Children's Crafts - Witches Hat

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Witches Hat from www.walkaboutcrafts.com

You will need:

Large piece of black art paper about 15 inches (38 cm) square
Large piece of black cardboard
White pencil
Piece of string about 20 inches (51 cm) long
Silver or gold sticky paper or sticky backed plastic
Big snail shells
Plastic modelling clay
Silver or gold paint

1. Tie one end of the string around the pencil; use your thumb to hold the other end of the string at one corner of the paper. Then, puling the string taut, draw an arc between the two corners on either side

2. Use the scissors to cut along the pencil line so that you have a big quarter circle. Ask a grown up to help you roll in into a cone shape. Check that it fits your head and then glue it.

3. To make the brim, hold the cone in the middle of the black cardboard and use as a guide to draw a circle.

4. Draw a circle about 1 inch (2.5cm) inside the cone circle. Then draw a third circle about 3 inches (7.5 cm) outside the cone circle. Cut carefully along the inner and outer circles.

5. Cut lots of triangles on the inside brim, as shown, so that the points reach to the first circle that you drew. Bend up the triangles, these are tabs.

6. Smear the tabs with glue. Press tabs to the inside of the cone.

7. Cut star shapes from the gold or silver sticky paper or sticky based plastic. Stick on the hat. If you lie to decorate the brim with gruesome trims – like old snail shells, with bodies made form plastic modelling clay, painted silver or gold to match the stars.
