Flowered Hat

This is a simple, very inexpensive project that you can make for your own front door, but also makes a great Mother's Day gift for a mom or grandmother.

Ad

Approximate Time: 20 - 30 min. will require additional time if you paint the hat

Supplies:

  • used straw hat
  • spray paint
  • metal ring (optional)
  • wreath wire (optional)
  • silk flowers - can be previously used
  • scissors
  • quick-dry craft glue or glue gun
  • pop-top ring from can, cafe curtain ring, or something similar
  • small piece of wire or needle and thread

Instructions:

  1. Dig out an old straw hat or pick one up at a yard sale. Spray paint in color of choice and allow to dry.
  2. (Optional) Use wreath wire, which is very fine, to fasten a metal hoop to the bottom/back of the hat to keep the brim straight. I used a metal ring I pulled from an old lamp shade (waste not, want not) and it was perfect. Your hat may or may not need this addition.
  3. Cut the blossoms from several silk flowers and glue them to the hat where the "bowl" meets the brim. You can put them all around or just in a selected location. A ribbon bow can also be added, if it suits you.
  4. To add a hanger, you can glue the bottom section of a can pop-top pull, or sew a cafe curtain ring (or something similar) to the back.
