Little Witch Ornament

witch ornament

This little witch ornament is created from a clear plastic light bulb ornament.  I love that craft manufacturers are making these now.  Plastic will not break like glass, and the tops are easy to pop off {they are so easy to work with, and ready to stuff!}  I chose to use a hot glue gun because I love how quick the bond forms. This craft is easy enough for children, but don't have them use a hot glue gun.   Pick a tacky glue that will bond quickly. Or, work with the child.  They will have fun stuffing in the green packing fill, while you operate the hot glue gun.


Where to place this little witch? If you have one of those spooky looking, black wire Halloween trees, then she would be the perfect little ornament.  However, I have found a place for my witch hanging in the middle of my front door Halloween wreath.  She would look cute hanging over your kitchen sink or from a door knob, too!


Materials Needed:   

  • 100 mm long plastic craft light bulb ornament 
  • sparkly green shred (sold near gift wrap; for filling gift bags)
  • black paper shred
  • little black hat (check your craft store near the doll-making supplies).  Mine was 4 inches.
  • Two large googly eyes (mine were Glow-in-the-Dark, bonus!)
  • One green ornament ball or pom-pom for the nose
  • Black sharpie for the mouth
  • Black ribbon
  • Orange ribbon
  • Hot glue gun or tacky glue
  • Scissors
  • Piece of paper to make a cone for filling ornament

Witch Ornament Instructions

1. Below is a picture of the things you will need for this project, along with some helpful Amazon product links:

2.  To begin the witch ornament, remove the top from the light bulb ornament by popping it off.  You need to fill the inside of the ornament with the green sparkle shred. I found the easiest way to do this is to form a cone with a piece of paper to create a funnel.  Place the funnel into the opening of the ornament, and stuff the green shred through the funnel using a pencil to push it down.  Replace the ornament top.

3.  To create the witch's hair, grab a nice handful of the black shred.  While cupping the "hair" in your hand, apply a liberal amount of glue to the surface of the shred.  Be careful if you are using a hot glue gun! Then, press the hair to the back and top of the ornament.  Once it is bonded, you can then work with the hair, adding on more glue where it is needed.

3.  Now, you can give your witch a haircut.  Clip the hair whatever length you like.

4.  The next step is to get her hat secure.  I cut a small hole at the top of the hat.

5.  Fold a length of black ribbon in half.  Tie the ends of this ribbon around the ornament hook.  You should have a loop.

6.  Thread the loop through the hole inside the hat and pull it through.  The loop is for hanging your ornament.  I chose to secure the hat more firmly to the top of the ornament by applying a bit of hot glue.  I also wrapped and glued a small piece of orange ribbon around the brim of the hat.

7.  Next is to create the witch's face.  You can use some creativity here! I bet a polymer clay nose would look great.  Or, you could cut cartoony eyes and a mouth out of paper or felt and glue them on.  I decided to glue on two large googly eyes, a small green ornament ball I had on hand, and drew on a wavy mouth with a black Sharpie.

8.  The witch ornament is all ready for hanging
