A fascinator is a headpiece, a style of millinery. The word originally referred to a fine, lacy head covering akin to a shawl and made from wool or lace, but mostly feathers. In the modern usage, it refers to a woman’s alternative to a hat for formal attire; it is usually a large hair decoration on a band or clip with elaborate trimmings and decoration like a formal hat and it can incorporate a base to make it a miniature hat.
The Scrap Box has sheets of black filter foam that cry out for Halloween creativity. For this witch’s hat 1 piece will do! As with all of our materials, things come and go so I’ll suggest that you could use felt, stiff fabric, or heavy paper. You will need some black or navy blue lace or netting, some shiny beads, self-adhesive foam, and tape or glue. You’ll also need some small plates or bowls to trace circles.
