Witch Legs Halloween Decor

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Witch Legs Halloween Decor - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
My favorite part of Halloween is all of the cute…not scary, Halloween decor! I love the vibrant oranges, greens, purples and black. I also love the fun and friendly spiders, pumpkins, ghosts, goblins and last but surely not least, the witches and their famous cackles. EeeeeeHeeeHee!

I hardly have any witch decor in my collection of Halloween decorations, so this year I wanted to add at least one piece that celebrates the brew makin’, spell casting, broom flyin’, divas of the spoooookiest holiday of the year. These cute witch legs are super easy to make and look incredible when you are all through. So grab your brooms and let’s get flying to our big black pots and brew us up some ribbon-riffic Halloween goodness!

All you need are a few supplies to create these lovely legs! Click on any of the product images above to be taken to the exact place you can purchase any of this awesome ribbon!

I used the bright and vibrant Neon Lime Chevron, Lace, Black Glimmer Tulle, Netting, Festive Fushcia with White Swiss Dots, 3 1/2″ Black Grosgrain, two Orange Pom Posy flowers and a fat quarter of fabric. You could also make her legs more of a striped look with one of our fun Halloween Ribbon Mixes. The one pictured below is Bewitched.

You will also need Heat n Bond and a frame (without the glass so her fluffy skirt can stand out from her legs!)

Let’s Get Started!

1. Iron your fabric.
2. Get a piece of the card board from inside your frame. This will help you measure your fabric piece.
3. Trim fabric.
4. Lay frame on top of fabric. This will help determine the size of your witch legs.

To make the skirt:
1. Fold the netting or tulle back and forth in your hand like you would fold a fan.
*I first made this decor piece with the netting; however, I changed to tulle because in the pictures, the netting wasn’t as vibrant as I was hoping! If you also use tulle, fold it just as you do the netting.
2. When done folding, your skirt should look like the bottom left picture above.
3. Tuck top of skirt (folded portion) in between frame and fabric piece. You can’t see it, but my cardboard piece is still behind my fabric to give me a hard surface to work on.

To make the legs:
1. Like I mentioned above, you could use a ribbon mix to give the witch legs a striped look. You can see what that would look like in the top left picture above. I chose to do a solid leg and went with the Neon Lime Chevron.
2. Following the directions on the packaging, iron ribbon to Heat n Bond.
3. Cut out ribbon.
4. Iron ribbon onto fabric.

To make ruffle cuff:
1. Cut a piece of lace approximately 7-8 inches long (depending on how ruffly you want your cuff to be).
2. Fold lace back and forth like a fan.
3. Place a thin line of hot glue where you want your cuff to be.
4. Carefully place lace on hot glue. You may have to add some additional hot glue to make lace lay how you want it to.

To make shoes:
1. Again using package instructions, iron 3 1/2″ black grosgrain onto Heat n Bond.
2. Turn ribbon over and free hand witch shoe. You could also print out a witch shoe and trace it onto the heat n bond.
3. Cut out shoes.

To adorn shoes:
1. Iron shoes on top of legs and lace cuff. The heat n bond will make it stick. You may need to apply pressure while ironing on top of the lace so the shoe will lay as flush as possible.
2. Add the Festive Fushica ribbon (or whatever ribbon you choose to adorn your shoe). I put a thin line of hot glue on the back of this ribbon piece to adhere it to the shoe.
3. Hot glue the pom posy flowers onto the shoe.
4. Waaaaa-Laaaaa! You are done! Great job!

    Good grief, Michelle… that is just the cutest Halloween decoration ever! You are a creative genius.: ) The best part about the framed piece is that it is so portable, unlike other decorations that are designed specifically for tabletops or front doors. It can go over a mantel or on a wall that the trick-or-treaters can see from the door. Wherever it goes, I can assure you that your children will look forward to unpacking the witches’ legs every Halloween! Thank you for sharing this adorable idea, which I will be pinning. xoxo

      “Witches’ legs”? Please ignore my incorrect use of a plural possessive. I was so excited about the project that one of the basic rules of grammar temporarily flew out of my brain (on a broom, of course!).

    Love this! What size frame did you use?

    • The Ribbon Retreat
      Posted October 2, 2014 at 8:18 am | Permalink

      Hi Trista! Thank you so much! The frame I used fits an 8×10 photo with a photo mat. However, I removed the photo mat so I could make my decor bigger. The inside of my frame measures just under a 10×13. I just used a frame I had at home and then made my witch legs fit the frame. I hope this helps! Thank you again Trista! Good luck with your witch legs decoration…it is so much fun to make! Have a great day! Michelle 🙂

    This is absolutely darling!!!! I want to make me one so bad!! Question??? Did you attach your fabric to anything? Like how is the white fabric hooked and staying in the frame? Hope my question makes sense! 🙂

      Hi Amy! Thank you so much! I am so glad you like this fun project! It is so easy to make! I would suggest attaching your fabric to the heavier piece of card stock/board that comes in the back of your frame just to make sure that your fabric stays where you want it. I didn’t attach mine to anything so I have had to open the back of the frame to tighten my fabric a couple of times. Thank you again Amy for stopping by and for your sweet comment! Have a great day! Michelle 🙂
