Witch's Hat Halloween Decor

Hope everyone had a great weekend! :) We had a very low key weekend, didn't even feel like a weekend, actually! 

Bria and I did a little crafting! I picked up a plain cardboard witch's hat at Michaels a while ago that I knew Bria would have fun with. We used some Modge Podge and some thin Recollections paper to cover the entire hat. I also mixed in some green Martha Stewart glitter to give the hat some shimmer once it was done drying. 

After the hat was dry I took it to my craft room to add some decorations...


I started by putting together a little witch from the Hocus Pocus cut set by My Scrap Chick. I had a bit of a tricky time trying to get this witch together, but I think she ended up looking fine... I added a lot of stitching (with a white pen) to her, along with some shading and some patterned paper from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. And of course I had to add a little crinkle ribbon bow from 3 Girl Jam! This is my addiction right now... if you've noticed there are tiny little crinkle bows on all my projects lately! Oh! And how could I forget... a cute little face from the Princess Faces stamp set by Peachy Keen. 


I used my Banners stamp set by Pink By Design to create my 'BOO' banner. I inked around all the edges with orange Distress Ink and topped the banner off with some Grape Fizz Trendy Twine. I also used a couple pumpkins (also cut from the Hocus Pocus cut set from My Scrap Chick) that I had left over from a recent project. 


I used some green (although it didn't photograph the right color...) sheer ribbon for a large bow and some sparkly orange ribbon (from Michaels) and a button from a thrift store in the center. 

I hope you like my decoration!! :) I'll be linking it up at a few places...
