn't pass up making some fun Wood Witch Silhouettes
after seeing the My Mind's Eye Halloween paper this year.
We had so much fun earlier this year making silhouettes for our kids- that
this project was a definite "to-do" on our Halloween craft list!
My Minds Eye's Haunted Paper Pad had all sorts of wicked silhouettes
and the witches were just calling out~cut me...cut me.....
(We found this MME 6x6 paper pack at Michael's Craft store.)  We had trouble finding it online.


After blowing the images up on the computer, they were traced and cut out of 3/4" MDF.
MDF is so great to cut detailed work out like this because it cuts like butter
and doesn't chip or splinter like pine wood does.  (Be sure to wear a good mask when cutting MDF!)

I found myself cackling out loud as each wart, each rotten tooth and crazy curves on the hats were cut.
These Witchy gals are creepy and fun!
The witches were then coated in a semi-gloss black spray paint,
making sure to sand lightly between coats for a smooth finish.
Then they were finished off with a quick alligator hook on the back for easy hanging.

I made a few of these up for the boutique secretly hoping they wouldn't sell so I could keep them all to myself...but it looks like I'll be out cutting some of these ladies again!


Aren't they so fun paired with these witch potion making ingredients? We found the bottles at Hobby Lobby, and the potion labels are from The Graphics Fairy.  She always has great Halloween graphics you can easily find and print!  

*If any of you don't want to give these witchy silhouettes a try on the scroll saw, I cut out extra.
