Felt Witch Hat DIY with Dyed Feathers

This project was exceptionally fun to make because it brings together two crafts that I love, FELT and dyeing all the things. The ostrich feathers have been in my craft stash for YEARS waiting for the perfect use and this definitely met all expectations. Not only did the UNICORN SPiT®  dye them a gorgeous purple color but the Fabri-Fuse adhered them to the felt perfectly. A Felt Witch Hat like this is one of a kind!

Materials and Supplied Needed for Felt Witch Hat DIY

This list of supplies could be changed to meet the needs of the witch hat of your dreams. Different colors could be used as well as different feathers or trims.

Directions

Start by prepping your E-6000 FabriFuse. When it is first opened, there is a protective seal that must be removed. My favorite way to do this is with the end of straight pin by sticking it in then pulling the covering gently off with the pin.

Step One

The first step for this felt witch hat diy is to dye your feathers or trims and allow it time to totally dry. This is best done the day before actually making the project. For this witch hat, the trim is dyed with a mixture of Unicorn Spit and HOT water.

UNICORN SPiT® is a magical art medium that creates the most amazing masterpieces. Mix the Unicorn Spit with water in a shallow dish then gently place feathers or trim in. Wear gloves if desired to push the trim down under the water and make sure it gets totally covered. Leave the trim in until dyed to the desired color then lay out on paper towels to dry.

Step Two

To make the witch hat, cut a circle the size of the base you want, It works to use a pan lid or a larger lid from a garbage can too.

Step Three

To make the top of the felt witch hat diy, cut piece of black felt into a wide triangle shape then round the bottom a bit with the scissors. This can be done in different sizes depending on whether you want it to be tall or short. It can always be trimmed down once the glue has set.

Put a thick line of Fabri-Fuse down one side then wrap around the other and press together. The glue is going to take a bit to dry. Clip can be added to hold the piece together while moving to the next step.

Step Four

Glue the top of the hat to the base with the Fabri-Fuse. Don’t worry about using too much. It will soon be covered with trims AND it will dry clear!

Step Five

Add the dried dyed trims and any other trims of your liking. The ostrich feather trim is perfect for this felt witch hat DIY. Let the E-6000 Fabri- Fuse dry overnight before using the witch hat for decorating.

This felt witch hat project could be done in so many different sizes and colors. The possibilities with all of the colors of UNICORN SPiT® .
