Hatter Madness: Tutorial 2

So, I'm sure you all remember the tutorial I did for Fascinators and hats not too long ago.  If you don't, here it is.  Well, I made that tutorial before I learned that there were other construction options available to those who don't want to devote a ton of time stitching, starching and wiring.  It seems that there are pre-made hat forms with the clips already attached available from eBay.  All you need to do is decorate them.  Well, don't that beat all?

So now you can make a nifty fascinator in less time, gathering fewer materials and without having to use every craft skill known to man- unless you WANT to.  So here you go!  Hatter Madness Tutorial number 2!

  • 1 Mini-top hat, bowler, tricorn or high top-hat
  • Glue (Locktite or E6000) 
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Some feathers
  • Silk flowers
  • Beads and other decorations

And now the instructions.  You'll be surprised at how easy they are!

  1. Assemble the materials you want to use.
  2. Make a basic design arrangement for your hat.
  3. Glue the items to the hat in an order that best balances the decor and hides any unfinished edges.
  4. Allow it to dry completely (Very important.  You don't want to super glue a hat to your head)
  5. Wear it.
