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.

2.I made my own modpodge glue with the below  recipe.

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

4. I also spray painted a pair of shoes I rescued from a church rummage sale

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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

    1. 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.
