I have a running joke with a friend of mine that I'd make her a tin foil hat due to our tendencies to indulge a little in conspiracy theories. This past week, she posted on FB that she had seen weird lights in the sky near her house and joked that it might be UFO's. I replied that this time I was serious -- I would make her a tin foil hat and she'd better check her mail next week!  Cheesy I knew I wanted to do something a little more technical than the usual aluminum cone. That's amateur hour. So I made a foil cloche with a gigantic bow!

First I made a sort of helmet out of strips of aluminum. Then I made more strips to ease around the outer edge for the brim. Shiny side out, of course!

Fend off the aliens in style!

Or hunker down in the pantry with your towel, walkie-talkie and flashlight.  Grin

This is freakin hilarious. It reminds me of when we had to make hats for Easter in elementary school.
