How to make an Origami Witch Hat – step by step instructions

You will need a square piece of paper. We cut down and A4 sheet of paper, folded up one corner and cut across the edge to make a square.

Once you have a square fold the paper across the diagnoal to make a centre diagnal fold. (You will have this already if you cut down your own A4 sheet.

Turn so you have a diamon in front of you.

Align the top right edge with the centre diagonal.

Repeat for the left side.

Fold up the bottom point to meet the edge (it looks like a little triangle).

Unfold EVERYTHING again. This time fold up the bottom triangle FIRST and then add the left adn right flaps.

Now roll up the bottom edge 3 times. This is your base of the witch’s hat.

Secure in place with some tape.

Now decorate to your witch’s hat to your heart’s content.. use black pens for doodling or cut paper bands and shapes. You can also use stickers.
