October is my favorite time of year! My favorite holiday is Halloween not because of dressing up and scaring's because my favorite color is Orange.. and we all know October has a lot of orange in it. I wanted to show you my Witches Hat Center piece for my table...

How I made this was I first bought a paper mache cone. Then took modge pod and glues Halloweens paper to it. Then I used my pie pan and made a circle for the bottom of the hat .Then I curled the sides of the paper to form more of a hat! Then I added ribbon to the bottom of the cone and then added ribbon around the base of the cone.. Then I embellished the hat using the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge. I thought my hat turned out perfect and all it cost me was 2.49. How cool is that! The paper and ribbon were all in my stash! So I hop I have inspired you!

Thanks for stopping by!
