What you need:

  • EDUcraft A4 Foam Sheets, 2 packs
  • Made For You 15gm Glitter – assorted colours
  • Made For You Printed 10W Glue Gun
  • Elmer's School Glue
  • Scissors (use under supervision)
  • Pencil
  • Stencils (downloaded from the internet)
  • Optional: elastic or headband

What you do:

1. Cut a large ½ moon shape from the black foam sheet.

2. Roll the shape from one corner to form a cone.

3. Once happy with your cone, use the glue gun to secure the loose end down. Set aside and allow to dry.

4. Using another sheet of black foam, draw a large circle and cut it out using scissors. This will form the base of your hat. TIP: Use the cone that you have just made as a guide for how big your circle should be.

5. Glue the bottom of the cone to the centre of the circle using the glue gun and allow to dry.

6. Cut a strip of orange foam to create the belt band (this should be big enough to fit around the entire circumference of the cone base. Thread the orange strip through a black foam square (you will need to cut slits at either end of the black square for this to work).

7. Secure the belt band onto the base of the cone around the hat using the glue gun. Allow to dry.

8. Embellish the hat with Ghastly Halloween shapes. We have used glitter and foam to create Glitter Bats, Glitter Ghosts, Glitter Cauldrons & Foam Pumpkins.

9. Optional: to secure, attach an elastic or headband to the underside of the hat.
