  1. Great ideas!????
    However, I am looking for the flying witch in purple cape. I clicked on here and can’t find her. Did I miss it?
    Thank you!

    1. Hey! I’m glad you find this prop interesting.
      Actually, this is a 12 ft talking animated witch from Home Depot. Unfortunately, it is always out of stock and very difficult to find now.
      That’s why I’ve removed it from my post since there is no link to suggest this prop. You can watch this youtube to learn more about this witch –

      Try to find it next season in your nearest Home Depot. Best of luck!
