I am going to be doing a tablescape in my kitchen this weekend using my witch plates so I was wanting some witch shoes to use for the centerpiece. Since I was having a hard time finding some that where cheap enough I decided to make my own. You can make these yourself also.
All you need is a pair of shoes, some duct tape some cardboard and some packing paper. I purchased a pair of shoes at Goodwill that I thought would work. I got lucky that they had a buckle on them already.
I started by bunching up some of the packing paper into the shape I wanted and taping it to the toe of the shoe.
I then added more tape to the toe of the shoe.
Next I cut out the shape on the cardboard that I wanted to use and taped it to the back of the shoe.
I added more tape to cover the cardboard.
The last steps I did was painting the entire shoe with some of my black craft paint. I painted the strap for the buckle orange, added black dots to it and then added orange dots to the back of the shoe. I also used purple glitter to the toe area. I am thinking about adding another element on the glitter area. I fell it still needs something more.
Be sure to check back and see how they look with my tablescape this weekend.
