Faux snakeskin witch boots for Halloween.

This project is very quick, easy, and inexpensive. I used a faux snake skin fabric that I found at Wal Mart for a dollar a yard. I added some ball fringe trim but you can just hem it or use any fun thing you can find. I used this same pattern and heavy canvas to give this project a whole different look. (See below)


  • one half yard of fabric makes one boot
  • trim for top (optional)
  • polyester stuffing

Step 1.

Fold fabric in half so you can cut both pieces at the same time.

Step 2.

Put pieces right side together and pin. Using a half inch seam allowance stitch all the way around leaving an opening at the top.

Step 3.

Clip at heel and around curved parts to make it lay flatter when you turn boot.

Turn boot to the outside by sticking your hand inside and holding on the the tip and then pulling it through.

Press with a hot iron.

Step 4.

Hem top of boot and then add trim as shown.

Step 5.

Fill with stuffing.

To make these boots use heavy canvas. After you stuff them paint them black. Then scuff them up with sandpaper to give them an aged look. I added some black gauze at the top and tied bows. If you can’t find any black gauze you can easily dye white gauze in a pan of hot water.

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
