The Witch Is In

Did I mention how much I love Halloween? Well, I came across this on Pinterest (here is where it took me) and knew I had to recreate it myself. But I couldn't find pool noodles anywhere! And then luck would have it that a Dollar Store was going out of business (really???) and they had two pool noodles! Yeah me!
This decoration was really simple to put together and every time I look at it, it makes me laugh! The only thing I want to add to it is a sign that says "The Witch Is In"...then it would be perfect.
Supplies you need:
1 pool noodle (Dollar Store)
1 pair of long socks (Dollar Store)
1 Black Caldron (Target was the only place I found it)
1 bag of forest moss (Dollar Store)
heavy object, I used a brick
old black shoes
stick broom

I stuffed the foot part of the sock with newspaper and shoved a small dowel in there to keep it straight. Next put the pool noodle in the sock and put another dowel in the noodle (this keeps it standing straight up and adds support). Repeat with the other sock/noodle.
Then, for more stability (its really windy where I live and I knew I needed to have the most support possible) I stuck the noodles into a beer mug that were on either side on the bottom of the caldron. In the middle of the caldron, I placed a brick.

Next, fill it with more newspaper and top it off with the moss. Add the shoes and you're done. This project was just shy of $10 and I think its super cute!

Thanks for stopping in!
