  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Remove top from ornament. Paint ornament Apple Green with foam pouncer. Let dry and repeat as needed until entire ornament is covered.
  • 2
    Poke a small hole through top of witch hat and feed thread hanger through note that the hanger is glued on separately from the ornament.
  • 3
    Cut entire spool of ribbon into 10 inch lengths. Gather all but 2 of the lengths and use one of the extra lengths to tie the ribbon together in the center.
  • 4
    Turn witch hat over. Place a thread of glue 3/4 inch of the way around the inside edge where the brim ends and the point part of the hat starts. Lay gathered ribbon across the hat and fan out “hair” so it will go 3/4 of the way around the hat (leaving space for where the face will be). Push ribbon slightly so it will stick to the glue. Add another thread of glue over the ribbon and attach to top of ornament.
  • 5
    Cut the remaining length of ribbon into 3/4 inch lengths and glue above where the face will be to create bangs.
  • 6
    Load 3/4 inch foam pouncer with Snow (Titanium) White paint and daub onto ornament for eyes. Let dry and add pupils with Lamp (Ebony) Black paint and 1/2 inch foam pouncer. Add Snow (Titanium) White glint to eye by tapping the end of a small paint handle into the paint and dotting onto the eyes.
  • 7
    Layer two pieces of foam together and cut out to create nose and glue to face; a rounded triangle shape, all sides about 3/4 inch was used for sample. You may wish to cut the edge that will be glue to the ornament on a slight rounded curve so it will glue flush against the rounded edge of the ornament.
