Hi again, I hope you are here for my tutorial! I made a Witches Hat with Treats for the Twisted Tuesday challenge and here are the instructions. I took some pictures while making it so I am posting those with measurements and directions.
First of all decide how big/high you want your hat. I wanted mine little so I started with a circle of 9 1/2". This tutorial is using an 8" circle so the hat will be slightly smaller but not much. This 8" circle will make a hat that stands 4" high. (My hat stands 4 and 3/4" high) I suggest filling it with some small candies in a cellophane bag. (like M&M's)
Start with your circle:
Take your circle of whatever paper you are using and cut it in half. The height of your hat is the measurement of half the circle diameter--in this example, as you can see, it is 4".
Fold your paper into a cone.
The bottom edges should look like this picture below. Stick your cone sides together when you have it just right. Use a strong tape, I used double sided sticky tape from Stampin' Up!
Next you will measure the bottom circumference of your hat. As you can see this one is about two inches wide. I will now make a base that is about 1/2" bigger on each side which makes my base measurement a 3" circle.
Next I will cut some strips of paper for my ruffled hat edge and use a scallop punch to give the edge a decoration. I cut my strips 1 and 1/4" wide. You will have to decide how wide to cut yours to make it look right.
After I cut two strips, I accordion folded them and stuck them together to form a circle.
Now I have my cone shape, my folded strips, (I only used about 1 and 1/2 of the strips, make yours as desired) and my base circle.
As you can see below-I hope you can see this okay, I then put double stick tape around the edges of the base so I can stick down my folded strip. The cone shape is just sitting there and never stuck down. I found that the folded strips hold it in place. I stuck the folded strips down around this cone shape so it would sit right and the strips would be equal around it.
After sticking the folded strip down I decorated the hat and filled it with candy.
Thanks for visiting! If you have any questions just leave a comment and I will get back to you.
