    Witch Cupcake Stand:

    1. Hat: Paint one 2-inch, 3-inch, 3.5-inch, and 4-inch clay pot black. Glue together with quick grip to form pointed hat shape.

    2. Paint the 5-inch clay pot as the witches’ face and the 6-inch pot as her body (this pot will sit upside down). Glue head to body.

    3. Hair: Cut (7) 18-inch long pieces of 1.5-inch wide orange ribbon. Cut (7) 9-inch pieces of floral wire and glue one wire down half of each piece of ribbon in the center. Fold the ribbon in half and secure with glue. (You will end up with ribbon that is 9-inches in length and has a wire down the center.) Roll up the folded edge in a curl.

    4. Glue the (7) 9-inch ribbon pieces around the back of the witch's head by folding the ribbon over the edge. Create bangs by folding small pieces of ribbon in half and gluing along the front of the top, above the face.

    5. Glue two 12-inch cake boards together for stability. Cover top with scrapbook paper and cover edge with 3/8-inch wide ribbon. Glue to top of head making sure to center it. Glue pointed part of hat to the center of the cake board.
