Witch’s Hat

The most recent swap I participated in was a witch’s hat swap hosted by Vivian at Viv Out On A Whim.  My partner was Debby from Cozy Blanket {who I actually know in real life, too!}.  I started out with a felt witch hat from Hobby Lobby, some candy corn wire ribbon and candy corn buttons {also from Hobby Lobby}.

I decided to pleat the wire ribbon and use it around the brim of the hat.  I hand sewed this on using black thread.

The candy corn buttons came in three sizes so I selected a few of each size and randomly sewed them on to the cone portion of the hat.

You could make a few of these hats for decorations or Halloween party favors.  I was able to sew the ribbons and buttons on while watching television.

In addition to the hat, we were to also send along some goodies.  I found mine at Cracker Barrel ~ a pumpkin car freshener, this cute little bottle with its own witch’s hat topper, and these pumpkin salt and pepper shakers.

With the candy corn theme going on, I had to send along some candy corn, too.  A little note card and it is off to Debby!

hey, Kath! Deb will love this! I like those buttons- and of course, the "real" candy corn, too. LOL I should check out the Cracker Barrel- haven't been there in years, but their gift area always had some stuff not found anywhere else. give me a ringy- dingy. I stopped in the "flea" last week- I'll have to tell u about it. :-)
