Do you like your witch hat BIG or small?
Either way today's post will hook you up.
Here is the tiny witch hat, it is on a headband base.
What you need to make a tiny witch hat:
Recycled black wool felted sweater
purple and green tulle (or whatever color you like)
small scrap of pretty yarn or ribbon
scissors, needle and thread, hot glue, dressmakers chalk
About a 3 1/4 inch round object, like a mug
paper and pencil
How to make a tiny witch hat:
Cut out the top cone shape, the round flat part of the witch hat and another circle about 2 inches in diameter, this last one won't show so it can be not perfect, all from the recycled wool sweater.
Form the cone and hot glue it in place.
Then glue the cone to the flat big circle.
Glue the bottom small circle to the top big circle sandwiching the head band in between.
Wrap the decorative yarn around the base of the cone.
Cut a few strips of tulle and gather them using a large running stitch.
Attach them to the witch hat with a fun pin.

These great directions are from the book:
The Lifestyle Editors of Creative Publishing international
The all-in-one Halloween book!
Creative Costumes & Halloween Décor combines costume and decorating projects into one convenient book. The costumes are designed around three basic styles: tabards, gowns, and full suits (made from pajama patterns). Accessories like wings, capes, skirts and lots of headwear are also included. Details like collars, gloves, spats, and face painting instructions offer lots of ideas for personalizing costumes.
The décor section includes 30 unique projects for decorating your house inside and out, along with special projects for throwing a Halloween party. The projects use common household products plus lots of craft-store items like wood pieces, paints, paper mâché, felt, craft foam, floral materials, and polymer clay. Elaborately propped beauty photos and step-by-step instructions with photos of every step make the projects--both costume and décor--easy to understand.
