Day 290 - How To Make A $7 Glamorous Witch Hat.

Day 290 - How To Make A $7 Glamorous Witch Hat.

Well hello witches-to-be. The last few weeks we have been talking a lot about Halloween decorations. There have been monsters in the window, ghost in the lawn and bats in the entry way. Now it's officially time to start planning, talking and creating the one item that is a must for Halloween, the costume. Now, if you are the type of person who doesn't really get into Halloween but still wants to hand out candy and a spread a little Halloween spirit, than today's project is for you.

In my book, witches get a bad wrap. Why are witches always illustrated as ugly old hags? As I think about witches, they are anything but hags. Witches have a great work ethic since they are always brewing up trouble. They wear black. So chic! And hello stylish, classic, black witch hat? In short, witches are glamorous and today we are going to create something that says Ooo La La not shriek, shriek shriek!

Often times witch hats found in stores lack any kind of sparkle or pizzaz. In short, they end up looking not so glamorous. Watch this video to see how you can create a chic, simple witch hat that will bring cackles to all those cute little trick-o-treaters that ring your spooky doorbell.

Here is the supply list:

  • an inexpensive witch hat - ($3 at Target)
  • black paint
  • 3 white feathers
  • 1/8 inch of black glitter tulle
  • 1 large black plastic spider 
  • a paint brush
  • fast drying adhesive (I used Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue to glue on the glitter and a hot glue gun to attach the items to the hat)

Well, I'm off on my broomstick to keep that cauldron brewing up costume ideas. See you tomorrow glam witches!
