Many years ago, probably at least 9 years, I made a Witch’s bottom wreath. I didn’t make a tutorial and I’ve always kicked myself over it. Have you ever made a project and then wished you’d taken pictures of the process? Every year I would look for that wreath and couldn’t find it. This year we opened every box and I finally found it.

Here’s the OG. The legs were Dollar Tree socks and I cut the boots out of black fabric and stuffed them.

This year’s wreath, started with a green wreath form from Dollar Tree. I spray painted it gold.

I used two types of tulle.

To cut a lot of tulle at once, I wrapped it around a piece of cardboard half my desired length.

Cut it at the bottom.

To wrap around the wreath form, make an upside down U, with wreath form on top, bring tails through U shape.

I alternated my tulle as I worked my way around.

This was the longest part of the project.

Mine looked like this once I was done.

Dollar Tree sold these witches legs this year. I cut off the ring at the top and filled them with rice. Save the ring because it makes a perfect hanger for your wreath.

I used the cardboard tube from the tulle as a funnel for the rice to go into the legs. It was the perfect size.

The bottom was a styrofoam plate, an old craft project pillow and a circle of fabric.

I hot glued the fabric to the plate sandwiching the pillow in between.

You want to sandwich the legs in between the wreath and the styrofoam plate.

I used hot glue to put the three things together.

Goodness! This picture is cringe-worthy but I think it explains how it will look.

You could call it done at this point but I found some bats at the Dollar Tree and had to add them.

One more before adding the bats.

It’s fricken’ bats! I love Halloween! IYKYK

Here she is complete.

The old one on the door first…

And now the new one. Which is your favorite? Should I add arms and a hat or leave it as is?
