I made one of these when I was in the Brownies (a greater number of years prior than I want to recall), and I have recollected the fun of making it each Halloween since.

How to make it:

2 bits of firm dark paper. The size of card required relies on whether the cap is to be worn or only for enhancing purposes. On the off chance that you are wanting to wear the cap, you will most likely need A2 size, or you could tape more modest sheets together.
PVA paste or twofold sided tape
Beautifications of your decision

The most effective method to make it:

Make a cone shape by moving the paper, long edge to long edge. The highest point of the cone will shape the highest point of your witch's cap, the base end will sit on your head. Stick along the edge to keep the cone intact. You will be left with a lopsided edge at the wide, open end; trim this off to make an even edge.
On the second piece of paper, draw a huge circle and painstakingly cut it out.
Involving the wide finish of your cone for size, draw and cut out a more modest circle from the center of the bigger one.
Cut vertical cuts, around 2 cm long and 2 cm separated, by and large around the base edge of the cone. Crease these outwards to make a level edge - your cone ought to now have the option to stand up all alone.
Place the huge circle (presently with an opening in it) over the cone to make the edge of your cap. Check it fits prior to applying paste (you could have to change the edge to fit - you can do this by slicing it to make an initial which you can then cover and paste to make the edge fit all the more cozily around the cone).
At last, pick your designs! An enormous piece of my memory of making this cap was taking a walk ahead of time to scrounge leaves and berries from hedgerows, which I then stuck all around the cap, yet you could stick on creepy paper shapes or biodegradable sparkle all things considered.

2. Halloween Paper Chains
