I love decorating with Witch legs and Witches Shoes during Halloween. It just reminds me that the Witch Is In! So I designed some fun shoes and leg patterns to help you decorate. Then add in some fun sayings: The witch is in, Don’t Make me Drop a House on you and You Say I’m a Witch like it’s a Bad Thing and you are sure to have some whimsical fun options to decorate with or wear!
Witches Shoes can be used on a shirt, a trick or treat bucket, sign, etc. I made an acrylic glitter tumbler with the files. There are so many possibilities.
This weeks FREE Witches Shoes PNG/SVG/cut file can be found in the Freebie Library. File number is 55 (remember the password is always in the bottom of your weekly email from me). I have also created a video tutorial along with some directions (a lot of don’t 😉 ) below on how I made this tumbler. I can’t wait to see your projects!!

Video Tutorial – Witches Shoes Tumbler
Here are the steps I took to make my tumbler
Step 1 – Open the file in your favorite cutting software. Cut vinyl to the size you need for your project.
Step 2 – Take your double wall tumbler and your drill and drill a hole into the bottom. NOTE: Care to only go through the first layer!! Reverse the drill to get it out and keep particles out. Also, make sure you are doing it to the edge of the tumbler to help get the glitter and liquid in,
Step 3 – Mix your glitter up. Now, there is such a thing as too much glitter. When I made my cup I put way to much in and had to work on getting some out. I save you from having to watch that part!
Step 4 – Now add the glitter to the tumbler. Couple of things I found that could be helpful is to tape a “glitter shield” around the cup. Just a piece of typing paper taped. It would help keep glitter spill to a minimum. Then a small funnel would help. I used paper. However, it was not working. So this is were the shield would help and then I did a taping motion to get the glitter in.
Step 5 – Now for the liquid mixture. I started with a vegetable glycerin and distilled water mix. However, because i had too much glitter it was not floating. I ended up working to get some out. I did grab another tumbler and added glitter and the glycerin\water mix and that seem totally fine. Back to my original tumbler…I ran out of vegetable glycerin and thought I would try baby oil. This works too, it is just a slower float. To add your liquid to the tumbler I used a large syringe. However, you could use condiment bottles from the Dollar Tree. Tilt your cup to get the air bubbles out and get as much liquid in as you can. Put your finger over the hole and shake it and tip it to make sure it is the way you like it.
I also added a mica powder to the glycerin\water mix. It tends to sink with the glitter so I don’t think I would do it again. However, it all is about what you like and what you want it to look like. I am sharing things i tried to help you along the way.
Step 6 – Once your tumbler is the way you would like clean off the bottom with alcohol and a pad. Next take your UV Resin and cover the hole. Then put the light over it. Repeat. Make sure the cup sits flat also. I ran my light a few times to make sure it was sealed.
Step 7 – This is something extra I did. Just to make sure the bottom was sealed good. I took and covered the bottom with UV and then added fine glitter. Chunky can cause you issues to get it smooth so stick too fine. Use your popsicle stick, silicone brush, etc and smooth it out. Then again use the light multiple times to make sure it is sealed.
Step 8 – Clean the area of the tumbler where you are going to place the vinyl with alcohol and a pad. Set aside.
Step 9 – Now to weed our vinyl. I then used parchment paper to help me layer my vinyl. I used the mixed leg pattern and did the pattern over the legs. Then layered the legs over the shoes.
Step 10 – Apply the vinyl to the tumbler. Make sure you rub it on well.
Step 11 – Shake and play with the tumbler!!! Enjoy!
