The Witch is in… and a free printable

Some of you may remember that a short time ago,
I participated in a little series over at one of my Favorite Blogs
I shared a tutorial on how I made This Witch for my front door.You see,
This year I wanted to do something a little different to decorate my Front Door.
You ALL know I am ALL about having a decorated Door!
So, a few weeks ago, while visiting a friend’s house,
I saw the PERFECT Frame for my project hanging on her wall.
So what did I do?  I bought it off of her right then and there.
And took it home to create a Statement Piece to build my outdoor decor around.
And today I am here to show you how it all came together!



Isn’t She PERFECT?  
So HOW did I make her?
Well that is an EXCELLENT question.
It all started with a Pencil and a VERY Large sheet of Paper.
Yes, I drew her!
p.s. I never draw with anything other than a polka dot pencil!
You see, She measures 18″ tall.
I wanted EVERYONE who drives down my street to be able to see her!
After 4 Rough Drafts, and 3 erasers,
I finally had a good pattern.
From there she was traced and hand painted on to a board,
And mounted and framed.
{you can see the full tutorial here}
She is Totally Wicked.  
And I can’t help but cackle inside EVERY time I look at her!
So, Want to know how you can have your OWN Wicked Witch
WITHOUT having to Draw her??
Well, thanks to my good friend Your Home Based Mom,
I figured out how to create a Download for your Silhouette
{So All you Silhouette users can cut her out!!!}
 I also created a printable file for everyone else to use as a pattern too!!!
Before I get to the Download Links, Let me make a few things clear:

Here is where I am showing her off this week!

  8. Thank you oh so much. I saw your post on Eighteen 25 and fell in love. I was oh so jealous of your talent to sketch her out so easily. I was going to try to create something close but I lick the “amazing” drawing skills, only have so so skills. So really thank you. I have never taken to something like I did your witch. Yea happy day for me, this will complete my wicked decor! Going to pin it too! Thanks!!!!!

  16. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I loved the wonderful witch art, but my own drawing skills are quite lacking (must not be using the right polkadot pencils). Now, I can actually make my own (and it might actually look presentable). I appreciate you sharing this with everyone. You rock!

  20. Thanks for the Silhouette option. I was happy to see the link was still available to download. I remember looking at this cute idea last year. what did you do for the bats? Is there a tutorial for how you did the entire front door?

  21. Christy, What font did you use to write the witch is in- in? I can’t find something quite the same. Thanks.
