Make a Framed Witches Hat!

Sharing is caring!

One night in July (yes July) I was visualizing my living room in October.  And I thought “How cute would witch hats be in those silver frames?!”

And I think I was right.  Seriously, I love these!

Here is the process of how I made them:


  • Styrofoam cylinder
  • Styrofoam circle a little wider than the base of the cylinder
  • Strong craft glue
  • Black fabric strips
  • Straight pins
  • Mod Podge
  • Orange paint
  • White fabric
  • Cardboard
  • Krylon Glitter Blast in Gold

First, I cut a cylinder in half vertically, then cut the circle in half.  I used the strong craft glue (E-6000) to glue them together.  This made the witch hat form.

After I made the forms, I used Krylon Glitter Blast to spray these black and glittery.  But it didn’t work very well…and ended up looking a bit industrial and uninspired.  I decided to take black strips of fabric and cover the form.  I used straight pins to keep the fabric in place, wrapping the fabric around the form and pinning.

After wrapping my forms with fabric, I painted Mod-Podge all over to get it to stay in place.  It wasn’t completely smooth, but I liked the look, making it look like it’s a real fabric hat.

After the Mod-Podge dried, I embellished the hats with some lace, ribbon, and flowers.  I kept it simple and kind of vintage-y, and I just pinned on the embellishments so that I can change them next year if I want.

For the background, I decided to make my own orange and white striped fabric.  I used white canvas and wrapped it around cardboard.  Then I taped my lines using Scotch Painters Blue tape with Edge Lock.  It did a great job!

I used Plaid Paints orange paint to paint the stripes.

And for the final step, I sprayed a little of the Krylon Glitter Blast in gold on the orange stripes to glam it up a bit.  I really like this little touch!

After it all dried, I put the cardboard in the frames and just used more pins to attach the witch hats.  Such a fun touch!  (And I hung up the feather wreath that I made about 5 years ago.)
