If the Broom Fits….Make a Wreath!

 
 I saw a witch wreath on Etsy.com not long ago that I fell in love with.  It was too pricey for me at $350.  So…a trip to Michael’s was in order.  I found just what I wanted to make the wreath…. the witch’s hat, a broom, flowers, and feathers, round ball ornaments…..but I knew I would have trouble finding legs for the witch.  I decided I could make legs.  I am not too artsy when it comes to sketching….but after sketching, a little sewing – and I had legs fit for the witch.  (The boots are my favorite.)   I think I did ok.  They turned out really cute!  I decided on the red and black color scheme…but orange and black would be adorable too.

Using a very large grapevine wreath, I attached the legs to the wreath with hot glue and pins.  A little skirt with black tulle was added next.  Once the legs and skirt were accomplished, I added a broom – after all, what’s a witch without a broom – right?  A witch hat with gray hair was the finishing touch to the witch!  

I added red and black feathers, red and black ribbon, pumpkins and black and white Christmas balls.  I topped it off with the black bird at the top left! 

I love the finished project and can’t believe I am actually finished it before the first day of October.   I am thinking maybe for Thanksgiving a turkey on a wreath would be cute….better get to working on those turkey legs!
