Easy paper Halloween witches craft for kids

Easy paper Halloween witches.

Ok Ok, i know.. ANOTHER paper cone craft! But we’ve just been having so much fun making these. It’s awesome just how many designs you can make from them. These little easy paper Halloween witches might just be my favourite so far, they’re so adorable! We made ours friendly witches but you could alter yours to have any kind of expression you like. We’ve stashed these in the cupboard ready for Halloween when were going to hang them up in our conservatory. Why not give them a go?!

You will need

  • Coloured/black card
  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers
  • Eye stickers (optional)

Take a piece of A4 paper and fold it in half to make a card shape. Then, take a pencil and draw a gradual curve starting from just above the centre of your fold line to the bottom right corner (you’ll need to make sure the curve isn’t too sharp or it won’t match up when folded). Cut out your shape.

Fold your shape in half and trim off any excess to make sure both sides are even.

Open up your shape to reveal your 4 sections. Cover one of your end sections in glue

and then pull it round and stick it down on the back of your other end section to create a triangular cone.

To make the curly hair..

First you’ll need to cut out a circle for the face. Then, Cut out 4-6 long strips of coloured paper. Roll one end around and pen to give you the curls

and then Glue the curls down equally on either side of your face circle.

To make the straight hair..

Cut out a round circle for the face. Then, cut out a slightly larger circle from your hair coloured paper. Glue your face circle on to the hair circle…

and trim your hair to your chosen shape.
