"With Halloween being just around the corner, these festive decorations are sure to please. We love easy Halloween crafts for kids and this is one of the cutest. This easy and fun craft is a cute decoration for kids’ Halloween parties. We made some to tape to our kitchen door to celebrate fall! We used green paper plates, but of course kids could paint white paper plates green. To make a paper plate witch you need: green paper plates, black and orange construction paper, wiggly eyes, a black permanent marker, black yarn, tape, and white school glue."

Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts


Materials List

  • Green paper plates (or white paper plates and green markers or green paint)
  • Black and orange construction paper
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Black permanent marker
  • Black yarn
  • Tape White School Glue


  1. After gathering the supplies, invite children to cut 8 strands of black yarn. Tape the strands of yarn to the paper plate.

  2. If kids want their witches to have thicker hair, simply add more strands of yarn.

  3. 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.

  4. Tape or glue the hat to the top of the witch’s head.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
