Christmas Doll to Halloween Doll

I had two animated dolls which were exactly the same, except for dress color. I only used one in green as a Christmas decoration. I saw all the cute Halloween witches in the stores and thought that I could transform the doll in the dark blue dress into a cute Halloween witch.



I cut off the white fur trim. I purchased 1/2 yard of Halloween fabric at Joanne's for the skirt. I picked up a toddler witches hat at the thrift store and took it in to fit the doll.




A 10 cent plastic pumpkin was put on the candle. The holly sprig on the candle was replaced with a spider.


I made her a little broom using a bamboo garden stake and raffia. I think she make a pretty Halloween witch.

Best wishes, NM.
