To make this craft you will need: (this post includes affiliate links!)
- Green paper plates

- Wiggly eyes
- Black permanent marker
- Black yarn
- White school glue

How to Make the Witches Face & Hair
After gathering the supplies, invite children to cut 8 strands of black yarn. Tape the strands of yarn to the paper plate.
If kids want their witches to have thicker hair, simply add more strands of yarn.
How to Make a Witches Hat Out of Paper
After taping the hair to the paper plate, use scissors to cut a witch’s hat from black paper. Our witch’s hat is a triangle with a rectangular brim cut from black construction paper.
Tape or glue the hat to the top of the witch’s head.
Cut a small buckle for the hat from orange and yellow construction paper. Kids will also enjoy creating witch hats from colored paper or scrapbook paper.
Last, secure the wiggly eyes to the witch’s face with glue. Use the black permanent marker to draw eyebrows, a nose, and a mouth.
