Step 1

Make the Shape of the Witch's Hat

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 03

Fold one construction paper vertically. Make note of the dashed lines.

For this instruction, I've chosen violet as the base color but it can be another color of your choice.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 04

Fold the paper diagonally as shown in the picture above. This will aid you in getting a perfect cut.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 06

Unfold the paper. There should be a crease mark that will be useful when using the scissors.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 07

Cut as indicated by the dash lines. Use the crease mark as a guide.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 08

Unfold the larger piece of paper and discard the the other one.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 09

Fold the rectangle upwards as shown in the instruction.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 010

Good job! You have made the Paper plate witch hat. Now, it's time to decorate our witch hat.

Step 2

Decorate the Halloween Paper Plate Witch's Hat

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 012

Draw some details at the base of the triangle. In making the hat band, think of making a belt. Our spooky friend will go to Halloween in style.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 014

In our hat, we used black and yellow paint. What will yours be? Brown and silver would also look good.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 015

Time to add more details to our craft. You could use different art materials for making the decorations such as glitters, crayons, and paint.

I used stickers arrayed in a random pattern for my paper plate witch's hat.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 016

Excellent. You are halfway through making the witch paper plate.

Step 3

Give the Paper Plate Witch Some Hair

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 01

Paint the paper plate green, although you could choose another color. Green seems a spooky color for a face.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 02

Mark eight spots to which you will use your puncher to make holes. Space them correctly as this will be the place to insert the hair of our witch.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 017

After using the puncher, our paper plate should now look like the image above. Next, get a length of yarn. It shouldn't be too long or too short.

Now, keep on folding the yarn in equal lengths until it can't be done anymore.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 020

The yarn should look like the one above. Then insert the end of the coiled yarn into one of the holes.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 021

Make a knot on the unpainted side of the plate to seal the yarn/hair in place.

Tip: You can ask an adult to help you on this part or you could a pencil to assist you in the task. Be careful.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 022

Flip the paper plate and start working on the other holes next.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 023

The front side should look like the image above. Continue repeating the steps until all holes are filled with hair.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 024

You are almost done with making the hair!

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 025

You have successfully made the hair's witch. Next we will complete the face of our character.

Step 4

Make the face of the Witch

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 026

Add the googly eyes with some glue.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 028

Draw and paint pink circles for the cheeks. Of course, other color options are alright as well.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 029

Add the nose with a black marker or pentel pen. I choose a simple triangle nose for my witch.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 030

Draw a simple smile to complete the face.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 031

Good job! You are close to making this Halloween art piece.

Step 5

Bring the Hat and Face Together

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 032

Join the hat and face together with some glue. Doing so would complete our paper plate witch.

How to Make a Paper Plate Witch - Step 033

Congratulations! You have made your own Halloween sorceress. Now, you can let your kids display their crafts as decorations come Halloween.

Extra Tips

  • The longer the yarn the thicker the hair would be. Try to make the length of each yarn even so that the thickness of each strand would be the same.
  • Instead of circles for the cheeks try to explore other shapes likes stars or crescent moons.
