Fall is the time for cool nights, leaves changing colors, pumpkins, and spooky Halloween decorations. Spice up your fall decor with these bewitching witch crafts.
Add some magic to your front door by creating a fanciful witch's hat. Buy an inexpensive witch's hat. Make sure the pointy tip is floppy so that it hangs down. It should not be stiff. Using hot glue, decorate around the brim with pumpkins and leaves, or for a spookier look, creepy crawlies. Hang the hat on the front door as you would a wreath.
A witch silhouette can be crafted by making a pattern in the shape of a witch from paper. Use the pattern to cut out the shape from plywood. Spray paint the plywood black. Pound rebar into the ground where you want the witch positioned, and then secure the plywood to the rebar using brackets. Adding a light behind the silhouette will add a haunting aura at night.
Carved pumpkins are a classic decoration for fall. Use either real pumpkins or the synthetic variety that you can bring out year after year. Pick a witch craft pattern that's just right for you from the many patterns available, or create your own.
A small pumpkin can also make a whimsical witch's head. Set the pumpkin on a stand, or even a tall can. Cover the base with black fabric for a witch's cape. The face can be carved, painted, or made from craft items. Add a hat and other personal touches to make a unique Halloween decoration for your home.
Filling a cauldron with treats is a simple way to add a little witchy flair to your fall dcor. For an edible witch, create one using the treats children love. Begin with a lollipop. Wrap a square, thin fruit snack around the stick to create a cape. Hair can be made from gummy worms with the ends snipped into three or four strips. A broom can be made from licorice using the same technique. Lastly, craft a hat from chocolate cookies. Use royal icing to hold the witch together.
