Cut a 3″ piece of your 2.25″ purple ribbon. Trace a circle in the center of the ribbon. I used a bottle to make the circle. Cut your circle out and run a lighter around the edge to heat seal the ribbon. This is the base for your witches hat.

To make your witches hat stable, hot glue a felt circle to the bottom. Add your lined clip.

You can easily add other embellishments and materials to give your hat a completely different look.  Glitter or rhinestones will give your hat sparkle!
