Loving my friend Margy’s guest room! What a cute, inexpensive and easy DIY decor to make for Halloween? I knew this would be a fun dramatic and easy way to make my dining room more festive for the Halloween dinner party we were having. As I get older I feel like I’m getting a bit lazy.
I want a big bang for as little work as possible. Well, this little floating witch hat project was just that a huge statement with just 15 min of work. So if you need these floating witches hats in your life then get ready let’s get started.(you can find them on amazon)
1.Witches hats, you can find them at the dollar store (just FYI they were always out the 3 times I looked there for them) or on Amazon Then I finally found them for 2$ at Target!! Yeah for Target.
2.fishing line and needle
3. glow stick and a safety pin
4. 3M cup hooks 8.99$ from Amazon (I leave mine up all year)
That’s it! So the first thing I did was to cut a piece of fishing line and thread the needle. you need to attach the fishing line to the top of the hat. I just went through the top about a 1/2 down and then tied it off to create a loop it could hang from. I used the cup hook from 3M so that I could easily take them down after the holiday, although I just might leave them up and hang snowflakes from them this winter. See I told you it was super easy if you can thread a needle you can hang these little hats up.
The last step is making them glow, you can do it very simple by adding a glow stick with a safety-pin threaded through the top and attached to the fishing line.
In my case, the glow sticks I bought at Target came with a cord for the kiddies to wear them around their costumes so I just used that and threaded it through the fishing line and tied it. Either way it’s easy to turn the hat inside out to work with the fishing line that you threaded through the top.
When your ready to party you can just crack the glow stick and get the party started. I’ve seen these done with the battery operated tea lights and they just tied more fishing line around the tip of the light. I think whatever you can find that will glow would be darling! And the more hat’s you have the more dramatic your dining room, front porch, or living room will be.
