Mad Hatter Hat & Top Hats

Being part of a committee in my church, I am responsible to help plan and put into action the activities we have every month. At the end of January I had to get my head into the game for our Relief Society Birthday Social - The theme 'T-Party." Click HERE to take a peek at that.

 So I decided to go with the ideas of the Mad Hatter's T-party and his crazy awesome hat. I went with Johnny Depps version of the Mad Hatters Hat. 

First thing first was to google, how to :) and used these directions HERE

I first made a mock hat, which my girls still play with now.
Now, I thought I had saved my pictures in stages :/ I didn't, but I will say this I did follow the directions.

It didn't turn out as smooth as I wanted, but once I got the scarf around it and added the peacock feather and hat pins it turned out great - I think :)

For the hat pins I used thick craft wire and glued broken beads from a few old necklaces. Glue them into place and cover with the scarf. I was going to wear my Mad Hatter's Hat, but gosh, it was heavy, so it ended up on display instead.

I made a mini Mad Hatter Hat as well.
Then I got the bug of making these hats and kept making more Lol

This Black and Red one to our LDS Relief Society Birthday Social
I made it from felt and was light and then I glued it onto a hair band.

Super mini top hat

My homage to my Home Country - Wales :) A Welsh Dragon Tea Cup Hat

  3. Great info! I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have.

  4. Firstly, thank you for your first comment :) :) I'm glad your liking my blog. Although, I must admit I haven't been as productive and posting as all of my creativeness has been taken up with writing a book. Once again thank you for commenting and taking the time to read my blog posts :)
