How To Make these wicked witch legs: 

 

1. I first cut scrap chicken wire to the length of legs. Making sure to add extra for “knee bend”. I Then used scrap cardboard to create back section of the leg.

3. I then used newspaper and old phone book pages to paper mache around the legs and then left to dry overnight.

5. I cut a small scrap piece of wood to fit inside the shoe.

 

6.I then took the piece of wood, put it inside the foot part of the sock, put that into the shoe then pulled the sock onto the leg

 

7.I placed two pieces of scrap wood into the hedges and flipped the legs upside down onto the scrap wood stakes.

They provided sturdiness and allow the legs to stay upright in position instead of falling into the hedges.

    As far as I care, you are GREAT and would love to meet you and go to your classes.

    I was just curious are these waterproof? Did you put something on the paperbacks?

  9. I love these!! And, I’m pretty sure it is exactly what my front porch needs.

  10. These are really cute! This would be the perfect Saturday DIY for me and my girls 🙂

  11. Oh my word! I love these! Super cute. I’ll have to dig at the thrift store for some fun “witch” shoes 🙂

  12. Love these! So cute and clever!

  13. That is seriously cool. I’ve seen stuffed socks with shoes looking like it’s coming out from under a house- but upside down in the bushes?? Above and beyond. Bravo.

  14. I am not sure why, but since I was a little kid, I have never liked the Wizard of Oz. With that said, I absolutely love your witch legs! My husband puts out a life-like replica of himself sitting in a chair with a mask on. It always creeps out the kids because it looks so real. Well done!

  15. OMG….love this….one of my favorite movies too…so cute for Halloween

  16. These are so fun! Thanks for the tutorial!

  17. These look amazing! I just might have to try it 🙂

  18. They look so cute. I love them.

  19. Omg so cute. How long did it take? I must do this for my house.

      These took only a couple hours of actual work time. I did let the paper mache cure over night before putting them in the socks just to make sure they were fully dry first.
