Free, Fun, Funky

 We spent some time this afternoon at the Taste of Arts - downtown Fort Wayne. 
At one of the art booths (FAME) I made this classy hat!
Complete with flower! 
I'm enthused.  I can't wait to introduce this simple, inexpensive craft
to some friends.
 First some vivacious ladies molded the crown of the cap to my head
and used masking tape to form a circle around its shape.
Then I began rolling up the edges.  Scotch tape holds the rolls in place.
Last came the flower.  
(Three sheets of tissue folded accordian style,
then in half, tied with string at the middle and "fluffed".)
Parking and admission to the Taste was FREE,
I was a cheap date.
Kudos to my husband/photographer.

  3. That looks like so much fun! can I come with you next time? x

  4. I always had fun making those pointy "marching" newspater hats for my kids. Your hat is so much more stylish. Looks like loads of fun.

  5. Very cute love the hats!! What a great idea :) ~The flower touch is wonderful ~Love Heather

  6. Very cool! It's amazing how something so everyday can be turned into wonderful creativity!

  7. Looks like you had fun... yeah, 'cheap date', I've been on LOTS of those, especially lately. Your hat reminds me of when I was a kid, at the school fair. Ladies made hats out of paper plates and crepe paper and I loved them ! (the hats). I thought they were colorful and I felt so beautiful. Since I've seen your lovely chapeau, I might have to post photos of one I made--but I look pretty darn silly. I'll let you know if I post and I'll link to this post. Okay? Okay!


Hope to return your visit soon! Thanks for leaving a message...
