~Boo Witch door greeter stockings~

I came across Witch stocking
on Etsy or eBay
they were not in my budget to buy
so I made my own...
I cut out 6 stocking using medium cotton fabric
used sewing machine to put them together
stuffed insides 3/4 way up with polyfil
the rest with newspaper
I painted 3 coats of white paint on stockings
last coat of paint (#4) I used the orange & black
stenciled on B O O
then antiqued them
added fake cat tails
hot glued moss on top
and moss on the front to look like buttons
sewed 3 rusty bells to the toes
antiqued 3 battery tea lights
and hot glued them between
the inside edge stocking & moss
nailed stockings on wood branch
added a black cord to hang
Now I have a Halloween door greeter
decoration for my Studio door
Give it a try
it's an easy project!
