Easy make and wear little fancy hat

If you don’t want to don an entire costume this Halloween, then why don’t you just wear a little fancy hat. Hair clips under the brim hold it secure on your head.  It’s sure to be a conversation starter and it’s just the kind of project I like—quick and easy!

You will need:

Small black doll hat (available in craft stores)

Fancy feather

Small amount of decorative trim to fit around the hat

Rhinestone in coordinating color

Tacky craft glue

 Two metal hair clips

1.     Measure around the hat and cut some decorative trim to fit.  Draw a bead of tacky glue around the hat and attach the trim. 

2.     Add a dab of glue where the trim ends meet and attach a fancy feather, placing it so that the feather curves up on the hat. Let dry a bit and add some more glue on top of the base of the feather and attach a rhinestone.

3.     Turn the hat over.  Attach a metal clip with some glue on each side of the hat and let dry.


  1. Cute! I don't know if the clips would work for me, but maybe an elastic?!

  2. This is so cute! I'm actually pinning this for my daughter, who loves fascinators. She's going to be in craft heaven!

    Found you on Pincushion Parade's Wednesday link party.
