Halloween Costume With The Cricut EasyPress Mini
My sweet niece is totally in love with baby dolls right now, and wants to match her little dolls as often as possible. She believes I am magic. And, that I can make her anything her little heart desires. Right now, she wants matching witch costumes for herself and her dolls. But, I can’t sew. So, we compromised and made matching witch hats for her and her dolls for right now. Her hat is part of her Halloween Costume, and it was so easy to personalize with the new Cricut EasyPress Mini!
How to Make Halloween Costume Hats
The witch hats were super easy to make, you can find the cut file here. You only need a few supplies to make them, and I bet you already have most of the supplies already.
I wanted to make my niece’s hats from a more rigid felt, and Cricut’s felt was perfect. Since I was limited to an 11.5×11.5″-ish cut size, my niece’s hat won’t fit on her head like a traditional hat, but we will add some ribbon and tie it on or add it to a headband for her to wear.
The doll’s hats will fit more like a traditional hat though.

DIY Halloween Costumes
Open this cut file and size to fit your little one and their dolls.
Send the file to cut.
Don’t forget to mirror the images and place the Iron On on the cutting mat shiny side down.
Preheat the EasyPress Mini. Use the heat setting guide here.
Press the Iron On images onto each felt hat. The EasyPress Mini made this so easy because I could see what and where I was pressing on such a small surface.
Use adhesive to secure the hats into a cone shape, and onto the hat brims. This step can be done with a sewing machine or needle and thread.
Add an X shaped slice to the middle of the brim on the small hats for the dolls. This will allow the hats to fit on the dolls’ heads.
