Halloween Pumpkin Hat Craft

Foam hat shaped like a pumpkin top

Sometimes all you need is a hat to set your imagination to work. Start with this pumpkin hat and dress in an orange sweatshirt and orange tights. You could also pin black felt on the sweatshirt as a jack-o-lantern costume.


The tradition of dressing up in costumes originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. Source: History-Ancient Origins of Halloween

  1. Cut the orange foam into six 2″ x 11″ strips
  2. Form one orange strip in circle and glue the ends together.

  4. Make leaves out of the green foam and glue to the top of the hat using the picture as a reference.
  5. Use a pencil to curl the ends of the pipe cleaner and glue to the top of the hat to give it a little pizzazz.
