Spooktacular Halloween Witch Hat Craft Idea and Vignette

Sharing is caring!

This DIY Witches Hat is Sparkly and Pretty

This hat is part of a witches vignette,  like the other vignettes I created this year I chose to make it more pretty that scary.  It has roses and sparkles and velvet and a cute curl at the top.  It can be worn as a part of a fabulous witches costume, or attach it to a stand like I did for Halloween decor.

Today I am also joining some very special friends for a Fall/Halloween blog hop, you will see there links at the bottom of this post.

This particular witches hat is part of a witches desk vignette so I mounted it onto a Styrofoam witch head and candlestick I found at the thrift store.     I am sharing a step by step tutorial for creating the hat and will post the simple tutorial for the hat stand afterwards.

To make you own pretty witches hat you will need:
A dollar store witches hat

Polyester filling

A metre (yard) of sparkly tulle

Glitter embellishments ( I chose a skeleton because it was purple)

Shiny black fabric (Mine is from a coat liner)

Thread, needle and  hot glue

Witch Hat Tutorial

Start by stuffing your hat, make sure it is very full.  If you plan on wearing the hat,  stuff it as full as you can while still leaving room for your head.  Once you are comfortable with the amount of filling, cut a circle of material and hot  glue it to the inside of the hat to protect your head from the stuffing.

Take the tulle and fold over and iron creating a hem.     With a measuring tape measure the circumference of your hat.  Fold the tulle in half.  Starting at the center, measure from the  half the distance of the circumference.  Gather the tulle in about one inch gathers.

Once gathered loosely sew the gathering together.  Do the same on the other side.

Take the front center of the tulle and place on the front of the hat and wrap around to the back.  Sew the tulle to the hat,  don’t worry if the stitches show.  There should be a tulle hanging down the back of your hat.

Witches Hat Stand

Craft stores have various kinds of styrofoam heads for Halloween, I was super fortunate and found the styrofoam witches head when I was searching for a large candlestick.

Using some black chalk paint  (Small jar of Martha Stewart brand) paint your witches head and let dry.

Depending on the style of candlestick you have you can use a doweling set down into the candlestick and then into the head, or if the top of your candlestick is wider you can simply hot glue it into place.

For this candlestick, I used a small piece of Styrofoam hot glue and toothpicks to create a small base that fit into the candlestick.  Once that was done I used black hot glue to attach the base to the candlestick.

The remainder of this vignette is cute purchased items that I have gathered over the years. I purchased the spell books and cute sparkly witch shoes from Michael’s this year.  Thankfully they were 60% off.

All girls even witches appreciate fancy party shoes and I would give anything for a Spell to make husbands dance as much as you want them to, good rhythm is optional.

      Hi Janine. I am really enjoying this group of bloggers, they challenge me to create something different.

  10. Oh, your witches hat turned out awesome Leanna!! Love all of the sparkly touches that you added and the way the tulle falls at the back!! Such a clever idea with the candlestick for a stand for it!!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      The candlestick is really nice Sam. The top can flip over for either a large or tapered candle, which means it comes apart. I am able to separate the head portion off so its easier to store. Glad you like it.
