This week I knew I wanted to make a few more crafts with the Halloween items in my craft stash. Well one craft lead to another craft, which lead to an idea for my entire porch for Halloween.
I pulled out black cat, purple ribbon, a shiny purple witch broom (that really reflects sunlight!) and a wreath form. All of these items I had bought at the dollar store awhile back. I knew they would make a good wreath for the front door, and since they were dollar store items, it would be okay to be out in the elements without worry they would get ruined. I put the wreath together, and then hung it on the front door.
I then pulled out a paper mache witch hat that I recently bought at the craft store and painted it black. I used some of the leftover ribbon from my wreath and strips of tulle to decorate it.
I thought the witch hat would be a fun way to decorate a pumpkin if we do not end up carving all of them.
Then it hit me.. With the black cat wreath, and the witch pumpkin hat, I unintentionally had a theme going. I have many other witch items in my boxes of Halloween decor such as a large plastic cauldron, a few standing black cats, and a witch broom. I think even have some Wizard of Oz witch legs somewhere. I also have a 2-3 foot standing painted witch that painted many years ago in a tole painting class. This year for Halloween, I am going to do my entire porch in the witch theme. I don't like super scary, as I don't like to scare the little ones,so the witches won't be too wicked. I am pretty excited now as my easy Halloween Witch Crafts have started something much bigger.. Stay tuned..
