Create your own Witches shoes out of an old pair.

Cut a piece of firm cardboard and tape to the bottom of the shoe to create a pointed edge or your own design. Mod podge newspaper over the top to create the dramatic effect and cover the outside. Allow 6-8 hours to dry properly.

Paint black, then using a pencil, trace out your sections that you want for different colors. Mod Podge on your fabric or favorite ribbons.

Apply the colored glitter where you want it by using the same mod podge paste.

Finish them off with a glue gun, hoop earrings and ribbon. Two old skull pieces that came off a belt, a bat barrettes, and decorative spiders. Check your broken jewelry pieces or a local Dollar Tree for inexpensive accessories.
