Torn Cardstock Halloween Witch Hat

I looooove Halloween! And when I got my hands on this Darice witch hat, I knew it screamed the need for some  Core’dinations Cardstock.

Torn Cardstock Witch Hat Supplies:

Step 1: Paint the top and bottom of the hat black just in case any of the base of the hat sneaks through. Basic black craft paint works just fine.

Step 2: Tear different strips of Core’dinations ColorCore cardstock. Paper tearing never gets old! Core is great for this because the color core looks great. For tips on tearing our cardstock, view our videos here. Tear the strips, sand them with Sand it Gadget and white off with Dust Buddy. Using the Dust Buddy is important because it helps the adhesive stick.

Step 3: Adhere torn strips, rotating colors and patterns on the top of the hat and finish off with some May Arts Ribbon.

Step 4: Place on a pumpkin or other decoration.

Jennifer Edwardson here with you today with this little Darice paper mâché flower pot that has been calling my name for a while now!  I LOVE the shimmer of the Gemstones cardstock and decided to create this entirely with all the fun colors I could. Plus, this is a GREAT way to use up scraps.
