I made this teeny witch’s hat Halloween costume for Elise’s best friend and monkey Ooh-ah (her Angel Dear monkey blankie stuffed animal who you might remember from Elise’s Pink Monkey and Bananas 1st Birthday Party Idea and Free Printable Templates).
Now I was a bit under the gun doing this the night before so I decided to make the witch’s hat out of black card stock and orange ribbon. And the step-by-step photos are pretty dark. But when Elise saw her best friend the next morning dressed up for trick-or-treating she was a pretty happy monkey herself.
The free witch’s hat pattern is sized for an Angel Dear blankie friend so just increase the size on a copier to fit your child’s stuffed animal.

Print out the free witch’s hat pattern and cut out. I fiddled and came up with the free witch’s pattern by first molding the pointy part on monkey’s head and then adding a brim.
Trace your pattern onto black paper, making sure to also trace the interior cut and fold lines.
Fold all four triangles in. You’ll use the triangles to hold the brim to the pointy part of the witch’s hat.
Roll the pointy hat so that the points line up. Place three VELCRO Permanent Adhesive Dots on the inside rim. Peel, stick, and hold until firm. Alternatively, you can use tape or glue but I like how the VELCRO Permanent Adhesive Dots stick right away.
Now I forgot to take a photo of this step – it was a late night. Place the pointy piece on top of the folded triangles. Reach inside and use either the VELCRO Dots or tape to secure. Use either the VELCRO dots or tape to affix the orange ribbon to the inside of the witch’s hat. Tie the hat onto your stuffed animal friend.
