Back again in my comfort zone of altering and re cycling! Yes...today's project is a mini hat that I made using empty brown tape ring!
I wanted to make a mini hat with a display on it so that it becomes a cute room décor piece. So, it is a hanging hat!
I have used the beautiful PP from Recollections "As pretty as a Peacock" in co ordinating colors for the top and base of hat.
For the top, I ran the PP through a floral embossing folder from Itsy Bitsy and distressed it by lightly sanding it on the embossed areas .
The lid of the hat is cut from an empty cereal carton and I have this cute stamped image which I colored with distress inks. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and the flowers are all handmade. A closer look at the image and you can see that I have used purple brads for the girls hairdo along with silver stickles.
The net bling gives a classy look to the hat.
Coming to the center ring of the hat,I have tied a pick lace at the base and made the loopy flower with home made twine! yes, it was a plain white twine and I added wild preserves distress inks in spots.
The loopy flower is in 2 sizes and I have layered it with a mini rose center. The while blooms are CLD daisy die and the lily too id handmade using felt and inked around the edges.
The base of the hat or the rim is using CLD doily die and it just fits the size of the brown ring to form a lovely hat!
There you go...my hanging hat is ready and makes a unique décor piece. I plan to make a few more so that it can be hung at various level on the wall.
What do you think???
