Halloween Props for witches


Some people are very into Halloween. In fact, there are people in the world that spend weeks – if not months – planning and crafting the perfectly spooky and scary costume for the last day of October. For most of us mere mortals, however, cobbling together a Halloween costume is something that takes place the night of October 30th. Even if you are one of the people that holds off on getting a costume ready until the last minute, there is no reason why you cannot have a first rate witch or warlock costume. It all comes down to the props.

Even if you are one of the people that holds off on getting a costume ready until the last minute, there is no reason why you cannot have a first rate witch or warlock costume. It all comes down to the props.

For the purpose of this exercise, we will assume that you already have a dress or skirt and top to wear as you traverse the streets as a candy loving witch. What you need, however, to really bring your costume to the next level, is a collection of props that will render your costume unbelievably convincing and recognizable. After all, there is nothing worse than having to explain what you are a dozen times throughout the course of the evening.

Halloween Props for Witches and Warlocks

First, you need the ideal witch hat. Witch hats are typically tall and black, with a pointed top and a wide brim. Witch hats are generally available for purchase at costume stores but, in a pinch, you can make your own out of cardboard and acrylic paint. Just cut yourself a cone, tape it to a wide circle, and paint the whole thing black. If you are going to paint your own cardboard hat, make sure that you allow for adequate drying time. You do not want to get paint in your hair.Cauldrons, Wands, and Brooms: The Perfect Halloween PropsOnce you have your hat and outfit ready, it is time to think of other props you can find to really tie the whole witch look together. You can fashion yourself a wand out of a dowel rod, if you so desire. If a wand is not your thing, you could also find a broom to carry with you while you go trick or treating. After all, a flying broom is most witches’ preferred mode of transportation. For a witch’s broom, it is better to carry an older style wooden handled straw broom. The newer plastic brooms lack the panache of the more traditional varieties.Finally, you should consider how you will hold your haul of sweets as part of your costume. It is not really all that convincing for a diabolical and cunning witch to collect her candy in a pillow case. Instead, consider using a cauldron for trick or treating. Carrying a cauldron will really support the look you are going for. You can purchase plastic cauldrons at almost any costume store, but if you do not want to buy something specifically for Halloween, you can always just use a cleaning bucket. Spruce up a plastic household bucket with some Halloween fabric and ribbon. It seems likely that witches will get more candy when they show up with a cauldron than just a simple household pillow case.
