A witch hat template. You can draw out your own, or use mine here.
A glue gun and glue sticks.
Felt in the color of your choice.
Needle and thread in the same color as your felt.
Black paper (optional)
Stuffing -batting, old newspaper or scrap felt works too.
Use your template to cut out the two shapes of your felt. Save your triangle template cut-out. We are going to use this as support for our hat.
Here I took my cut-out triangle template and made a cone shape. This is going to be the point of our witches hat.
Staple the cone at the base. The cone doesn't have to line up perfectly, this is just serving as a base for our felt.
Line-up your template with your cut-out, triangle felt piece and cut-off any extra paper that is at the base of your cone.
I know that I want my witches hat to have a slight bend at the tip, so I roughed up the tip of my template a bit.
Add a line of glue down the center of your felt and place your paper cone template on the glued felt. Wrap and glue the felt around your paper cone and add more glue as needed.
Your hat should look something like this. Cut away any extra fabric or paper. Don't worry too much about open seams at this point.
Make four small half to one inch slits around the base of your cone. Cut through the paper and the felt.
Your cone should now look something like this.
*Tip* make the hole small! You can always go larger later. This is where we will attach the cone to the base and we want a very tight fit.
Take the felt circle you just cut and place it over the top of your felt cone (through the opening you just made).
Your hat should look something like this.
If the fabric of your cone is wrinkling, cut a slightly bigger hole into your circle felt.
Don't worry if you remove the staple. It's no longer needed anyways.
You can also just sew the seam closed if you wish. I just liked the extra texture of all the string. Just make sure to secure the string to the hat often.
If your hat needs more support, stuff the cone with batting, newspaper or scrap felt.
You have just created a felt witch's hat!
