Spooky Witch's Hat

This is a quick Halloween project I made a few weeks ago using one of the Kraft Gift Boxes from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I just simply covered the box in the First Edition DSP.  The little greeting on the front of the box is from the Grateful Greetings Stamp Set.  It is layered on a piece of Sticky Sheet covered with orange glitter.  I also add a Paper Daisy behind it.  The witch's hat was simply made by cutting a 10 inch circle in half and folding it into a cone.  I cheated and used my Cricut to cut the circle, but you could easily trace around a dinner plate or anything that's about 10 inches in diameter.  The smaller the circle the smaller your hat will be.  However, before I made the cone, I spritzed my DSP with water and wadded it into a ball.  I then let it dry.  Once it was dry I inked it with Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink.  I also fringed the bottom of my cone all the way around and fanned the fringes out.  For the brim of the hat I just used a 3 1/2 inch circle cut from Basic Black Cardstock.  I folded it in half and cut a circle out of the middle.  Finally, I added some snail around the circle I cut out, placed the cone in it, and pressed the fringed pieces to the bottom of the brim.  I also added a dyed feather and a Paper Daisy to the hat to finish it off.     

I still have a few more Halloween and Fall projects to share.  I'm hoping to really start working on my Christmas projects and gifts in the next week or so.  I have most of my Christmas shopping done and I'm already getting into the Christmas Spirit.  lol  Normally, I have my Christmas Card design done by now, but I'm a little behind on that this year.  We've had lots going on in the Sampsel Household.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.  Take care.
