How to Make Witch Legs
Looking to add some extra spookiness to your Halloween decorations? These witch legs are the perfect addition! They’re easy to make, and you can customize them any way you want.
The witch legs are inspired by one of my favorite childhood movies, The Wizard of Oz. I wore the VHS tape (remember those?) out because I watched it so many times. I always had to fast forward through the flying monkey part. They were too scary for my liking.
How To Make Halloween Witch Legs
- black heels or boots
- striped knee high socks
- 10-12 plastic shopping bags
Head to your local thrift store in search of the black heels or boots and striped socks. I bought the shoes for these legs at Value World for $1.69.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
How to Make Witch Legs
- Stuff the Socks
Begin by stuffing plastic bags into a sock. Keep going until the sock is full or mostly full. Squeeze it a little to shape it.
- Insert Leg Into Shoe
Once the leg is stuffed and shaped to your liking, insert it into the shoe. Repeat with the remaining sock, plastic bags, and shoe.
- Put the Legs Under An Object
If you want the legs to look a la Wicked Witch of the West, fold over the top of the socks and position them as close to a large object as possible.
- Style the Legs
I put my DIY witch legs under my spooky Halloween tomato cage tree.
So, there you have it! A simple guide to making spooky witch legs for your Halloween decorations or party. We hope you enjoy this craft and that it helps add some extra frightful fun to the holiday season. Have a happy (and safe) Halloween!
Inexpensive is my favorite style. Love it! Goodwill boy-cotters unite! My FAVORITE is when you find something BRAND NEW in goodwill and they left the $4.98 target price tag on, but they have it marked at $9.99. Or when you find something from the dollar tree for $5. HA! *rolls eyes* Nexttttttttt!
Excuse me— I take that back. Goodwill would never have something marked at a common price like $9.99. Let me rephrase. My FAVORITE is when you find something BRAND NEW in goodwill and they left the $4.98 target price tag on, but they have it marked at $9.47.
Haha! So true.
Goodwill here in East Tn prices are reasonable a dollar for a hard back book 5 and under for a lamp. I agree no ceo of a non profit should be lining their pockets with $400.000.That’s ridiculous.I don’t know what they support except job training in this area.
I am so sorry to hear that you’re boycotting Goodwill. Goodwill does so much more than just operate its stores! In central Indiana, Goodwill is instrumental in the Nurse-Family Partnership, a program that pairs pregnant mothers with a nurse that provides home visits from prenatal-2 years old to help with healthy child development, behavior management, and parent education. It also operates The Excel Center, a school that provides adults an opportunity to get a high school diploma (not GED) free of charge. It provides job training to each of its graduates, and even provides IndyGo bus passes and child care on site. Is any nonprofit perfect? No. But Goodwill, at least Goodwill of Central Indiana, does so much for members of our community who have had limited opportunities. You support these initiatives and so many more when you shop at or donate to Goodwill.
That’s great but I think they need to reevaluate their officers’ salaries (in 2008 the CEO of Goodwill of Central Indiana made nearly $400,000– seems quite excessive to me, especially for a non-profit), the pricing in their stores, and how they treat their employees. Thrift stores like Goodwill were created to help those afford clothing and home goods that couldn’t otherwise purchase in regular, big box stores. Almost $5 for a used, dingy shirt? $2.66 for a used book published in the 80s? It’s ludicrous. Especially when Goodwill didn’t pay anything for those items because they were donated. I seriously don’t see how people in poverty can afford to shop at Goodwill. And then there’s the whole issue of them taking advantage of employees with disabilities (which Goodwill receives tax breaks for employing)– paying some only $.22 an hour. They may do some good, but the bad is really bad in my opinion, and fundamentally, I can’t support it.
Truthful rebuttal reflects my opinion as well.
Thank you! So true and well said!
What a clever clog you are! I love this, so cheap and quick to do, I think we might have to make a set of witch legs for Halloween this year too. Thanks for sharing.

Oh! How awesome are you! If only Australia was more accepting of Halloween. We get kids trick or trearing wearing just a mask or costume at all. Zero effort. Cheeky nuggets.
Ps – I also loved The Wizard of Oz growing up. My mum (single parent in the 80’s) couldn’t afford the VHS player and a VHS. I was heart broken. But then I remember the salesman threw the VHS in for free. It’s funny how some random childhood memories stay with you.
these are just so awesome!! I too LOVE wizard of oz and still watch it when I can:-)
