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*
