Halloween Crafts 2

Witches' Hats

This bewitching witch's hat makes a great table decoration for your Halloween party.

Be sure to visit all of our other ghostly crafts, our fabulous costume ideas and these spook-tackular Halloween recipes!

What you'll need:

  • 2 sheets of black construction paper
  • 1 sheet felt (green, orange, purple, or red)
  • Strip of black felt
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Tape

How to make it:

  1. Roll 1 sheet of black paper into a cone. Secure with tape (see image).
  2. Trim the bottom of the cone so that it will stand up on the table.
  3. Use a cup or jar as a guide and cut out a circle from black paper large enough for the hat brim.
  4. Glue the cone to the circle and set aside to dry (see image).
  5. Cut ¼” or ½” strips of felt and glue them around the cone.
  6. Cut a strip of black felt to go around the base of the cone.
  7. If you like, cut a bat out of black felt and glue to your hat.


  1. Buy construction paper at the dollar store for plenty of fun projects.
  2. Felt is inexpensive so stock up on 5 or 6 sheets each time you go to the store.
  3. Traditional Halloween colors include black, orange, purple, red and green. However, you can use whatever colors you like for this project!
