This is a quick and easy step by step tutorial for how to make a mini witch hat. Just in time for Halloween!
Click to watch the video! I’ll update soon with text/photo instructions as well.
You can make your hat to wear or just use it as a decoration.
You’ll need to download my free circle skirt template to make the hat. I used a glitter craft foam for my hat, but you can also use felt or even paper!
Stay tuned because tomorrow I’m posting a tutorial for a pixie skirt, which goes quite nicely with the hat when done in witchy fabrics!
As promised, the very first WhatTheCraft video tutorial is here!
Check it out for step by step instructions for making a square bottom bag.
