I have seen these fun hats in so many stores that are more than I am willing to pay for paper and some embellishments on top of a pumpkin that I can get for 98 cents at Walmart.
All you need to is:
print outs of the pumpkin hat templates
another thank you to aimee from sprik space for the pattern pieces
tacky glue and/or tape
some fun yarn

another thank you to aimee from sprik space for the pattern pieces used for the backgrounds.
Cut out the hat, strip of paper for the fan and the circle.
Start folding the strip of paper back and forth.
Glue (or staple) the ends together so it forms a circle.
Lay the zig zag circle on the table and push flat
Glue the circle on top and hold it down for a few seconds.
To make the hat, roll the edges to form a cone and tape, staple or glue one side on top of the other.
Glue your yarn around the bottom edge of the hat - I went around twice to make the trim thicker.
To make the pom pom for the top:
Wrap the yarn around 2 fingers (3 if you want it thicker) about 20 times.
Gently pull off your fingers and place in the middle of a strip of yarn.
Tie a knot around the middle of the bundle with the strip of yarn.
Cut the loops on either end and fluff to make a pom pom.
Glue your pom pom on top of your hat and put on your pumpkin!
