DIY Pool Noodle Witch’s Legs
We’re kicking the Halloween decorations up a notch this year with these fun witch legs!
The kids get a kick out of these, trying to figure out where the rest of her went…
They WILL have a lot of fun making these… You can tell these aren’t Pinterest perfect, but when the kids have created something like this themselves, they enjoy it so much more!
You can have your witch’s legs landing in a pot, a cauldron, or a flower box.
She could even be stuck under your doormat or smashed into the front door.
Ours landed in the candy dish. I guess she’ll have to come out before the kids start coming to the door!
These legs could also be made in a smaller version and hung from a Halloween wreath.
How will you display YOUR Halloween witches legs?
They would look good alongside these other Halloween decorations, I’m sure!
Well, first you need to make them.
Why Use a Pool Noodle?
If you’ve read any of the other articles on our site, you may already know why we use pool noodles to make crafts.
Pool noodles are not recycle friendly in a landfill.
They take up space and are not easily degradable.
So we like to find ways to repurpose pool noodles into crafts, games and fun projects.
To help our planet, Mother Earth.
How to Make Pool Noodle Witch Legs Tutorial
Here are the instructions for making Halloween witch legs using pool noodles.
We start with the things you’ll need to have on hand.
2 pool noodles, 2.5 – 3″ around and long enough to look like legs.
Girls Halloween tights or leggings – We used some from Target that were pretty inexpensive. You could even find some at your local thrift store or GoodWill.
Polyfill stuffing – This is optional. We stuffed some of this into the top to make it look like our witch had a backside. You could use stuffing from an old pillow you might have around.
Felt for boots – We used purple for the boots and made a black buckle, but you can use whatever colors you choose.
We also made a version with some “witchy” looking black heels I had in my closet.
Black boots with a gold buckle looks great, too!
Hot Glue & Glue Gun
Boot template – This is not necessary if you’re good at cutting freehand. Since I’m not, I used this template from A Piece of Rainbow (thank you!). They used it to make paper witch legs, but by making it just a little larger, it worked great for this project, too.
Cut pool noodle to the appropriate length. You want one for each leg, and long enough to stick out a little at the bottom and top of your stockings or tights.
Cut out the boots using the template provided above, or make your own. I used the template, but made it a little larger for this project.
Attach felt for a buckle like you see in the photo, or add your own boot embellishments.
Attach the boots to the witch’s legs.
Stand the witch legs upside down in the container of your choice. You can use a plastic cauldron, a bucket, or a flowerpot.
You could even put the upper edge of your witch leg creation under your doormat to look like she was smashed.
If the legs are longer, or if you used real shoes, you may need to run a dowel or PVC pipe through the noodles so they aren’t so wobbly. Another option is to use solid, firmer noodles that aren’t too bendy.
Felt witches boots may need a little poof that you could get by adding some of the pillow stuffing. Just put a little down into the toes of the boots to make them more 3D and less flat.
I used black pool noodles because the yellow ones I started with showed around the boots and I didn’t like that look. However, you can use any color you like.
Are you ready?
