Since everyone's sunflowers are in bloom now, I thought I would share this craft. Take the straw hats any size you want and paint the center or top of hat brown as in picture, let dry.
What says summer more than a little lady bug. Here is a hat that will make you want to go sit in the garden with a large glass of ice tea and just watch the world go by.
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.
I found a cute set of mini straw hats and then found one that they would fit on and went to town!
First of all, glue down the lace around the hat as in the picture. Glue on the flowers and ribbon using any colors that go with your decor. You can add beads or you could make a holiday themed hat. Just use your imagination.
Just glue on the things you have then tie ribbon around and hang as a decoration. Just use your imagination.
Here's a cute hat made from a straw hat and craft foam.

I need ideas for how to decorate a straw hat for a mother's day banquet.

Ribbon and silk flowers and lace have always worked well for me. Just gather up what you can lay your hands on, and try out various ways. Once I put a large rinestone pin on my garden party hat, and that was a big hit, and it was real, real simple.
Find fake flowers at a thrift shop, rinse them up in the bathtub if you don't have a kitchen sink sprayer, and cut them up to hot-glue around the brim.
I would like to know where I can buy books or get instruction ideas for decorating large women's straw hats for home decor.

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.
