Witchy Petticoat Wreath Tutorial

Beaulah wants to welcome
you to our home with
two new of her witchy friends.

These adorable witches with
their legs peeking out of
their fluffy petticoats
are here to greet you as you
enter our Halloween fun home.

These girls are just some of
the fanciest friends
that Beaulah has.

All fluffy and pretty and
ready to party.

Start with a small metal wreath form.
I got mine at Wal Mart for $1.77.

Then I chose three colors of 21 inch
Deco Mesh.  These were $4.77 a roll at
Wal Mart and there was enough to
make two petticoat wreaths.

I laid all three colors out on top
of each other so I could cut three
at once.  Cut into 12 inch wide

Cut 12 sets of 3 so that you have a
total of 36 lengths.

Roll each strip up and stack them
then twist them together with half
of a pipe cleaner.

Wire them onto the back of the
wire wreath.  I did two on each
of the six crossbars.  

When all of the tubes of mesh
are wired on, tie a ribbon across
the back of the wreath form.  This
will be where you tie your legs on.

Cut three to five sets of three ribons,
21 inches long, then wire them
together with half of a pipe cleaner.

Tuck the ribbons down through the
mesh rolls and wire each bunch
onto the wreath form.  I did one
on top, one on each side and after
putting on the girls' legs, I added
one set behind their legs.

We already had two sets of witchy
legs that I had from years past
which I had purchased from 
Tuesday Morning.  I searched
everywhere and found more 
at Gardner Village in SLC
but you could sew your own or
borrow a set from one of your
witch decorations.

Beaulah says that was the fastest and
easiest Halloween decor ever!!
It took 45 minutes to make a wreath.

She is loving their fluffy skirts and wants 
to have a wardrobe change with
petticoats like theirs!!

Hope you enjoy our fun, flirty
door wreaths that welcome
you into our Halloween Home.

These girls want to party with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
