This is Part one of another Blair witch doll tutorial. To use these, imagine a room or corner in your haunted house. A tree you cut down and mounted in a christmas tree stand. All the leaves are removed from the tree. The tree can retain it's natural color or you paint it black. These dolls are hanging on the branches with an ambient orange or red light shining upwards towords the dolls. That's my plan. The branches can be different sizes. There is plenty room for error making these things and you can make any size you want. Be creative!!
Here is what you will need:
1. Burlap material
2. A collection of tree branches to cut out the little dolls figures. (About 1/4" thick)
3. Hot wax/glue gun
4. Hack saw to cut branches
6. Roll of jute string (hobby lobby)
Start out by cutting out some "Y" pieces and straight pieces from your branches
Place the straight piece on top the "Y" to see where you want it
Squeeze a dab of wax where stick are to be joined
Place the stick together, let harden up a bit, then flip the whole thing over and dab some more wax on the other side for strength
Cut a piece of burlap in a square, (estimate size) This square will be glued on diagonally
Fold diagonally connecting two opposite corners
Fold again to connect the corners (you should now have a triangle)
Take your scissors and cut the tip off. This will make a little hole in the center to pass the stick through
