I’ve been having so much fun sharing some awesome Halloween projects with you this week!

Yesterday, I had a cute DIY Mummy Halloween Card or Invitation. Today I have a cute hat, and tomorrow, I’m sharing tips for throwing a Halloween Crafting Party.

With my niece visiting in a couple weeks, I’ve got Halloween on the brain.

I’m not sure if I’ll dress up or not, but I thought it would be fun to make something I could wear. This DIY Mini Witch Hat Headband was exactly what I had in mind!

When I was a kid, my mom always made my costume … although there was one year my sister and I rebelled and demanded a store bought costume with a plastic mask.

My favorite costume that she made was a pumpkin costume that I wore as a kid and again in Jr. High.

I’m not sure how it still fit me as a teenager, but somehow I squeezed into it!

I don’t think I’ve ever dressed up as a witch for Halloween though.

I’ve been a milkmaid, Dolly Parton, Pippi Longstocking, and more, but never a  witch. How is that even possible?

So for this project, I finally got to channel my inner witch … ha!

Isn’t this DIY Mini Witch Hat Headband adorable? It’s basically a fascinator for a witch … a fancy witch!

These DIY Mini Witch Hat Headbands are so simple to put together. You need to use a glue gun, so if you’re making these hats with a kid you’ll have to help them out.

Decorating the hat was my favorite part! I was originally going to go traditional, but then I decided to add a bow and ribbons instead. I love how it turned out.

Of course, you can decorate these DIY Mini Witch Hat Headbands any way you’d like.

So pull out your glitter, stickers, ribbon, and whatever else you have in your stash and have fun with it!

How to Make a DIY Mini Witch Hat Headband

Want to make your own DIY Mini Witch Hat Headband? Here’s what you’ll need:

Start by printing the template on white cardstock, then cutting it out. Make sure to print the template at full size, otherwise your hat will be even smaller.

Next, place the template on the black cardstock, trace around it using the gel pen, and cut out the pieces.

Fold over the flap on wedge shaped piece, then cover the flap with double-sided tape.

Roll up the wedge to form the hat, then press the tape-covered flap against the inside of the hat to hold it together.

Apply hot glue around the inside edge of the hat, then center it on the circle shape and press together.

Tip: since hot glue dries fast, I found it easiest to add a line of glue around the hat, then go back over the first line with another line of glue. The first line of glue will hold the second line in place, and you’ll be able to move faster. You don’t want to flood it will glue though or it may show on the outside.

Now comes the fun part … decorating the hat! I used ribbon, but you could use glitter, stickers, washi tape, and more. Get creative!

To make this bow, I created two big ribbon loops (held together on the ends and in the middle with hot glue). Next, I glued the loops together on an angle and added a smaller loop in the middle.

Then, I layered four pieces of ribbon together for the fringe, also held together with hot glue. I wish I had spread the fringe out a bit more to show off the different ribbons.

Finally, I glued everything to the hat with more hot glue. It was super easy.

Finally, attach the hat to the headband with hot glue.

It helps to look in the mirror before committing so you can play with positioning. I attached mine on an angle, but you can put the hat anywhere on the headband you’d like.

Obviously, do not put the headband on your head until the glue is totally cooled!
