65" tall

***Info added Aug 29***

I used 3/8" ply wood for my Witches. I bought it at Home Depot for $9.98 for 4' by 8' sheet. I had them cut the sheet into 2 -65" pieces and still had wood left over for the cats I'll make. In the past I've only ever worked with a ban saw for cutting out my wood pieces.. My Witches are to large for that. My 15 year old neighbor (with the help of his Grandfather) cut out one Witch his Grandfather cut out the other. They used a jig saw. The Grandfather said my Witches were not hard to cut out.. I'd love to buy a jig saw (someday) and try cutting out this large stuff..

This is so cool, Mary! I love it! She would look great in front of our door this Halloween! By the way, you had written and asked for my b/day date--I wrote back, but I don't think you received it--it's April 13th! I'm catching up on my favorite blogs this week, as the summer has been so busy for me up until now. Have a great evening! ~Jann
