Painting a Witch Foam Head

Instructions:

Step 1 How to paint a witch foam head madeinaday.com

Start by painting the witch face with tan acrylic paint. Let it dry thoroughly. She already looks creepy!

Step 2 Witch Face Painting madeinaday.com

Fill in the wrinkles, nose and mouth with grey paint. I found using a dry brush technique {using very little paint on the brush} to highlight the crease areas worked best. You can also use your fingers to smudge the paint to create shadows on the face.

Step 3 How to paint a witch madeinaday.com

Add brown paint around the eyes and for the moles. Use black paint for the mouth, nose and as an eyeliner. Paint the hair area grey. Let all the paint dry completely. Do not worry if you make a mistake, you can always paint over it and start over. Just have fun with it!

Step 4 Witch Face Paint With Glitter madeinaday.com

With a brush paint glue over the eye pupils, then pour gold glitter over the glue. Shake off the access glitter. Use a dry paint brush to remove any leftover glitter from the eye area. Repeat with the copper glitter adding the glue to the wrinkles around the eyes.

Cut Wig Wefts off to make Witch Hair madeinaday.com

Take a cheap Halloween grey wig and cut a few of the hair wefts off of the cap.

Aim the wefts to fall over the face and hot glue to the top of the head near the hairline and down over the ear area. At first I tried using the entire wig, but found too much hair made her look like a creepy doll. So I cut the wig down. Less is more here.

Hot glue a strip of black fabric to the neck area of the head to look like a collar and hide the bottom of the head.

Witch Hat

Supplies:

Roll one of the felt sheets into a tall cone.

Trim off excess felt and hot glue the cone together. Cut out a 10 1/2 inch circle out of the second piece of felt. Hot glue the cone to the center of the circle. I wanted my witch to look creepy so I crushed her hat and used a dot of hot glue to add a crimp in the cone. Hot glue the hat to the top of the witches hair and back of the head.

Spooky Wreath

TIP: I find when making wreaths it’s easier to visualize the end product if you hang it up while working on it.

Cut stems away from branches for floral design madeinaday.com

Cut the foliage branches off of the bushels for ease when working on the arrangement. Using them as individual branches will give a more realistic and natural flow to an arrangement.

Hang wreath up to design it before securing embellishments madeinaday.com

Hot glue the moss to the bottom of the wreath. Bend the long green branches and let them flow over the top of the moss and hanging down from the bottom of the wreath. Use a few of the green branches going up each side of the wreath.

Place the black branches in the mid sections of the wreath and the curly whimsy branches as random accents. Once you have every thing where you want it, start gluing each piece to the wreath. You may need to use floral wire to secure some the branches.

Use Chicken Wire to secure wreath embellishments madeinaday.com

Add the chicken wire across the lower back of the wreath and secure with floral wire. This is the base that you secure the witch head to. To add the witches head you can secure it to the chicken wire with hot glue or floral wire.

If the head is too heavy or droops, the floral wire method is an easy option. Just poke hole with a thin object in the back of the foam head. Cut a piece of floral wire about 7 inches long and fold it in half. Add glue the folded end of the wire and insert it into the hole and let it dry. Ta-da! Instant security!

Use the embedded wires to tie the head to the chicken wire or ribbon. Add your sign to the top of the wreath with wire or hot glue and that’s it!

  1. Hi, Kim ~ This is awesome! I can’t believe you painted the foam head. I thought it came painted like that! Very nicely done! I also love the moss on the wreath. It gives the wreath an aged, decaying look. Pinning this so that I can give it a try on my own!
