Martha Stewart Halloween: Decoupaged Witch's Hat

This is a sponsored post. I have been compensated with product, payment, or both for this post. However, all opinions are my own. This post may contain paid links.

I was so excited when I got the opportunity to work with Martha Stewart Decoupage to create something awesome for Halloween. I decided to make a witch's hat for my candy jar.

My excitement increased a hundred fold when I opened my box to find all of these amazing items inside:

I couldn't decide what to make. There were so many amazing choices! But, one at a time...

Materials Used:
-cardboard witch's hat (mine was from Michaels)
-Martha Stewart decoupage paper (I chose one with spiderwebs)
-Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Multi-Surface Durable Glitter Finish
-Martha Stewart Crafts ® Multi-Surface High Gloss Acrylic paint in Beetle Black
-green tulle
-paint brushes, scissors, pencil, hot glue

First take your witch's hat and paint it all black.

Then put a piece of decoupage paper under it and trace around the rim of the hat. To get the inside of the hole, I put some paint on the bottom of the witch's hat along the inside ring. Then I pressed it onto the paper to make a circle. I cut out both circles so the paper looked like this.

Coat the rim of the hat in the decoupage, put the paper on top, and coat generously with the decoupage again. I covered my entire witch's hat in the glitter decoupage. Then I tied a strip of green tulle around it and secured it in place with hot glue.

Then place the hat on top of a candy jar stuffed with sweets (I found one at Michaels).

It's the perfect, simple addition to your Halloween decor. I've had mine sitting in my office.

Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Formulas and Finishes are available at Michaels. All of the decoupage formulas are dishwasher safe (so cool), machine washable (awesome), non-yellowing (love that), dry hard with no tack (I can attest to this!), and can be used indoors or out (phenomenal. I can also attest to this).

Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Formulas and Finishes can be used on any surface such as glass, fabric, paper, metal and wood to create a lustrous finish.

And, because I can't make just one thing, be sure to come back soon to see another Halloween project I made! With all the rain we've been having, I can attest that the Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Formulas and Finishes can stand up to the outdoors!
