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
- 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.
Cut out a pointy witches hat and glue it across the top of her head. Now it’s time to give your witch a face! She will need two eyes, a nose and a mouth. You could add some other fun features too – such as some witchy warts! Put your witch’s head to one side whilst you make the other pieces.
To make the wand cut out a black strip for the handle. Then cut out two matching stars (either by drawing around the first or cutting out two at once) and glue one to the front of the strip and match the other up on the back. put your wand to one side for a moment.
To make the broomstick cut out a strip of brown paper. Roll it round and round and glue at the end to make a small tube, make several snips into one end of the tube and open them out to make bristles.
Next cut out two rounded off strips for the arms. fold and glue one strip around the wand and the other around the broom, just as you can see above.
Now all that’s left to do is add your witch’s head and arms to her dress and she is finished, Doesn’t she look great! Why not add some extra decorations to her dress and hat.
