Let me first give credit where credit is due. I got this idea from a web page from Dave Lowe. See the link below.
His witch of course looks much better than mine, but I don’t think it turned out too bad.
Anyway here is my list of stuff I used
Black foam board $3 (1 large one or 2 medium ones)
Witches legs from Plow and hearth $15
Green swim noodle $1
Black cheesecloth type of fabric
Spray paint – the color you want to use to match the wall you will hang this on$14 I used the expensive kind but I suspect any kind will do
Small witch’s broom
Pieces of wood – I used ¼” x 1.5 x 12” long broken into pieces about 3-6 inches long (the more broken looking the better)
Step 1: cut your board
Cut an oval shape out of the foam board I made my about 20” x 28”
Use the extra leftovers to cut out angular irregular shapes. I set them around the edge of the oval until I had enough to cover the way I liked.
