This cute witch shoe pattern can be used on a DIY witch Gnome, as decor items or even in flower arrangements and cake toppers. They are easily constructed following our step-by-step tutorial. These are similar to our popular DIY Gnome shoes, but we have made a few changes to accommodate a point, which is a must for all witchy shoes.

This easy-to-make witch shoe pattern uses Cricut vinyl cardboard tubes, but you can use any cardboard tube, such as paper towel tubes, toilet paper tubes or poster tubes. If you use cutting machine vinyl, you’ll appreciate how the leftover cardboard tubes add up. Anytime we can recycle the cardboard tubes is a win for us!

Adhere the felt to the fabric grip mat. (see mat saving tip below)

TIP FOR CUTTING FELTFelt can be hard on cutting mats because they have a lot of fibres. To reduce the amount of clean up and preserve your cutting mat, try adhering the felt onto a piece of sticky contact paper, Place the contact paper onto a standard grip mat and cut using the rotary cutting tool. This is a great tip[ from our Beginner Tips for Cricut)

If Using Scissors and the printable pattern

Download the printable pattern from our free resource library.

If you have legal-size paper (8.5 by 14), choose this size for printing. If you don’t have the option of the larger paper, the pattern will print on two sheets of paper.

Once printed, cut the witch shoe pattern pieces out. (Resizing tip below)

If you need to resize the pattern, use the pieces as a guide for making each witch shoe pattern piece larger or smaller as desired. This can be tricky, and make take a couple of tries until you get the sizing correct. To avoid waste, I recommend you do the resizing on scrap paper and when you have the desired size, then cut your fabric. If using Cricut vinyl tubes, use the sizes listed above.


Cut a cardboard tube into two -2 inch lengths for the back of the boots and one piece of cardboard tube into a 1-inch length. (see image below for reference on cut cardboard tubes)

Cut the short 1-inch length cardboard tube in half, so that you have two U-shaped pieces of equal size.

Attach the tubes

Using hot glue, glue the cardboard tube pieces onto one of the sole pieces (as shown in the image below)

Form the shoe points

While the glue is drying, fold an 8-inch square of aluminum foil into a triangle. Keep folding it into a triangle until it is small enough to be inserted into the toe of the shoe.

Wrap a small piece of poly-fil batting around the point and insert it into the toe. make sure it fits snuggly and doesn’t move. If needed add more foil or fill. Work the toe into a point after it has been inserted.

Add a small amount of glue under the toe, adhering it to the sole.

Attach Pointed Toe

Apply a small bead of glue to the top of the cardboard tube toe. Position the fabric on top of the toe and centre it in place. Once you have it centred in place, continue adding glue to the sides, and toe areas.

Use clear packing tape or masking tape and wrap it around the sole and side of the shoe. make sure to press the tape to ensure that it adheres on all sides and maintains the point.

Attach Side Panel

Fold the side panel in half, to find the center.

Attach the side panel, matching the center of the panel onto the centre back of the shoe.

Once you have it centred, continue gluing the sides of the shoe and up onto the toe.

Attach Outer Sole

Glue on the outer sole, matching the toe points and heel.

Add Laces and Embellishments.

For laces, Use embroidery floss or a small ribbon and a large darning needle.

For embellishments, apply hot glue to the embellishment and adhere it to the desired spot on your shoe.

How to use our Witch shoe patterns to make picks for flowers or wreaths

Once you have e constructed your witch shoes using our witch shoe pattern, apply some hot glue inside of the shoe and adhere a small piece of floral foam to the shoe base. Using a metal skewer or X-Acto knife cut a small hole in the bottom of the shoe, into the sole and foam.

Add some glue into the hole and insert a wooden or plastic skewer into the hole. Allow drying completely before using.

Insert into floral or wreath arrangement.

For use outside, remember to use moisture-friendly, craft supplies. The cardboard tubes will quickly fall apart if they get wet. Choose water-safe products, such as pieces of PVC pipe or plastic containers, such as YOP drink bottles (or similarly sized bottles) or even water bottles.

For fabric substitutions, that are weather-friendly, opt for craft foam sheets, faux leather or thin plastic craft sheets. Even though felt will withstand getting wet, it can wrinkle or sag with the weight of moisture.
