What’s more festive than a straw topper?
Piggy backing off the paper plate idea from yesterday, I decided to dress up our Halloween drinks with simple paper touches.
Snippity, snappity, poof!
The leaf makes the orange soda a pumpkin.
To print off a template you can use to trace, click below:
If you would rather print the template onto the paper you are cutting…

Of course this is only helpful if you are going to print your bats on paper that is not black ;).
Now, you may be wondering…”What? No printable for the witch’s hat?”
Don’t have a circle cutter? Trace a mason jar lid ring instead. Trace for the smaller circle, inside the ring. Then trace for the larger circle, outside of the ring.
Next, cut the larger circle in half.
Take one of those semi-circles and roll it into a cone shape. Hot glue or tape in place.
Snip the top of the cone. Using some craft scissors, “punch” a hole in the center of the smaller circle. You can try to use a hole punch, but most standard hole punches cannot reach to the center of a 2 – 2.5″ circle.
Now, take your paper straw and string on both the cone and the smaller circle. Bring the two pieces together and you have a witch’s hat!
Note: Be sure you don’t cut the holes too big. You want a snug fit so that the hat pieces will stay together.
If you do, you could be featured on Jo-Ann’s share site HERE!
Happy craft-o-ween! 😉
