Cutie PATOOTIE little glitterey witch hats!
I pride myself on creating things using ‘unlikely’ or unusual supplies. Innovative AND inexpensive ideas. It’s what I do every day. But THIS is truly one of my MOST innovative creations!
These glittered witch hats are for display only; about 1/2 the size of a ‘wearable’ one. Pretty cute with the ‘eyelash’ yarn trim around the rim, eh?
I had seen some cute, slightly bigger (but still not FULL size) paper mache witch hats in another booth at Stars last time I was in. I wanted one!!! But $28.00 was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of my budget. And these weren’t even glittered!?!
So off I went to my favorite store, in search of ‘something’ that I could use to inexpensively creat some little witch hats out of. Here’s what I bought:
Have you ‘caught’ my vision yet???
How about now??
Okay . . . .NOW it’s starting to look like a witch hat! I was in a hurry, so I spray painted mine. The shiney surface of the hats would have required a sealer before I could use regular craft paint on them; so spray paint was faster and easier. (and probably CHEAPER since I buy the cheapo .99 a can flat black paint at Home Depot!) NOW it’s looking like a little witch hat!
On this first one, I decorated it with some wire edged ribbon I had picked up at Dollar Tree. Not necessarily and EPIC fail, but certainly not the “WOW!” that I was hoping to achieve.
So the next day I dug out my glitter and found some eyelash yarn and VOILA!!
These little hats will be sold in my space at Stars.
