Years ago, I made a DIY Halloween wreath using a witch hat as my wreath base.  The hat was then embellished with spooky eyeball filled flowers, a frog skeleton, and a bat.  It was cute, but I wanted to update the general idea with a more fall floral look.

While I was looking for inspiration for my witch hat, I found a picture of Stevie Nicks – who else? – wearing a custom made witch hat adorned with dried flowers and ribbon.  It was so beautiful and exactly the natural look I was going for!

So off I went in search of the perfect fall florals to create my vision.  It took a while to find just the right combination of flowers and colors, but I scored big at JOANN’s last month.  They were having a buy one, get two free deal on Bloom Room brand florals.

I ended up finding the exact – I mean, the exact – color combos and types of flowers and stems I was looking for!  I even managed to find some Halloween ribbon on sale that worked perfectly for my hat!

After putting this witch hat together, I glued ribbon onto the back of it so I could hang it from my door.  But it would also make a pretty tabletop decoration or centerpiece for the Halloween season.

The first thing we’re going to do is cut our ribbon to fit around the bottom of the point.  If desired, cut two longer pieces to trail off the end of the hat.  Heat a glue gun and glue the ribbon in place.

Figure out which way the point of the witch hat falls naturally and glue it flat onto the hat.  Now, we’re going to start trimming the flowers with wire cutters and arranging them around the hat.  Glue the flowers into place.

Once the glue has dried completely, add a loop of twine or ribbon to the back for hanging.

Allow the glue to dry and then display the witch hat next to cinnamon brooms or on the back of a door.
