How to make a paper witch hat
We decided to make a “party hat” styled witch’s hat, as a) A3 card is more easily available (and I had some in and didn’t have to go to the shops and b) it is less likely to fall off your child’s head all the time and c) it looks cute.
I also think that this type of witch’s hat looks great on grown ups!
3) To make the cone – cut a quarter of a circle out of your card. I used a pencil and string to measure it out.
4) Roll into a cone shape and staple in place
5) Take your second sheet of paper, cut a circle (I used a plate as a “stencil). Then place your cone in the centre and draw around it to mark where it needs to go. Now cut a SMALLER circle out and the make indents into the remaining rim (see photo). Bend up and glue or tape in place.
6) Add a little tape were your elastic will go, to strength the card, make a hole with a safety pin and then make the whole a little bigger with a pencil. Knot the elastic and thread through – you may want to add a little tape to hold the knot in place. Then thread through the other side and knot again and tape to secure. The knots will show on the “outside” of the hat. But the decor will hide it.
7) Tie some netting around it and done.
Then dress you child in black (t-shirt and trousers/ tights) and add your hat and make a DIY tutu (from more tulle or from bin liners) and your done!
Now how was that for an easy Halloween costume?
