This idea has been posted a lot on Pinterest and on HF, and I thought it was really cute. So, I searched around and was able to gather these items for the project over time. Got the Union Products cauldren at a rummage sale for 50 cents, dollar store knee socks $1 and spanish moss $1, yard sale shoes .50, broom $1.50. Used an old pool noodle for legs and some scrap foam inside the cauldren. Also used some dollar store bamboo sticks $1 to stick inside the pool noodles and into the foam in the cauldren. Threw some rocks into the bottom of the cauldren before the foam, to stabilize the whole thing. Total cost was a whopping $5.50, and I am pleased with the result. I will probably display this on the front porch this season.

GR, Thanks, it really was simple to make!
Halloween71, thanks!
Hilda, Ha, I think it is funny too. I found the socks at the 99-Cent-Only Store. They only had pink/black stripes, so I went with it.

Made me laugh! Cute!!! Pool noodles are a great idea!

Did you notice... do they have orange and black striped socks at Dollar General? I'm only finding stockings and I need socks. Thanks! :D
Hilda, I asked my sister who is one of the managers at the Dollar General down the street from me and she told me they don't sell them.

HalloweenTrick and DaveintheGrave, Thanks for the comments. You know, I have also seen where people put severed hands and feet into clay pots with soil to "grow your own zombie"

Thank you! That was so sweet of you to ask for me!

I also see my error in that it did not specifically say which dollar store the socks came from. Oops. :eek: Thank you Paint It. My search continues! This is a fun prop!! :D

Here we have DollarTree and 99-Cent-Only stores. I was in a Dollar General once in FL. They all carry similar items.
Sometimes you can find weird socks at school or church rummage sales. That's how I get lots of inexpensive clothing, hats and shoes to use for costumes.

Awesome! That would look great on my porch and have a muffled voice screaming for help would make it come to life. Nice work!
