DIY Giant Witch Hat Halloween Lawn Decoration

Ever have a craft idea that feels larger than life? That's what inspired this GIANT DIY witch hat lawn decoration for Halloween! Read on to find out how I made this and learn where you can watch the full process.

This Halloween outdoor decoration is made up of gardening materials that you can find at any of Lowes hardware stores. But these materials were out of season so they were moved to the very back aisles of the outdoor gardening section of Lowes.

First, grab a tomato plant stand from Lowes and bend the three top points to form a curved point and really bring out that witch hat shape. Secure the top three ends together with a couple of zip ties.

Cut off the bottom loop which will create three legs and help pin the hat to the ground.

Next, layer your favorite outdoor lights inside of the wire frame, with the end of the light string that doesn't get plugged in hanging from the top of the tomato tower.

Cover up the lights and tomato tower by wrapping the whole thing in gardening fabric. Cut at the point where it covers the hat completely and continue to snip off excess fabric starting at the skinny top where the curved point is.

Meanwhile, I took a hot glue gun and started gluing fabric together starting from top to bottom to make sure to cover the tomato tower and lights. I used a regular stapler to staple the very top of the fabric to the end point of the hat at the top to hold the fabric in place while I continued to cut off excess.

For the bottom rim of the witch's hat, I used a 19 inch hoop and cut a larger piece of fabric around it. This bottom piece of fabric sits directly underneath the hat and you're done! Stick those bottom three legs of the tower directly through this bottom piece of fabric when sticking the hat into the ground.
