WITCH HAT DECOR


Last year at this time, when I was seeing a ton of Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving decor ideas, I was WISHING I had the time to make something for my home, but I was concentrating on MOVING!

Yep...next week marks a year of moving into our home!

Well...this year, I have decided I need to make TIME for some FUN Halloween Crafts & I have a few things to post about this week!

I was walking through my house the other day, seeing if I had anything on hand that I could turn into Halloween Decor & passed this planter thingy that I scored for FREE a few months back from a Home Decor Closeout. It has done nothing but take up space since & I briefly thought, I wonder if I could cut out the middle & somehow turn that middle part into a Witch's Hat???

To my surprise, it wasn't welded together, it was just sitting inside of it!!! And I plan to use the stand as a base for an end table & use one of my clock rounds as the table top.
 So, I took it outside for a quick coat of black spray paint
& then sanded it down a bit.
 Hot glued some black feathers on one side & took square pieces of crepe paper...

twisted the pieces of crepe paper around the end of a pen...
 and hot glued them around the brim of the "hat"...
to add a pop of COLOR!
 Simple, it only took about 20 minutes start to finish, but I love it because I haven't seen a ton of Witch Hat Decor 
AND...I used what I had on hand, so it didn't cost me a thing!
It is a couple feet tall, so I think it would be cute sitting on top of a pumpkin on my front porch...but I'm TRYING to hold out until Oct to put up my Halloween decor(we will see if I last)

This is so fantastic, I love it! I am "The Halloween Queen" around my parts and I actually have many witch hats in my Halloween decor! I"d love for you to stop over and see what I have come up with. I even have an upside down Christmas tree that I decorate all year round.

You were so creative in taking that and flipping it over, so impressed!

Hope to see you soon! You got a new follower!
