Tabletop Witch's Hat

Here's a fun, different idea from the traditional Halloween decorations- a Tabletop Witch's Hat.

Got an old pattern for a witch's hat laying around? If not, go online and find one! I wanted mine to be slightly nontraditional, so I used jean fabric.


Sew the triangles together and turn right side out.

This is where I went "off pattern." Instead of following the pattern, cut a long strip of fabric.

Fold it in half and sew it together the long way, pleating it as you go.


Pin the pleated hat brim to the hat.


Sew it on.

This is what it should look like so far.

Cut a piece of felt that will fit the opening of the hat.


Pin the felt in place, leaving an opening large enough for your hand to stuff the stuffing.

Sew the felt on part way, again, still leaving the opening. Then stuff the stuffing in nice and tight.

Sew the rest of the way closed. It doesn't matter what the seams look like, since this side will be facing down.

Paint the hat all over with black paint and let dry.

Sand in various areas to age the denim.

Tea stain some cheesecloth strips. Then tie onto your hat.

Add in some dried flowers.

And you know what they say.. if the shoe- er... hat fits...



I will be linking to these parties!

  9. I love the way you tea-stained the cheese cloth. I could use that idea for so many things in my shabby chic house! Cheese cloth is a texture that adds a powerful punch at this time of year.
