Mid-October means that it’s time to be very seriously planning and working on all the Halloween decor that will be so needed in just a couple of weeks.
Among all the blacks and oranges, our Crew member Kimberly opted for a slightly brighter option with the canvas background. She made a Witch-themed bag and an awesome Trick Or Treat banner that will look amazing on your entrance door.
- take a witch boot template and a folded in half black canvas sheet – trace the design using a white pencil. Carefully cut around the template leaving the boots hocked together.
- Attach the boots to your bag using fabric glue.
- Rip various width strips of ticking and make your skirt building layers with the canvas garland and ticking strips. Make a bow to decorate the centre.
Your witch bag is done!
Witch shield banner
first your going to need to iron your banner, then take your sheet of canvas and your boot template and trace it onto the canvas using a white pencil then cut them out. next embellish your boots with your stash add a buckle from the ticking by cutting out a square then cutting out the center next paint it using glimmer glaze latte let dry then add to your boot … tie a bow using your jute then add to the boot ., your boots are ready to add to the banner after you embellish and glue the legs to the back side of the boots … you might want to take all your pieces and play around some placing them different ways before you glue them down ..then when you see what way you like best start gluing it all down… have fun making your witchy banner..
Materials Kimberly used for the witch banner:
Canvas Corp: 2 black burlap flowers, jute, 12×12 canvas sheet in black, canvas banner shield 18×27, ticking fabric (black and orange)
Tattered Angels: Glimmer Glaze in Latte, Baseboard Mist in Cardboard
lace, thick jute rope
Trace boots template using a white pencil onto the black canvas sheet then cut them out.
Embellish your boots with pieces of the feather boa and a buckle.
Cut out a square piece from the black ticking then fold,and cut out a square center; paint with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Latte to make it look like a distressed buckle.
Take your black ticking and cut a strip as wide as you want your skirt to be, then place it where you want the skirt to be and hot glue it down. Then place the legs coming out from under the skirt (you cut the legs out from orange ticking; approx. 2″ wide each) then add boots to each leg.
You can slightly spray the legs using Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist in Cardboard – this makes them look more distressed.
Take a rod and insert it into the banner (I used a curtain rod extender ). Once the banner is securely stretched on the rod, tear strips of your ticking fabric, tie them onto the rod together with pieces of jute rope and add burlap flowers to the ends.
