Dress up a plain dollar witch hat with ribbon and florals to create a glamorous witch hat for your Halloween decor or to wear!
For Halloween you don’t necessary have to decorate scary to get your point across.
With two little boys around, I tend to go for a more subtle spooky look with a mix of jack-o-lanterns, spider webs, and a friendly ghost here or there.
You won’t find any vampires or zombies in this house. At least not for a few more years!
An easy way to incorporate a not-so-scary witch to my Halloween decor was to go for a “spooky chic” look which is how I came up with this Glamorous Witch Hat.
I love taking something plain and turning it into something wonderful.
Glamorous Witch Hat Supplies:
Plain witch hat (affiliate link)
2 rolls of wired ribbon
Glamorous Witch Hat Directions:
Stuff the witch hat with the plastic bags that you brought your supplies home in.
Shape it so that the hat will stand up and sit on top of the pumpkin.
Select one of the ribbons to decorate the hat.
Run the ribbon from under the brim to the top of the hat.
Glue down. Repeat three more times.
The ribbon will overlap near the top of the hat.
Allow the ribbon to extend a half inch to one inch higher than the tip of the witch hat.
Roll the end of the ribbons together and glue together.
Since the ribbon is wired you can manipulate the end to fold over to make a crook in the end of the hat.
Take the second ribbon and wrap it around the base of the hat, gluing as you go.
To make the ribbon appear wider, wrap the ribbon around the hat again, but start wrapping at the top of the ribbon you previously added.
Pinch the top of the ribbon so that it looks snug against the hat.
Make a bow and glue it to the center of the ribbon wrapped around the hat.
It’s already starting to get that glamorous witch hat look!
Slide the Halloween pick between the ribbon and the hat.
You don’t even have to glue it down!
It will stay in place.
Cut the mums off of the bush leaving ~3 inches of stem.
Pluck the mum off of the end of the stem.
Add the leaves to the stem then place the mum back in place.
Tuck a couple of the mums under the bow.
You do not need to glue these down either.
That is one glamorous witch hat, don’t you think?
You could easily go with any color scheme.
And I love the chevron ribbon with the chevron pumpkin.
A little not-so-spooky Halloween decor goes a long way!
Do you go all out scary or just a little spooky?

I love your beautiful hat, Michele! It makes a wonderful centerpiece, but I would also wear it to greet the trick-or-treaters!
