Luminary Witches Hat Decor

I've seen so many wonderful witches hats and one that really stands out is Melanie's over at The Paper Retreat.  I just love how she made and decorated hers it's fantastic.  If you haven't seen it check it out here and while your there check out the rest of Melanie's blog it's just wonderful!!

Well after making the little hat yesterday for the witch ornament I figured I'd make the same hat but bigger and into a luminary.  You can basically follow the same directions that I put up yesterday for the little one, which you can get here.  The only difference is the size and I used the eyelet svg from SVG Cuts Robins Return to join with the party hat to get the holes for the light to shine through.  I also cut out the party hat on vellum for the lining inside.

Party Hat 11.7w
Doily 11.7 with a 5.15 circle cutout in the middle.

Hat is about 7" tall and 11.7 wide

If you make this I would love to see how yours came out, just post to my facebook page at!!

And here it is lit up, you can't see the light that good in the picture but it really is bright.
