Form Cone for Hat
Roll one foam sheet to form a cone (Image 1). Place cone on child's head to make sure it will fit; if not, adjust the size. Draw a straight line with a ruler and pencil to mark excess foam to be cut (Image 2). Use scissors to cut off the excess foam then trim along the cone's bottom to make it straight (Image 3). Apply a dab of hot glue where foam overlaps at tip and squeeze until glue cools (Image 4). Apply a small bead of hot glue down remainder of seam and press overlapping foam onto it (Image 5). Hold in place until glue cools. Tip: Applying a small amount of glue will prevent squeeze-out.
Create Hat Brim
On second piece of foam, trace around a large dinner plate with a pencil then cut out circle with sharp scissors (Image 1). Set cone on top of circle and center. Trace around base of cone with a pencil (Image 2). Cut about 1/2" inside traced line and remove inner circle (Image 3). Cut 1/2" excess into tabs and fold over to crease (Image 4). Apply dabs of glue inside base of cone and press tabs into glue to secure cone to hat's brim (Image 5). Hold in place until glue cools. Repeat until all tabs are glued to inside of hat.
Tie reserved piece of tulle around hat (Image 1). Secure with a simple knot in back held in place with a dab of hot glue. Cut black ribbon into two 20-inch lengths; these will tie around child's chin and help hat to stay put. Attach ribbon's ends to inside of witch's hat with beads of hot glue (Images 2 and 3).
