    Cut the Styrofoam ball so that one side is flat, flip the mason jar upside down and hot glue the flat end to the bottom of the jar. Cut 6-8 strips of plaster wrap, each 26'' long. Spray each strip with water one at a time as you drape it over the Styrofoam ball. Continue until the ball and jar are covered and let dry.

    Cut two 6'' x 6'' pieces of black cardstock. Roll each into a cone shape and glue to hold in place. Cover each with plastic wrap and then wrap a piece of wet plaster wrap around the plastic wrapped cone and let dry. Attach the sleeves to the witch's body with hot glue.
