Halloween Witch Re-Model

Halloween is coming and I am so excited! This year we are having our first annual Halloween Costume party and I am really looking forward to it. Of course, that means I get to go crazy decorating the house for the party!!! Last year I found this super cool witch at TJ Maxx. She was perfect last year because I had a mantel to sit her on.

As you can see, she is made for sitting on a shelf or mantel. Well, I didn't have any good shelves or a mantel for her. I wasn't sure where to put her, but I knew I had to find a place for her. I mean look at that face?!

So I sat her on top of these boxes. And then a light bulb went on and I thought..."What if I make her a skirt to cover the boxes and then she would look like she was standing up?"

These boxes are being recycled from a previous project that I created for the Cricut Circle Blog.

This was the perfect solution! All I needed to do was sew her a skirt. I dug through my fabric stash, found some black and silver fabric and did just that. I even recycled the black lace along the edge of her skirt. Here she is after her re-model!

She now stands proudly on the buffet in my dining room and keeps watch over the spiders in the jar next to her! ;)
