Cool idea, Haunty.
I've made a new Witch prop for this year, and a couple of these hanging from the tree behind her will be a good addition to the setting.
Thanks for the idea!

Haunty - Thanks for the link. I wanted to make some to hang around my voodoo hut...(OK, it's really my craft shed ;))
But for Halloween its a voodoo hut. I had just randomly tied sticks together, but I think the addititon of the cloth makes it scarier. :eek:
P.S. Blair Witch scares me too, especially the last scene...:eek::eek::eek:

I was hiking off-trail in the woods last autumn and came across a few someone had randomly strung up...it was quite spooky (the weird quietness of the forest accentuated this) and my friend and I didn't hang around, even though we had previously done the same thing at an old camp site one summer, lol! Good times.

I did that one year, except I used twine and did not use cloth. I think they looked pretty creepy. That was the year after the movie came out though, I'm not sure how many people would get what they were now.

Hahahah, that is too funny! I wouldn't have stuck around either, who knows!

They were creepy, and to the observer they may suggest a human shape, but they really didn't mean anything specific - which may be why they were so creepy, the enigma of them.

Were they small symbols of the 'witch's' victims?
Were they an attempt at some stylized pentagram, or more accurately a pentacle?
Were they the personal sigil of the witch, markers for her territory?
Were they warnings made by other people to ward off traveler's from the witch's domain?
Who knows?

I like the idea of a few being hung with other things, like mobiles made of bones and feathers, witch jars lit with candles, animal skins, kitchen utensils like giant ladles, cleavers and forks...
and bags, bags with something twitching inside.

I share everyone's concern about kids missing the connection to the movie, but I think most people who hadn't seen the movie would instincitvely recognize their creepiness.
And Spats nailed it:

Awesome ideas for presentation!
