A lot of recycling !!!!

papier mâché...

Well , it wasn't just papier mâché , we used that technique only for the head , of course ... The rest is mostly sewing , and there is a little painting for the face ... And a lot of imagining ...My niece made the face for this one ....I helped her finish it .
Here are different stages ...





This is for the hat ...














At the beginning , it could be anything , but it is amazing how you can put an expression on that ... Even more than on a teddy bear .














I used old tights to fix the hair on the head ...








It is starting to look like something ...









And now ..?? I think it is nice to start with a witch's face , because it doesn't have to be perfect , quite the contrary .But I liked the look of mine ... Is it sad ???











There she is ...( I used one of my sister's old skirts to dress her ) So this is all recycling again, isn't it ? ...










The two of them ready to go to the party.

your witch IS very sad looking. it is hard to be a witch, i think. everyone thinks badly of witches. but yours just looks misunderstood. i think she is very kind and beautiful.

your niece's witch is a SCARY disturbing witch. i am afraid of her!!!

Oh ! Thank you very much for what you say about our witches ! I am so pleased with your appreciation! It is exactly that . Mine has been carefully put aside after Halloween , and I am sure I will rediscover her when I take her out again. And I am sure that Marie wanted her witch to be frightening , she took her to her home .
Thank you again for coming , we like recycling , don't we ?
