Witch Hat Vase

posted in: Crafts | 0

 

This is one of the easiest crafts that I have ever done and it looks amazing on my front door.  This is one that you definitely have to try. 

 

Supplies

Witch Hat – with decorations on top of the brim

Flowers – I used 2 bunches to fill the hat

2 Pipe Cleaners – Color to match the hat

Needle & Thread – I forgot to put in the picture

Rubber Band

Scissors

Stapler

 

Instructions

If you are using 1 big bunch of flowers, you can skip this step.  If not, take both floral bunches and hold them together.  Work the stems together so they look like it is actually 1 arrangement.  Hold them together with a rubber band.  This will be at the bottom of the hat and will not be seen at all. 

Now comes the tricky part.  The hat.  You have to bring the back of the brim together in the back and sew it up.

Turn the hat upside down.  Take the two ends at the back of the brim and bring them together.  Use a stapler to hold them in place, then staple approximately 3 inches in all along the brim.

Here is the inside with both the ends of the brim stapled

From the outside of the hat, stitch the had with a needle and thread to hold it secure.  If you didn’t want to stitch together, you could use safety pins on the inside of the hat.  

 

Take the 2 pipe cleaners and twist them together.  Cut two holes in the had just below the brim and on either side of the seam you just sewed.   Put one end of the pipe cleaners in each hole, making sure that the ends are even inside the hat and the middle of the pipe cleaner is on the outside.  Make a loop on the outside of the hat with the pipe cleaners by twisting them together approximately 1 1/2 inches in from the center.  On the inside of the hat, twist the pipe cleaners together and lay flat down the hat top.

This is how the loop should look on the outside of the hat

This is the hook that I used on my front door to hang the hat.  I tried the typical wreath hanger, but the hat wanted to fall forward,  This one works great.

 

All you have to do now is hang it and put the flowers in.  If you have flowers that are to low, crumple up some newspaper and put it in the peak of the hat to keep the flowers a little bit higher.  And that’s it!!  Fabulous and easy.  This is a winner.
