DIY Witches Shoes Halloween Crafts & Decorations

Disclaimer: “No witches were harmed in the making of these witches shoes Halloween crafts or decorations.” 🙂

This year I am making a bunch of super fun Halloween crafts and decorations with paper, because paper crafts are great for kids and the whole family, easy to make, and require no storage. Just recycle them and make some new ones next year! These witches shoes Halloween paper crafts are one of them.

They are a simplified version of those witches legs Halloween decorations. Each shoe / boot is made from one or two pieces of paper. You can download the free printable design at the end!

Witches boots and witches legs are so fascinating. I am going to share with you all the fun ways to use them in your own Halloween decorations from centerpiece to wreath, garland, and more!

These witches shoes Halloween paper crafts make me giddy imagining who they could belong to… Maybe the wicked witches from Wizard of OZ? Or some kind and fun-loving witches gone flying on their broom sticks…

Check out the video tutorial below, or skip to step by step written tutorial.

By the way, I did not come up with this original design idea! I saw it on a store shelf a few years ago and always wanted to make my own version of it. 🙂

Step 1: print template and cut paper

You can make any colored shoes. I chose black and red shoes, with green, orange, or purple stocking details. Let’s use the black witches boots as a step-by-step example.

Print the template at 100% size ( one is for 8.5×11 size paper, one is for 9×12 paper depending on which type of construction paper you have). Fold the construction paper in half, align the template with the middle fold as shown in video (at the beginning) and image below,  trace and cut.

Tear color paper stripe a little longer than the folded paper. Glue them to the black paper. These will look like striped stockings, so cute!

Step 2: glue witches shoes together

Now we are ready to glue the shoe together. Match up the tips of the shoe, and roll the stocking part into a cylinder and glue the ends together. Check out the video tutorial at the beginning if this sounds confusing!

Add a buckle to your witches boots for some extra flair. Witches have lots of style after all!  Now it gets even more exciting. We are going to create fun Halloween decorations with our witches shoes!

 

For a super cute witches legs Halloween table decoration centerpiece, tape a couple of witches boots to sticks and set them in a flower pot. Everyone will love it!

  1. So cute! I love the W of O. I had a bumper sticker at work that said “I haven’t been the same since that house fell on my sister.” People just didn’t know what to make of it–or me!

  2. Hi ananda, I have the 9 X 12 construction paper, but the witch’s boot template is printing out 4 5/8 in X 7 in. Above in the written instructions it implies there should be 2 templates for two different sizes of paper, but I’m only finding one in the downloads (I also looked to see if it might be 2 pages). The video also implies it should be 6 in X 9 in to cover half the sheet of construction paper. Can you help? Thanks!

    • hi beth, it’s printing at 8.5×5.5 here,maybe uncheck the “fit to page” when you print?
      for 9×12 you can trace it about 1/4″ around the outside, it doesn’t need to be super exact. happy crafting! 🙂

      • Thanks! I didn’t find a “fit to page”, but I did find a setting in advanced printer properties to print 120% of size, and it came out just right for the 9 X 12. My grandson is VERY excited to make these witches shoes, so happy we are all set to go now. We are going to make the cats and bats too. Thanks again for replying so quickly.
