I totally love project runway (I'm sure I'm not alone!) and I totally love this challenge!  I wanted to make something with these guidelines-----1.make everything you see in my project edible items and 2.stay away from the table cloths!  So I used grape tomatos, cucumber, a little lettuce, wire and fishing line. 
here are my supplies:



i only spent about $6.00!

I took each tomato and threaded them on to the wire to make the hat part.  Then took the fishing line and connected all of the wire tomato rings.  And then I sliced a tomato and cucumber then added some lettuce around the edge to make the broach!  Here are some pictures:
 
One FAB hat!!!


 


some close ups





i just tought this looked funny--hanging out in the fridge on top of a bowl



I had so much fun doing this challenge---but my head was kinda sticky and smelled like a big tomato when I was done!  But it was totally worth it!  Thanks for looking and don't forget to vote!

*************************UPDATE******************************

ok so i didnt want to be wasteful with my edible hat so...i hung it in a tree so the birds and squirrels could eat the tomatos!  (dont worry i clipped all the fishing line out so no animal would eat it by accident) here is a picture of it in the tree!!!

What a cute idea!!!  LOL  I love it.  You could wear it out, and if you get hungry, just reach up and steal a tomato from the hat.  *giggles*

if i were you, i'd wear it out, like to the bookstore or something, stand close to a group of people, read some magazines, when you feel like a lot of people are looking at you, fumble in your purse, pull out the ranch, pluck a tomato and eat some. Cheesy  hehehehe

you are awesome!

Haha, delicious, fabulous, and hilarious - good combination!  I do see one downside, though; if I saw you on the street, I think I would have an overwhelming need to eat your hat (which would be very awkward, indeed).

wow, it's really pretty!
you should make another version with plastic food, and wear it places for real.
not sure to where, but there must be somewhere that calls for a hat like this.  i mean, it's great!

I really love this! I adore that it is so perishable and entirely not practical... IN  A GOOD WAY!  the "flower" is really pretty! I think that this is perfect for this challenge! I can't imagine how horrible it was to have this on your head (the smell of tomatoes makes me want to vomit) but I love it so much... You have my vote for sure!  Grin
