Back in August when my sister and niece came to visit, we went thrifting and I found this glass boot:
It was $5. I thought it would be fun to try making it a stylish witch boot for Halloween like I did with this more traditional looking witch boot and this one.
I went to Michael's and picked up some supplies:
The boot was hollow so I also bought a Styrofoam block that I cut in half and shoved down inside to hold the flowers in place. Luckily, all Halloween florals were 60% off and decorations were 40% so I went a little overboard :) The witch hands were a must. I wasn't sure how I would use them but they were inexpensive and just so cool! Plus, they reminded me of the hands I used to decorate the witches table from last year so they got tossed in the cart! After a lot of snipping and bending and fussing, I came up with this:
I thought it was finished but... the more I looked at it, the more I thought it looked like those hands were conjuring! LOL! So, I set out to find something magical to float between them. Like this:
Cool, during the day. But as the sun sets...
Hocus Pocus! A magical spell is brewing!
In the dark, the orb bathes the table in a purpley light that of course I can't get a good picture of - darn it! It looks pretty awesome.
The orb is a "starsphere" from Save on Crafts. But let's just pretend it's magic.
Have a great week!
