Introduction: Flying Witches
Halloween decorating is really fun, you have a chance to make your house look colorful and funny. And if you use homemade decor, that´ll be even more fun. Today I´ll teach you how to make a cute and funky decoration for Halloween.
You can use leftover materials from other projects and upcycle other decorations, so it´s also budget friendly.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Black pipe cleaners
Green spray paint
Christmas tree ornaments
Step 2: Make the Nose
Begin by shaping a glue stick with the scissors. Make one side pointy. Then cut it.
Glue it to the Cristmas ornament.
Step 3: Prepare the Ornament
Remove the top piece of the Christmas onament and insert the skewer on that hole. If the skewer is way smaller add a little bit of tape to make it fit better. You don´t want it to wiggle.
Step 4: Paint
Use the green spray paint to cover the ornament. You might need more than one coat.
Step 5: Draw
Use the black permanent marker to draw a face. Draw different faces on each witch, after all they have different personalities.
Step 6: Glue the Hair
Glue the mop strings using your glue gun. Do not glue hair to the very top, where the hat will be.
Step 7: Make the Hat
Wrap a pipe cleaner around your finger, then make the last spirals smaller. Glue it to the top of the head.
Cut a rectangle of black felt to glue it on top of the pipe cleaner.
Step 8: Add Lace
Cut strings of lace to cover the hat and make the brim of the hat.
Also glue a little piece at the neck.
Step 9: Hang It Up
Attach strings to the top of the hats to hang them up. Let them fly!
