Halloween Witch Hat DIY

5 Materials
30 Minutes

This Dollar Tree sunhat was the perfect thing to use for making a super simple DIY Halloween witch hat. Here is the simple tutorial.

Halloween witch hat supplies

  • Sunhat from the Dollar Tree
  • Scrapbook paper of your choice
  • 2.5″ in ribbon of your choice
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Black paint
  • Chip brush
  • Embellishments

Start by painting the rim of the sun hat with your black acrylic paint. Using a chip brush, dab until the paint gets in all of the sun hat crevices. Be sure to paint both the top side and underside of the sun hat allowing to dry in between.

Take two pieces of scrapbook paper and create a cone shape using   THIS FREE PATTERN. Download Pattern HERE.

Adhere with clear tape, double sided tape or hot glue.

Then glue the cone to the top, unpainted portion of the sun hat.

Taking your wide ribbon, trim the base of your cone where it attaches to your sunhat

Now your witch hat is ready for embellishments! These could include, old jewelry, feathers, buttons, the sky is the limit.

I added my signature messy bow of course! Step by step tutorial on how to make a messy bow can be found HERE.

This DIY turned out so cute. I hope you’ll try it for yourself!

    Very nice project & tutorial!

    Think foam sheet could be used instead of paper to make it an outdoor decoration?
