How to make Tomato Cage Witch Hats
- Place the tomato cage upside down
- Wrap the metal with duct tape
- Place the tomato cage on the foam board or cardboard and trace a large circle around it for the hat brim
- Using a craft knife, gently cut the circle out of the foam/cardboard
- Duct tape the tomato cage to the center of the circle
- Open 2 plastic table covers
- Wrap one of the table covers around the hat brim, securing it with duct tape (rolling and tucking where needed).
- Cut any excess plastic cover.
- Use the second table cover to wrap around the top part of the hat
- Gently pull, roll, and tape the plastic table cover into place, hiding the duct tape as much as possible
- Wrap purple ribbon around the base of the hat. Secure it with tape or glue
- Cut a buckle out of yellow craft foam (the craft knife helps with this) and attach it to the hat using glue or duct tape
A tomato cage witch hat takes about 30 minutes. Depending on the climate where you live, they can be displayed outside or inside! You could also put lights on the inside to have it glow. Put several hats together or even use larger tomato cages to make different size hats. You could even use purple, green, and orange table covers to make various colored tomato cage witch hats. Happy Halloween!
