Hi Bad Girls!
All Hallow's Eve is just around the corner, have you got your costume picked out? I've been busy brewing potions, dusting off skeletons, shooing away bats and lighting jack-o-lanterns. Well...ok, maybe I haven't. But I have been busy making Halloween party hats. I thought it would be fun to put a couple of my favorite things together, my love for Halloween and pin up girls to create a fun and flirty party hat.
One sheet 12x12 pattern paper
Witch pin up girl image
Two silver pipe cleaners
Two stars and one bat chipboard
20 gauge wire
Black pom pom trim
Spray adhesive and glue
Needle and thread
To make the cone shape, draw a wide triangle, then changed the bottom from a straight line to a curved shaped. Cut out the triangle and put a line of glue down one side of the triangle, then roll it into a cone shape.
Next, we're going to make the rosette. Cut one crepe paper strip 1/2" wide by 6" long.Take your needle and do a running stitch through the length of the crepe paper. Gather the ends together and pull until it forms a circle. Tie it off by making a couple of knots.
Use spray adhesive on the bare chipboard and sprinkle on the glitter
The next step is just coiling the wire (cut two 6" pieces) and pipe cleaners around a pen. Take the wire coils and glue them to the back of the stars
Take your orange crepe paper and cut it into narrow strips.Glue to the top of the hat, glue the stars with wires to the top of the hat as well.
Now we're ready to put it all together!
Attach the rosette to the front of the hat, place the pin up girl image on top of the rosette. Stick the pipe cleaners behind the rosette, adhere bat to rosette. Place "Witchy Woman" phrase across pin up image. Adhere pom pom trim around the bottom of the trim.
The finished product!
