Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with some fun Halloween décor. When you think of the We R Memory Keepers DIY Party Board, you probably are not thinking you can make decorations with it. But check out how easy it made creating these witch hats!
Each of these witch hats was made from the Mini Party Hat setting on the DIY Party Board.
Once again, We R Memory Keepers does an amazing job of labeling their tools! The size of paper needed to create a Mini Party Hat is listed on the board. In this case 6×6.”
It also lists which cutting guide to use (C). And which notches to place the guide inside. I could not get any simpler. The paper will need to be cut twice. Align the guide and make your cut by sliding the blade in the grooves. Repeat for the second cut. I have found that the smaller, second cut, does need more help in holding the paper in place because the guide is covering much less of the paper. Use your other hand to keep the paper in the bottom corner when making the smallest cut.
A sturdy adhesive will need to be used to hold the party/witch hats together. The Red Tape works really well. I placed a strip of adhesive on the edge of the front. Then a second strip of adhesive on the other edge, but on the back side of the paper. When you roll your paper together, the adhesive will help keep both sides in place.
Roll the paper together, keeping it flat on the table. By doing this your witch hat will sit flat.
Cut a strip of patterned paper to ½” by 6.” Apply this to the bottom of the witch hat, once again, holding everything flat to the table. I found that placing the adhesive strip along the bottom helped keep it in place. The paper you wrap around the bottom will not lay flat against the cone of the hat. But its ok.
Patterned paper was cut into a circle. I then glued the cone to the base of the hat with a hot glue gun.
Each of the hats was decorated with various stickers and ephemera from the Pebbles Midnight Haunting collection.
The mix of flat stickers and puffy stickers added fun dimension to each witch hat.
Where will you use your handmade witch hats this Halloween?
