Materials Needed:
  • 2 1/4″ black ribbon
  • 1/4″ black ribbon
  • 3/8″ Halloween ribbon
  • cardboard or plastic to create templates
  • template to trace for hat circle and cone
  • light colored pencil for marking black ribbon
  • needle and black thread
  • 1 3/4″ single prong salon clip aka alligator clip
  • non-slip grip like Silly Grip
  • hot glue gun
  • lighter
  • protective heat mat
 
Measurements: (and what the pieces are for)
  • 2 1/4″ of 2 1/4″ black ribbon for round hat bottom
  • 3″ of 2 1/4″ black ribbon for hat cone
  • 5″ of 3/8″ Halloween ribbon for bow, cut edges into V shape
  • 3/4″ of 1/4″ black ribbon for bow center wrap
  • 3 1/2″ of 3/8″ Halloween ribbon for hat wrap, cut edges at 30% slant up
  • 4 1/2″ of  3/8″ Halloween ribbon for alligator clip liner
 
Instructions:
  • These are very general instructions, so I hope to be posting a video with more detail as soon as I can.
  • Trace templates for circle and cone onto the pieces of 2 1/4″ black ribbon using a white chalk pencil or light colored pencil so you can see where to cut it.
  • Cut out circle and cone, and heat seal all edges.
  • Wrap cone piece into cone shape and glue into place. (I’ll be making a video shortly showing how to do this, it is a little tricky.)
  • Use scissors if necessary to even out bottom of hat so it will sit flat on the circle, just make sure there are no bumps.
  • Starting in the back of the hat on the crease, glue the 3 1/2″ piece of Halloween ribbon to the hat with 1 dot.  It will still be sticking out on both sides.
  • 1 side at a time, add a little glue and adhere, wrapping it around to the front.  It will not all go on, it will slant down, and you will cut off the excess afterwards.
  • Cut off excess from wrap.
  • As evenly and quickly as possible, line glue around the entire circular bottom of hat cone and then center and stick onto hat circle before it dries.
  • Make bow, and glue onto center front of hat where points of hat wrap meet, thus covering that part up.
  • Finally, determine which way your hat will face and glue onto a ribbon lined alligator clip.
