We have a thing for witches! They’re a fun theme for Halloween, and you can easily make them look less scary. We recently shared how to build a witch puppet model that kids will love. We also have a pretty fun toilet paper roll witch craft tutorial. And now this curly-haired witchy diva has joined the club.

How to make a curly paper witch

What you need:

  • printable template
  • pencil
  • drag
  • glue
  • construction paper (any color; we chose blue)
  • colored paper – if you are using a swatch (orange)

Step-by-step instructions

Print out the full-color template or have your kids color the printer-friendly template.

Prepare a sheet of construction paper.

Cut along the outline of the witch’s head.

Choose colored paper to make the witch’s hair. We made this one using orange paper.

It’s best to use regular printer paper because it’s the easiest to bend (construction paper will be stiffer). Instead of rolling, you can also ask your child to fold (zig zag fold); In this case, construction paper works well.

Cut several strips of paper (cut along the long edge of the paper). They don’t have to be the same size. Make them about a “thumb” wide. If you use our template, we’ve included a sheet of paper with cutouts for the strips that you can print on colored paper.

Place the outline of the witch’s head on the construction paper that will be used as the background. Using a pencil (or crayon), draw around the bottom of the head. This will serve as a guide to glue the paper strips on.

Apply glue along the line you drew.

Start gluing onto the paper strip (apply more glue if needed).

Make a hairstyle

For younger children, have them apply the headband at this step. Older children can add it at the end (it will look a little nicer).

Take the first strip of paper, curl/twist it. Apply glue to the end of the paper strip.

And stick it onto the construction paper base. Depending on the type of glue and paper, your child may need to hold it in place for a while to let the glue set.

Tip: if you teach young children, instead of rolling paper, have them fold it in a zig zag pattern. Or just keep your hair straight.

Pretty cool, right? Continue with the other strips of paper, rolling each strip of paper one by one.

All has been done! Your curly paper wizardry is complete.
