Wow, you're fast!!!  That looks great!! Cheesy

When you're not using it for hats, it would make an interesting art display. Cheesy

oh yeah, and heres an "in use" picture - Im DEFINITELY going to have to weigh down the bottom with something else. I dont have any sand in it yet but after I put the hats on there and messed with it a bit, its just waaay too wobbly. I think the sand will help a lot, but Im going to need something weighing the PVC in the vase - plaster or resin or something, Concrete, even!

(hah love how my hats look all distorted.. theyre just plopped on there, though, and not really smoothed out.)

It looks SO good, Vanilla!

Gosh, wouldn't it be beautiful to have a room full of them?  A forest of hats?

I just happened by this thread as I'm looking for various ways to display my things in my first booth. (Coordinator of the place is impatient, and I'm a perfectionist... it isn't working out well yet...)

This has given me the BEST idea for what to make for the booth. It looks like I can make two and use it around the house for all my millions of hats. xD

I was going to take over the world, but then I got distracted by something shiny.

Thank you for the inspiration!  I made a similar item for my first show last weekend!



I used a cardboard carpet tube that I got for 50 cents and a pot from clearance.  Dowel rods painted black with wooden beads on the ends.  The base was stablized by a steel plate with a pipe rising up from it.  (I have a friend that welds!)  Found out that I needed more sand or larger bucket (or both) so the steel plate was a perfect solution.  The tube goes thru the base of the pot and about two feet up the carpet tube Smiley  Dowel rods are removeable for easy transportation and storage Smiley

Thanks again for your post...it really saved my butt!
