I love Halloween, and today I had some time and wanted to start making some tags and cards. My first project for the morning was to try making a witch's hat. Bad witch or Good witch...Good witch, of course.
I took out some stiffened felt to make my decorative witch's hat. I made a cone shape and used tacky glue to hold the felt together. I needed to use clothespins and sewing pins to hold the seam together. It took a long time for the tacky glue to hold.
Then, I used a large soup bowl and traced around the rim onto cardstock. I then cut out my circle for the brim. I used this for my brim pattern. I placed the pattern on another piece of black stiffened felt that I bought for 99 cents a sheet at Michael's. When my circle was cut out, I cut an X shape in the center of the circle, and then put the brim onto the hat, and glued down the flaps from the X inside the cone.
When everything was dry; I cut out a thin strip of green and orange felt and glued the felt to the base of the brim. I then cut sheer black and orange ribbons to attach to the top of the hat and added a round Happy Halloween decoration to the front. My witch hat is approximately 6 inches tall. I am not sure if this will be the final look as I may change things up a bit.
What do you think of my witches hat?
In the morning I will share with you my Halloween pop up card and decorated envelope.
