Do you need a last minute Halloween costume? This quick DIY will have you looking spooky in no time!
What you'll need:
Witch's Hat (I got this one at a craft store for $0.99!)
Glue gun and glue sticks
Assortment of fake flowers, garland, and any other funky pieces
First, crumple up some newspaper and stuff it into the point of the
hat. We are going to make the hat pretty heavy so adding some newspaper
will add some stability. Next, find a flower with a long wire stem. Pull the flower off the stem and put it aside for later. Slide the stem up into the hat and use some glue to secure the stem to the inside of the hat. I set the stem along the seam of the hat, the stem will act as a "backbone" for the hat. I also added a few drops of glue to keep the newspaper ball in one place.
Grab your glue gun and start gluing flowers, grasses, and other decorations to your hat!
A little hint about fake flower bundles: An individual stem from a bouquet can be made into a fuller bunch of flowers simply by sliding up from the bottom of the stem. I did this for most of my pieces so that each piece had more body.
