Witch Door Hanger (with Dollar Tree Legs!)
Who’s ready for a cute witch door hanger for Halloween? This one was so fun to make – check out this quick tutorial! And don’t forget about my recent blog post with more of my favorite Halloween Door Hangers. There are some for autumn and fall home decor, too!
Do you know how sometimes you just find something at the dollar store and you think, “Surely I can make something with this?”
That’s what happened to me when I walked into the dollar tree and spotted these adorable witch legs! I just knew they would be perfect for some kind of project. So I loaded up my cart and walked through the store mulling over the idea. By the time I got home I had the entire design planned out in my head and couldn’t wait to get it drawn out on my iPad using the Procreate app!
Once I had my vision in mind, it was time to make it come to life. I chose these fun bright DecoArt colors in a Halloween theme!
Getting Ready to Paint
First, I printed my template and cut it out with my jigsaw. Then, I was ready to paint the witch live on my Facebook page! I had given my followers a heads up to go grab some at the dollar tree a week or so before so that they could make this project with me! We started out by using graphite paper to trace the design onto our blank.
Soon we were ready to start by painting the basic background colors of her outfit. We did a little bit of shading with purple in the pink of her hair, then we finished it off by adding black outlines around the entire design and a few white highlights to make it look as if the light was bouncing off of her.
The Finished Witch Door Hanger!
Finally – here she is! Now she’s ready to hang on your front door for your Halloween porch decor!
I love that this door hanger takes the classic fall colors like orange and black and adds accents of pink, purple and turquoise.
Plus, she’s got such a joyful expression on her face! I’m sure she will welcome anyone into our home without frightening them off! She’s ready for Trick or Treat!
