Create your own Witch-Shoes out of an old or unused pair of shoes.

If you want to make something unique this Halloween, this is the “how-to” on transforming your old shoes into a chic pair of witchy-shoes. All you need is old or broken jewelry pieces, glitter, cardboard, ribbon or fabric, mod podge, and a little imagination.

  • Cut a piece of firm cardboard and tape to the front-bottom of the shoe to create a pointed edge. Then, Mod-Podge newspaper over the top and the rest of the shoe to create the dramatic effect. Allow 6-8 hours to dry properly.
  • Paint the shoes to the desired color, I chose black. Next, pencil out the pattern you want, paint, or mod-podge that pattern with your choice of fabric or ribbon.
  • Apply glitter in the places you desire by using more of your mod-podge glue.
  • I chose this pattern, but this idea can be applied to any colors you’d like. 
  • Now it’s time to apply the finishing touches. With a glue gun, add your old jewelry pieces, ribbon, hoop earrings, bat barrettes, and a couple decorative spiders. And don’t forget to check your local Dollar-Tree store for any cool craft pieces for those witchy-shoes. 


You can also spice up any Fall or Halloween wood signs with a just bow and a few fall decorations. Remember: A hot glue gun is always your friend.

I am a 48-year-old woman with nothing more than a high school diploma and two years of college under my belt. During my short college experience, I took a creative writing class and received a D+ from my professor. I never considered myself a writer, nor had I given it much thought until I experienced a personal hardship. I escaped the pain by burying myself into something creative instead of crying all day.

I told myself, ‘Just get to 60,000 words and then you can say you’ve written a book.’ Initially, I began writing as therapy but soon discovered; I loved it. An alternate universe exists? Inside MY head? Why had I not seen this before?

My husband, daughter, and sister advised me that I should create a blog, so that’s what I did. I believe the key to life is trusting your heart and following your dreams, no matter how big or small they are. No one knows what treasures lie deep within yourself unless you’re willing to travel into unknown territory to uncover those hidden gems. For me, that is the case. I have a true passion for writing. I am grateful for this opportunity to share my thoughts with others. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I loved writing them.

I do have a book series that will come out soon. I will post a few chapters before it is published so my readers can have the first look.

XO Beverley Miles.
