Free Quilled Orange and Black Witches Hat and Broom

If the Broom Fits Ride It free printable project

I promised I would post the instructions for the 

Quilled Witches Hat and Broom 

I made in this fun project (please click here for the printable) where you can grab the funny quote I used in this project!

Ok, now onto the quilling!
Free Quilled Orange and Black Witches Hat Instructions

The hat begins very similarly to another witches hat I shared, check out the picture and link below!

Quilled Witches Hat:

  • 3 strips of black quilling paper - Rolled to create a teardrop shape
  • Tip: I wanted the hat to be denser, that is why I used so many strips
  • Tip: You can certainly use fewer strips if you'd like, that's the fun of making it yourself!

I wanted to incorporate orange, because I do love the way black and orange look, so I grabbed a few leftover orange strips from another project and, this is what I did:
  • Pulled off a piece and wrapped it around the teardrop
  • This was the fun part, I used these orange strips to create a more cone-like hat
  • They worked perfectly to keep that slightly off center, angled hat that I wanted to create
  • Tip: You can use accent colors and strips to create special shapes in your quilling as I've done here


  • 1 strip of black quilling paper to create a crescent shape for the brim of the hat
  • Glue this to the base of your hat
and there you have one quilled witches hat!
Free Quilled Witches Broom Instructions

The Broom was even easier! 

  • Cut off a 3/4 inch wide, by 3 inches long strip from a brown paper bag
  • Cut fringes into the strip along the 3 inch long side, making sure not to cut through the entire 3/4 inches
  • Roll it to create the bristles of the broom.  
  • The broom handle is a leftover piece of black paper
  • I added the black to the top because I love the contrast
  • Tip: Adding the black cover at the top is more than a decorative choice, it is also a great way to keep the broom together
