I shared this project over at See Vanessa Craft for Vanessa's 30 Crafty Days of Halloween and wanted to share it with all of you as well!
It is super cute and easy!
I thought I would make a Fascinator, you know, those small hats or head pieces you see people wear to Royal Weddings and what not in England, and a witch hat turned out to be the perfect fit!
Here is how you can make one for yourself!
-12x12 sheet of black card stock paper
-Embellishments- ribbon, stickers, flowers, pic for creating a wreath, whatever you choose
-Double sided tape or hot glue gun
-Cutting Machine- I used my Silhouette.
-Thin piece of card board (cereal boxes work great!)
3D Witch Hat from the Silhouette Store.
Blow up the image to fit the size of the paper. The image has a band and buckle that is suppose to be with it but I erased them and then rearranged the pieces to fit on one page.
If you do not have a Silhouette, you could always use a party hat as a template and then trace the bottom to get the circle for the rim piece then trim the inner circle to make the rim width you would like.
Notice, it doesn't line up and cover all the flaps perfectly. It's ok... we'll take care of that next!
I added a little ruffle every so often with my ribbon by folding it back on itself.
And be sure to start your ribbon where the seam of the cone is in the back!
Cut a small circle out of a thin piece of cardboard or a cereal box.
This is what you will build your embellishment feature on.
You could always attach your embellishments straight to the hat but I like that I could build it how I wanted it more on the cardboard piece.
And now have fun!
I glued all this onto the circle first, then when I was happy with this (I kept putting it up to the hat to see where I wanted more or less), I glued my flowers on top of it.
You don't want to accidentally glue it shut!
Also, glue the opening part of the clips facing the BACK of the hat. This way you will open and slip them on from front to back onto your hair.
