Last Updated on February 19, 2024 by Kimberly Crawford

Conjuring up this charming witch’s hat wreath, right, doesn’t require casting any difficult spells. Simply cut its shape from a piece of lightweight wood, and doll it up with decorative moss and ribbon.


  • Witch Hat pattern
  • Lightweight wood, such as basswood, balsa, or thin plywood
  • Jigsaw
  • Sandpaper
  • Preserved moss
  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
  • Decorative ribbon
  • Decorative ornament


Enlarge the Witch Hat pattern; cut out. Trace the pattern onto a piece of lightweight wood and cut out using a jigsaw or fine handsaw.

Sand to smooth any rough edges.

Arrange preserved moss to cover the entire wood hat; adhere using hot glue.

Cut a piece of ribbon 3 inches longer than the width of the hat just above the brim. Position the ribbon on the hat; wrap the ends around to the back and secure with hot glue.

Use a different ribbon or decorative ornament to make a square buckle, and glue it centered on top of the first ribbon.
