I decided I needed a fabulous hat to top off my costume last year...and of course, I wanted to make it myself. I've been challenging myself to use supplies that I already have on hand so I went digging and pulled out an old aluminum pie plate to use for my base. (A recycled cereal box or large plastic lid would have worked just as well.
) The hat came together so quickly and turned out so well that I want to share the how-to...there are a lot of steps, but it's really very easy and only took about an hour. Ready to make a hat?? Gather your supplies...
*aluminum pie plate (or recycled cardboard box)
*spray adhesive (or glue stick, craft glue or whatever you have)
