  5. Use the bolt to fasten the jug bottom and the cap together.

  6. Remove the red plastic cap from the hanger.

  7. Slip the cap/bolt/jugbottom assembly over the place where the red cap was. The long bolt helps steady the whole thing on the end of the metal piece.
  8. The plastic bottom attached to a shelf bracket.
  9. Attach this assembly to your wall.

I put mine over my windows where the hats won't be in the way. You could paint the hanger or cover it in macrame or polymer clay or even knit a cover for it!

Hats hung on either side of a hanging plant.

I hope you don't mind me brightening up your first picture a bit. The display is very nice and people should see it as it is. If you don't approve, I'm sure Jess will remove my addition.


I remember the days when hats were very fashionable. I do wish wearing hats was en vogue once more.

I can't tell you why, but a woman wearing a man's dress hat is one of the sexiest things I've ever seen.
