These adorable little hats can be hung on the wall, added to wreaths, used as gift bag tie-ons, or as refrigerator magnets. You can also make a few to sell at a craft fair. They are easy to make and allow you to make use of all the bits and pieces of leftover craft materials you have lying around.
The hats, themselves, are relatively inexpensive if you buy them at a craft store, but check yard sales for even cheaper ones. That's where I found mine.
Crafting Time: 30 - 45 minutes
small hats - straw or lace
scraps of ribbon or pre-made bows
small silk flowers and bits of baby's breath
bits of lace fabric trim
pieces of pre-strung beads
craft glue or a glue gun
magnetic tape (optional)
Arrange the flowerheads, baby's breath, bits of lace, and beads on your hat.
When your arrangement pleases you, glue your pieces into place.
Glue a loop of ribbon to the back of those you wish to hang or use as gift tie-ons.
Glue a piece of magnetic tape to any you want to use as refrigerator magnets.

Here are questions related to Decorating Straw Hats.
I would tie a ribbon about 1 inch wide around it like for a hat band and tie it in a bow with streamers hanging, like a woman would wear it with the streamers hanging in the back. Then glue some silk flowere wherever you would want to on the hat. It is more of matter of how you like the appearance rather that what a book might show.
