Halloween Party Craft: Witch Topper Poppers

Are you in need of a cute decoration for Halloween that also doubles as a party favor? You are going to love this idea from FamilyFun magazine – witch topper poppers!

In terms of Halloween party crafts, this one is super easy. You can even use recycled materials such as cereal boxes, and you probably have a lot of the other ingredients on hand. Read on to get the instructions!

Halloween Party Poppers

The Brim

1. Trace a 3½-inch lid on black construction paper and a 1½-inch lid once on cereal-box cardboard and twice on white paper. Cut out all the circles, then stack the black and cardboard circles as shown, securing them with a glue stick. With a pushpin, pierce a center hole.

2. For the pull string, knot a 10-inch length of baker’s twine to make a loop with a 1-inch-long tail. Thread the loop through a yarn needle and pull it through the brim’s center hole. Tape the tail ends down as shown.

3. Write Boo! on the white circles. With the twine between them, adhere them back-to-back with glue.

The Cone

1. Trace a 9-inch plate on the black paper. Cut out the circle, fold it in half, and cut along the fold.

2. For the hanger, knot a 10-inch length of twine into a loop. Tape it to a half circle as shown. Roll the paper into a cone with a 2¼-inch opening and secure it with tape.

3. Roll a 30-inch length of black crepe paper streamer and cut fringe through all the layers.

4. Starting at the cone’s bottom edge, use a glue stick to attach the fringed streamer, winding it around and slightly overlapping it as you go. At the tip, trim the excess. Glue the end down.


Set the cone in a paper cup, pointed side down. Fill it with treats. Add a line of white glue around the cone’s edge and add the brim, with the tag side out. Let the glue dry before hanging.

Happy Halloween!
