I love the Santa Hat Door Hanging I made last year before Christmas, and I thought it would be fun to make a similar craft for Halloween. Just like the hanging Santa Hat, the hanging Witch’s Hat is really easy to make, and it looks so good.
Flat-back hanging basket (I got this one at Joann, but I found several options on Amazon – you want something with a flat back.)
Spooky accessories (like the rat & spiders)
Wire cutters (optional)
Start by cutting off half of the brim on the hat. You might need wire cutters if your witch hat has a wire in the brim.
After you cut the brim, it should look like this.
Glue the flat-backed basket to the hat. (You don’t have to use one of these baskets – it helps to fill out the hat, but you could use tissue or stuffing to achieve the same result. Then you’d just have to attach some ribbon to the hat to make it hang.)
I glued ribbon around the body of the hat to give it a pop of color. I then added a plastic spider to the center of the ribbon.
Start filling up your hat! I thought about using lots of orange flowers, but was won over by the spooky purple.
If you’d like, add on the extra spooky items, like spiders or this cute lil’ rat.
And that’s it! So easy and it looks so good.
Any questions, let me know. Have fun!
