This little witch hat favor box is beyond fabulous and also plays three wonderful rolls in our party. First, it acts as a wonderful place-setting for guests at the table. Next, it adds a little modern witch-flare to the candle lite table. And, lastly, it is the perfect little favor for guests to take home at the end of the night.


To make these Witch’s Hat Party Favor Boxes you will need:
black paper
Witch’s Hat party favor box template (download below)
black crepe paper
hot glue gun
candy and treats to fill the box

First, cut the Witch’s Hat party favor box out of black paper. Glue some crepe paper over the hole on the circle. Assemble and fill the cone portion of the Witch’s Hat. Glue the circle shape on top of the cone. Turn the hat over to be circle side down, cone side up. Either leave the favor box as is, or dress it up with a little black crepe paper or tissue fringe.




The crepe paper should hold the treats in place. To open, simply push the crepe paper out of the way with your fingers to reveal the surprise!

A witch must have a witch hat, so a Witch’s Soiree isn’t complete without a witch’s party hat! I made these fun Witch Party Hat headbands for our party guests for a little sophisticated fun.


To make a Witch’s Party Hat you will need:
black paper
witch party hat template
black headband
black crepe paper
glue gun

Directions: First, cut out the Witch’s Party Hat template onto black paper (see download below). Assemble the hat. Glue the top of the hat onto the black circle. You can either leave this part as is, or add a little black crepe paper around the edges. Glue the witch hat onto a black headband. Glue a little crepe paper onto the bottom of the hat over the headband to prevent the headband and hat from snagging onto hair.




To match the party, I encouraged the guests to come dressed in their business casual black best! Because, while most people may think of witches as green and ugly, at our Witch’s Soiree the witches looked modern and fabulous.

I wanted the Witch’s Soiree to have an eerie sophistication, and the easiest way to accomplish that was to keep the color palette a striking black and white.

I also wanted to add candles to set the mood. And, while I considered collecting a couple dozen candle stick holders, I was afraid it would compete with the color palette as well as run the risk of them getting knocked each over too easily. Instead I created my own candle table runner which proved to be easier and a lot less expensive to construct.


To Create a Candle Table Runner You Will Need:
a couple dozen candles of different heights and types
white cardboard piece the size you want your table runner to be (I ended up piecing together two cake boards)
hot glue gun
black net runner (I picked up this one at the dollar store)


First, use a hot glue gun and, one at a time, glue the candles onto the white cardboard cake board. Once you have all the candles glued to the board, drape the black net over the top. One by one, carefully help the net settle around the candle. Be careful not to let the candles burn low enough that they could catch the net on fire.

Monster party games are so much more fun when you have little furry monsters to toss around. Instead of buying monster stuffed animals, you can make your own. Included below is an easy tutorial on how to make furry monsters. Little plush monsters are a great entertainment at the party!


These cute little monsters make perfect game partners for the following party games:
Monster Toss – toss these little monsters into buckets or halloween cauldrons.
Monster Dash – run an obstacle relay race and use the monsters as the relay baton.
Hot Monster – played like hot potato, have the kids sit in a circle and pass the monster around until the music stops. Whoever is holding the monster when the music stops is out.

You will need: furry fabric, craft or wool felt, sewing machine, plastic craft eyes, cotton batting, tacky glue

Directions: First, Cut two same sized rectangles out of the furry fabric & felt. I cut mine to be 5 inches by 7 inches. Place the fabrics together, wrong side out. Sew along three of the edges. You can easily give your monsters different shapes by sewing straight or curved lines into your fabric. I went ahead and curved the top of my monsters. Just be sure to leave the bottom not sewn. Next, flip the monsters right side out and stuff with cotton batting. Pinch the open bottom and sew it closed. Glue the craft eyes onto your monsters and let dry.
