I’ve been called many things, but so far I’ve never been called a witch!
My kids are still young, so there’s plenty of time for that. 😉
You might have seen something like this witch legs doormat floating around the internet. I think it’s hysterical! I love a little humor in decorating. I had all the supplies on hand, so I thought I’d give it a try! Our mailman even said that he thought it was awesome, and that he had never seen it before! Score.
It’s nice that it’s not frightening. I’m all for a good scare, but now that I have kiddos, especially one that is old enough to be afraid, I need to keep my decorations at a G rating…ok a PG rating.
This was a super easy and inexpensive Halloween project, which I’m ALL about!
I used a pair of my old black heels that I was going to get rid of anyway. You could always pick up a pair from goodwill, a thrift store, ask a friend, or find some cheap ones online!
I already had the black and white stripped socks from a previous Halloween costume. I also had a pair of orange and black striped stockings, but I went with the black and white socks. You could easily use a pair of stockings or tights as well. They don’t have to be striped, but that definitely says witch to me!
DETAILS to DIY the witch legs doormat:
1. Black heels (Use an old pair that you already have, try a thrift store, or click HERE to buy some really cheap black heels online!)
2. Striped socks (or stockings)
3. Plastic shopping bags (I think plastic bags work best because you can mold them into shape, but you can choose other fillers instead! )
4. Duct tape (Take a look at this Halloween duct tape! Too cute!)
5. Welcome mat
Fill the socks with plastic bags. Stop filling them with about 4 to 5 inches left from the top. This will leave room to duct tape the socks under the doormat.
Stuff your legs into the shoes. Try to mold the legs so that they bend at the place where the ankle would be.
(Optional) Place legs under the doormat and duct tape the unstuffed portion of the socks to the back of the doormat in order to secure the legs to the mat.
