Just in time for Halloween! 

I beaded this cute little witch who's holding her broom last Halloween.  You can't really see the green bead for the head in this picture because of the green fabric, but you'll get the idea when you go to the link.  These can be made into earrings also.  The directions are at About.com.  I've included the link below.

I've made a stack of these! They're fun aren't they.
I made one for my mum to hang on her ID for work.

When I made mine I changed the hands and the broom a bit so that the witch would be riding it.
I strung both the hand beads together and then added a bugle and a seed, go back throught the bugle and the hands then add a bugle and a seed then thread through a gap in the bottom row of her body and add a few seeds or a bugle and then thread out throught other side of her body through a gap in the bottom row. Now add a seed a bugle then keep doing the broom like nomal. Thread through all the beads a couple of times and tie off.
She looks great actually riding the broom. Then I made Glenda the good witch. Just do her in pink and turn the broom into a want with a star bead. Shes pretty cute too.

Oh and to hang them on Ids and earrings and whatnot I used tiger tail to connect the hat, head and body before I sticthed them together. You stick the tigertail in two gaps in the top of the hat then put the head on then thread trough the hole in the middle of the top of the body and put your crimp on. If you pull the tigertail tight and get the crimp up the body as far as you can the loop on top will be smaller. I just added a split ring on the loop then a little dog clip. Voila.

Your just jealous cause the voices only want to talk to me!

It depends on your beading ability, but I'd say about an hour or so.  After the first one, you'll be able to make them much faster.
