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)


  1. Arrange the flowerheads, baby's breath, bits of lace, and beads on your hat.
  2. When your arrangement pleases you, glue your pieces into place.
  3. Glue a loop of ribbon to the back of those you wish to hang or use as gift tie-ons.
  4. Glue a piece of magnetic tape to any you want to use as refrigerator magnets.

So adorable and I am thinking how absolutely adorable a wreath would be made out of these.
