Paper Plate Witch's Hat Craft for Halloween. Kid's arts & crafts and pretend play

Ever since my daughter made the announcement that this year she was going to be a princess witch for Halloween, she has been talking about all things witch.

“Mama, I need a witch broom.”

“Mama, you need to be a mama witch.”

“Mama, I need a witch hat.”

While we already purchased her witch costume, I thought it would still be fun for us to make a witch hat.

Paper Plate Witch Hat

Paper plate

Paper bowl

Black & yellow construction paper

Black paint

Purple ribbon

Glue (School & hot glue)



As with all of our paper plate hats in the past, we began this one with a paper plate with the center cut out & a paper bowl.


Place the paper plate over the bowl & glue them together.


Paint the paper plate portion. My daughter opted to paint the whole thing. When you are done, let it dry.


While it dries, form the cone for your hat. Leave a small opening at the tip of your cone.


Roll up a narrow strip of paper, about 8″ long, into a skinny cone & glue, tape of staple in place.


Push the skinny cone through the hole at the top of the bigger cone.


Allow about 6″ to poke out at the top. Squeeze a glue gun into & around the edge of opening to glue the smaller cone into the larger one. (Use caution when using a glue gun. Adult operation is recommended.)


Glue the cone over the top of the bowl & bend the tip of the thin part of the cone.


Glue a ribbon around the hat where the cone & the paper plate meet.  Glue it in two sections to prevent bunching.


Cut a yellow square & cut out a smaller square in the middle to form a buckle. Glue it to the ribbon. Cover the seam from the two sections of ribbon.


Squeeze glue all over the hat & sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Let dry & enjoy.

Halloween Paper Plate Silhouette Crafts

I have been thinking about Halloween a lot this week. I realized that I had a little planning to do after my daughter informed me that she would like to be a princess witch this year. September is more than halfway through and Halloween is sneaking up on us quickly. With Halloween on the brain, it inspired us to make a few paper plate crafts. I love silhouettes. There us something so beautiful and haunting about them, which makes them perfect for Halloween. These Halloween silhouettes are an easy craft for all ages.
