A wizard is a fictional character who performs magic. Often they are pictured wearing a long robe, a pointed hat, and carrying a wand. The Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling have increased the popularity of wizards.The stories feature a young boy and his friends who have many outrageous adventures, while attending a wizard academy.

  1. 1

    Open up the party hat so that it is laying flat on the table. This will be your pattern. The thin cardboard will help to provide support and shape for the hat, once it is complete.

  2. 2

    Glue the felt or fabric to the flattened party hat. Trim the edges so they are perfectly matched with those of the party hat.

  3. 3

    Cut shapes out of the yellow felt or cloth. Moons and stars are the most common shapes. Glue or stitch the shapes to the flattened hat. Add glitter or other designs to your liking.

  4. 4

    Glue the garland or feathered boa along the bottom edge of the flattened hat. This step is optional.

  5. 5

    Put the hat back together. Use a small piece of tap or glue on the inside of the wizard hat. This will help hold it together while you sew the permanent seam down the back of the hat. With a needle and thread stitch the back of the hat together. Just about any style of stitch will work. You can also use a sewing machine, if desired.
