Halloween: Whimsical Witch Legs

Striped stocking witch legs hang from the ceiling to make a whimsical centerpiece for my Witches Tea Party.  The black umbrella creates the look of the bottom of a witches dress with "crinoline" (fluffy underskirt) added to complete the look of a dress! It's impossible to make witch legs without adding the iconic black boots.  I love the look of the skinny, bumpy legs and large witches feet! Tutorial: how to make whimsical witch legs....

Stuff a pair of black and orange striped stockings with batting (it will be lumpy).

Draw the outline of witches boots onto black fabric (chalk is easy to draw on dark fabrics). Make sure to make the boots large - when stuffing and sewing they shrink in size.

To create the look of crinoline - I used black tulle. I cut pieces approximately 20 inches long.

I snapped off the umbrella handle - easy to do considering this is a dollar store umbrella. Tie the stockings onto the spokes of the umbrella.

Tie the tulle onto the umbrella spoke.

 This is the umbrella turned upside down with all the tulle tied onto the umbrella.
