Okay...well I have...and my 8 year old daughter has. So we made one together with things we already have! This project was FREE for us! Minimal supplies needed.
You will need heavy posterboard, thick plastic or lightweight cardboard about 22 inches wide and 11 inches tall. Easy!
Fabric! We had a bolt of white satin...you could use old sheets, curtains or clothes!
Hot glue and accessories like ribbon, pearls or beads!
Easy. Let's get started!
Step 1: The Hat form for the beginning!
I began by making this cone shape WAY TOO TALL!!! Okay, so 11 inches tall was PLENTY! And we went with 22 inches wide. All the while measuring it on my daughters head...fits me too though! :)
Think: Party hat, large Ice cream cone...not dunce cap!
Then taper the sides of your rectangle up slightly. (easier than it sounds, I promise!)
Once I cut it, I wrapped it into a slightly overlapping cone shape and used tape to hold it in place!
I used a sharpie and marked the corner and edge of where it overlapped, so I could match it up again.
Then use scissors to cut the bottom edge to make it flat.
