Even if you’re new to crafting, you’ll find this pattern straightforward and enjoyable to follow.

Materials Needed:

  • Black felt fabric
  • Cardboard (for creating a template)
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thin black ribbon
  • Sewing needle and black thread


  1. Create the Template: Start by creating a template for your witch hat. Draw a large circle on the cardboard and cut it out. This will be the brim of the hat. To make the cone-shaped top, create a triangle shape by cutting out a wedge from the center of the circle. The wider the wedge, the wider the cone will be.
  2. Cutting the Fabric: Lay the black felt fabric on a flat surface. Place the cardboard brim template on the felt and trace around it. Cut out the felt circle. Then, using the cone-shaped cardboard template, trace and cut out the cone shape from the felt.
  3. Assembling the Hat: Roll the felt cone into a cone shape, overlapping the edges slightly. Use the hot glue gun to secure the edges in place, creating the cone structure. Allow the glue to dry.
  4. Attaching the Brim: Apply hot glue around the bottom edge of the cone. Carefully press the brim onto the glued edge, ensuring it’s centered and adhered securely. Allow the glue to set.
  5. Decorative Touches: To add a finishing touch, wrap a thin black ribbon around the base of the cone where it meets the brim. Secure it with hot glue. You can also embellish the hat with fake spiders, decorative feathers, or other spooky elements.
  6. Optional Sizing Adjustment: If the hat feels a bit loose, you can create a simple fabric band on the inside. Cut a strip of black felt, wrap it around the base of the cone inside the hat, and secure it with hot glue.
  7. Wear and Enjoy: Your easy classic witch hat is now complete! Place it on your head and adjust it for a comfortable fit. Pair it with a black dress, a broomstick, and other witchy accessories for a complete Halloween costume.

Remember, creativity is key, so feel free to personalize your witch hat by experimenting with different fabrics, colors, and embellishments. Enjoy crafting your magical masterpiece!
