DIY: Altered Witch Hat Centerpiece

 Altered Witch Hat Centerpiece
 This was designed for Plaid!  See our page here.

{{Gather This}}
Paper Mache Witches Hat
Foam Paintbrush
FolkArt Metallics Sequin Black
Torn BookPages
Feather Trim
Paper Flowers


The basic steps for making the hat are: Paint the hat with metallic sequin black paint. Use two coats if needed. Allow to Dry. Tear the book pages into strips. Size them to fit around the pointed end of the hat. Coat the back of each one with Mod Podge, position onto the hat, smooth any air bubbles with your finger and top coat with a layer of Mod Podge. Allow to Dry.

 Lets Embellish!

Using hot glue and Hot Glue Gun Helpers, attach tulle and feather trim around the brim of the hat. Attach Halloween embellishments to the front and brim of the hat. Finish off the design by gluing paper flowers around the embellishments.

Closer look >>>>>Do you see the old earring dangling?  I love using old broken bits of jewelry as embellishments.  Also - The skull cabochon is from my shop.  If you like her, then you might like this project as well>>> Halloween Votive Holder.

 I love how the ornaments add a little pop of color and sheen.
