Today we have a special guest blogger. This is not just anyone blogging…
meet Mr. Woodsy’s mom, Linda!
My mother in-law made the infamous wood witch cut-out a few weekend’s ago and wanted to share with the readers of Sew Woodsy! Pictures taken by Mr. Woodsy dad, Frank whom we’ve dubbed PAPA-razzi because he loves to take photos (he takes some awesome photos and was the one who took our photos for our “About Us” section).

Print out the full-size witch template and the 25 to 30 inch templates for cats. These will print out in sections known as tileing you’ll want to tape them together. Cut out and affix to plywood with repositionable spray adhesive.
Using a jigsaw, carefully cut out witch and cat designs.
Because of the intricate cuts be prepared for this to take a little bit of time.
*Not pictured… peel off template, and paint plywood black. Let dry for 30 minutes. Hammer conduits into ground, sinking 12 inches for witch and 8 inches for cats. Attach figures to conduits using 3 conduit straps and 6 screws for the witch and 2 conduit straps and 4 screws for each cat. (The back of the cut-outs should look like how its pictured above!)
Now enjoy your witch and cat cut-outs!
