Generally I do not post personal stuff here on my blog. However, even though this is of a personal nature, it is also on the crafty side of the house as well. LOL
Monday I attended a fund raising event that that is held annually for a hospital in my area. The proceeds aid breast cancer. The event always has various vendors selling jewelry, hair accessories, scarves, gloves, home decor for Christmas, make-up and so many other things. Besides vendors selling great items, there is a silent auction, a luncheon with yummy food, a fashion show and an award is given to the person with the most unique hat.
Unique hat ........ music to my ears. LOL
Well since I have made this type of hat before, I decided to make another with a winter theme. I made a fascinator. Not familiar with a fascinator?? You know, those cool little hats we see the English ladies wearing - those are fascinators. Well I won the prize for the most unique hat. I won a GC and an oh so warm throw that my cat seems to have taken ownership of already. LOL
Here is a pic with the hat on me at the event.
Here is a closer view of the hat. This was hard to photograph.
Definitely harder than photographing a card. (LOL)
I used tulle, wire, snowflake foam stickers, fun foam snowflakes (cut from my AccuCut die) used at the base of the hat. I also used a blue glittered drink koozie, (yep a drink koozie, you know one of those drink can holders), white glitter paper,
snowflakes used for home decor and a plastic headband.
A little hot glue and a snip here, a twist of wire there and vwela - a fascinator.
This took me about 1 hour to make and I love the way it turned out. Hope you do too.
ps. here are links to 2 other hat projects I've done
