How do I make a tomato cage witch?

These trash bag witches are so very easy to make, let’s get started.

I started with a regular-sized tomato cage and placed it upside down on the floor.

I put a plastic pumpkin pail upside down onto the 3 stakes of the tomato cage. Depending on the weather and where you're putting them you can use twine to tie the pumpkin pail handle to the tomato cage for stability.

I placed a yard sized garbage back over the pumpkin pail and tomato cage, and used twine to tie a waist for the witch under the pumpkin pail. Later I decided to switch this to some yarn I had on hand but you could also use ribbon, or anything you want.

Later I decided to switch this to some yarn I had on hand but you could also use ribbon or anything you want.

I hot glued another pumpkin bucket to the top for a head. You could use the face of the pail or place it backwards as I did. I'll left mine blank but you could also draw or paint a face on if you like.

Optional step. I bought one of these battery operated LED lights from the dollar store and placed it inside so my witch head would flicker at night.

I added a witch hat to the top of the pumpkin pail. If you put an LED light inside you'll need to be able to reach inside and turn it on. If you aren't putting a light inside you can hot glue the hat to the head. To make the hat stick up right I filled it with a couple recycled grocery bags.

To make the hat stick upright I filled it with a couple of recycled grocery bags.

I made 3 of these witches. To create their arms, I cut strips of another garbage back, made a knot in the middle to represent a hand, and hot glued the ends to each witch. This is the corner or shoulder of the garbage bag. On the witch ends, I hot glued a strip to the shoulder and made a knot at the end and left it hanging out.

I love how the witches turned out!

What do you think of my garbage bag witches? So easy right?!!! I’m placing them in my front yard with our Halloween pumpkins. Now maybe I need a black cat? Wouldn’t this be fun for a Halloween party too? My daughter loves Hocus Pocus. We can make a party invitation with Halloween witch images, and I can add some more Halloween witch decorations, witch silhouettes, and Halloween witch stock photos from the movie.

We can dress up in cute witch costumes with long hair, pointy hats, and black shoes. You can amend these witches to have any of these things as well.

We’ll watch the movie with our favorite foods.

  10. Very clever and well done for a spooktacular display! I have a trio of ghosts used to encircle a tree with a flood light shown up in the center branches. Love it but had to buy it in a post Halloween clearance.

    1. Thank you so much Debbee. and your ghost display sounds fabulous.

  11. Such a fun idea and the wirches look so cool!

  12. I made the 3 garbage bag witches. They turned out really cute. Unfortunately in Minnesota it’s a little windy and i kept ending up with headless witches. To solve that issue I filled a small hole in the bottom bucket and the top bucket and fastened them together with a small screw and bolt. Added a few rocks for extra weight. Problem solved.
