I am so excited about this post today! I am the newest member of the FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Team! Yay! Each month we get a new theme and we are challenged to come up with a unique crafty idea using Make It: Fun® Foam! This months challenge was to recreate one of new craft projects in their Halloween Booklet of with our own style and flair!

I chose the Witch Hat Topiaries to recreate. You can find the original project in the Halloween Idea e-Booklet along with lots of other creative projects and fun templates.

I chose to use trendy Ikat and tribal fabric, added some tulle, then played around with pops of orange and purple! This project is easy enough for a beginner. Here’s how I made my version~

  • Black fuzzy fabric, 1/2 yard
  • Coordinating ribbon for base

Fun Foam for Witch Hats

Instructions:

Paint Fun foam to make a base

Paint your round foam discs with black acrylic paint. The foam will soak up the foam, so apply the paint liberally. For best results, let the paint thoroughly dry overnight.

Cut the tip of the cone to make witch hat

Slice 4 inches off the top of both foam cones.

Insert floral wire into foam to make witch hat

Cut two 12 inch pieces of floral wire and insert them into the top of the cones.

trim foam to make it concave

With a sharp knife shave out the center of the bottom of the cone so it is concave. This will allow the brim lay more naturally.

Glue fabric to cone

Lay the cone on the fabric, roll and trim the fabric to fit around the cone. Trim excess fabric, but leave the top end of the cone fabric longer than the wire. Glue the fabric to the cone. Tuck and fold the fabric over the wire and glue together.

Glue spooky fabric to poster board

Cut out two large circles on the poster board. Then cut out two larger circles out of the black fuzzy fabric. Make sure the fabric circles are larger than the poster board. Hot glue the fabric to the poster board by folding the edges over the board and pressing down.

Make a base out of foam

Glue the smaller disc to the center of the larger disc. Poke a hole through both discs, insert and glue the dowel into the base. Cut a hole in the center of the hat brim. Place the brim on the dowel and slide it down to the center of the dowel. Make a hole in the center of the cone and place on a dowel. Push down hard, inserting the dowel around 3-4 inches inside the cone. Slide the brim back up and glue it to the bottom of the cone.

Embellish the Hats:

Cut decorative ribbon and glue it around both foam layers on the bottom bases. Gather tulle and glue in small sections around the hat brim.

Add glitter to silk flowers madeinaday.com

Dab glue inside the center of the flower and add glitter. Let it dry. Glue the flower on the hat. Repeat with the other hat and that’s it! These hats came out super cute!  What a unique decoration, so different than the ordinary Halloween decor you find in stores this time of year.
