Make This Clever Garden Witch

Delight your friends and family with this bewitching garden display sure to bring a smile to fall visitors' faces.

Gather Your Supplies

For this craft you will need: one pair of striped stockings/ pine shavings/ 2 garden stakes/ witch shoes/ and assorted mums.

Getting Started

Gather the pine shavings, stockings and shoes. Create a work space on a tarp to keep things from getting too messy.

Stuff the Legs

Begin at the stocking's toes. With one leg first, stuff the toes and then the leg with pine shavings.

Firm Them Up

Be sure to pack the pine shavings into the foot and leg of the stocking. This helps to give the legs their shape. Enlist a helper to hold the legs as they grow to help with the stuffing.

Finish Stuffing

Now move onto the second witch's leg. Starting at the toes, fill the leg and foot with packed pine shavings.

Add Supports

Next, take a 3 foot long garden stake and gently ease it down the center of one stocking leg until it reaches the foot.

Supports to Stand On

Repeat the same process with the second garden stake in the second leg.

"Plant" Your Legs

Tuck the top of the stockings back into themselves with the garden stakes sticking out a few inches. Then invert the legs and stick them into the garden.

Add Mums

Next, plant assorted mums around the witch's legs to conceal the base and add a pretty fall flourish.

Add Witch Shoes

Gently tuck the foot of the stocking into the shoes. You make have to shape the toes a bit to get the shoes to fit.

Adjust the Feet

Place the other shoe on the other foot using the same technique. Make any final adjustments as to how the feet are positioned.

The Witch Is In

The garden witch is now ready to delight your fall visitors and this year's trick or treaters.
