DIY Halloween Hats!

I just LOVE Halloween.  It marks the beginning of a new season with all of the pumpkins and hot chocolate and marshmallow roasting.  Leaves begin to flutter to the ground and suddenly the hot days of summer give over to the cooler, crisper days of autumn.

With 10 little ones over here, I am always looking for some cute new craft to do with them and this year for Halloween I have found these  5 adorable DIY Halloween Hats to make!  The hat templates are absolutely FREE for you to DOWNLOAD and there is also a list of supplies you will need along with instructions for making each hat.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

Ahoy Matey! This Halloween, give your little captain of the sea a hat to complete his look! Simply print out our band and let your kid color in his skull and bones. Crunching for time? Print the colored in black band to save you a few minutes! Your child will be ready to take on the great sea, aka the sea of houses for trick-or-treating!


  • White cardstock
  • Scissors 
  • Hole punch
  • Tape
  • Thin elastic


  1. Print the hat template either colored in or print white.
  2. Cut out the hat. If printing the white hat, have your child color in the hat.
  3. Next, punch holes where marked on the hat. 
  4. Tie or tape thin elastic onto the hat as the head strap, adjusting the size as needed.

For a simple and creative DIY bat craft, try a bat headband! Create your bat headband for your child’s Halloween party with friends or for trick or treating on Halloween night. Read up on bats before they dress up so they can share some facts with their trick-or-treating pals.


  • White cardstock
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors 
  • Glue stick
  • Stapler
  • Thin elastic


  1. Print out the wings on white paper and cut out. 
  2. Print out the two eyes, fangs and nose. 
  3. Glue the eyes, fangs and nose to the center of the headband. 
  4. Fold the edges of the wings about a ½ inch (marked) and staple each side so they have movement.
  5. Hole punch either side of the hat and attach with thin elastic, creating knots to secure.

Now, aren't these super cute and don't they look fun to make with your kiddos?  I thought so too!  Just click HERE to DOWNLOAD all of the templates to make getting ready for Halloween even more fun!
