Favor: Witch Shoes

I love Halloween.  All of it, costumes, candy, decorations, you name it.  However, living in Arizona, it has a new feeling…hopefulness of cooler (70’s?) weather.  I must will myself to not decorate until October 1st, otherwise by the 31st, I’m done and want to think about Thanksgiving already.  Once I saw these great witch shoes from The Fickle Pickle blog.  I knew I must make them.

How thrilled was I to learn, they are pretty fast and easy to make.  Of course I found on Pinterest, so the original pattern can be found on Skip To My Lou’s craft website.

Witch Shoes Supplies:

  • 12×12 black card stock
  • 12×12 Halloween themed scrapbook paper
  • Glue stick
  • Ribbon, buttons or other embellishments
  • Disposable icing/piping bags (if you choose to fill with candy, as a party favor or gift)

Fill them with candy, because really, it is all about the candy on Halloween.  In this case, I wanted to ship the witch shoes to another state so hard candy and/or candy-coated was a must.  Disposable icing/piping bags are an easy way to hold the candy.

Candy for Witch Shoes

use twist ties to keep candy fresh, then add ribbon

Such a cute treat!  Wish I had a ‘Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet’ stamp but I couldn’t wait to give them away.  Maybe next time.

I’m sure these would be super cute in a non-Halloween setting like a bridal shower or tea…but really I just loved the idea of witches shoes.  Happy Halloween!

Update:  Use the same paper shoe template to make princess shoes. With a change to vellum vs. scrapbooking paper, ta da they morph into glass slippers.  The vellum definitely isn’t as sturdy as scrapbook paper but once assembled and full of candy, they were fine.
