I’m loving the floating witch hat trend. The only thing missing for me was illumination. Light is everything in holiday decor. I couldn’t find any online I love that were simple and softly lit, so I decided to make my own. They were easy and they turned out perfect if I do say so myself.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step One

Place your tea light candle in your small see-through bag.

Step Two

Cut off a long piece of fishing line. More than you think you will need. This is what you will also use to hang the hat.

Step Three

Run the fishing line through the tie ribbons on the top of the bag and double knot it.

Step Four

Thread the bead onto the fishing line and push it down to the point you want the bag to hang inside the hat. Hold the bead in place here while tieing a double knot around it.

Step Five

Turn the witch hat inside out.

Step Six

Thread the fishing line through a needle.

Step Seven

Poke the needle down the tip of the inside-out hat.

Step Eight

Gently reach your hand inside the hat and grab the needle. Pulling the needle and the top of the hat, return it right side out.

Step Nine

Remove the needle and thread another bead through the fishing line. Push it down to the top of the hat and double knot it.

Step Ten

Hang, turn the tealight on and enjoy!
