I'll try to take a pic when I get a chance.  I just cut one side into a point.

I like the (fake) flowers you chose, they look to me like hydrangeas, which I love.
I thought so, too!  Strangely, they are labeled as "rose garland", which is most definitely not the case.

Thanks, everybody. 

That is amazing! How did you get the idea to use the lid of a trash can??  Shocked
Once I decided on doing a hat, I started hunting around the store for head-shaped things.  I just happened on it.

Shocked Beautiful.  Is it very comfy? or does the lid bind on the head?
It's not uncomfortable.  It is pinned on with bobby pins so it isn't really tight or anything.
24  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES / Retro-style flower hat from a trash can lid (photo heavy) on: April 01, 2008 10:51:44 AM

Here are my materials:

I had some really fugly floral garlands, a weird little styrofoam wreath, a cloth napkin, and a plastic trash can.

Proof of dollar-ness

The main frame of the hat was the swiveling lid of the trash can

I forgot to take photos of the process of making my little frankenhat.  Anyway, I deconstructed the garlands and sewed the flowers and some leaves onto the napkin, then glued on bits of the wreath on.  I trimmed the lid a little, then sewed the napkin around it.  I added a scrap of tulle for the veil, which was not from the dollar store but was probably worth about 20 cents. 

Finished hat:

And now for the action shots:

Veil down:

Veil up, troubled by the discovery that I am indeed mad:

Thanks for looking!

My friend just gave me this bitchin' shirt which is huge and also makes my hips look frighteningly broad (granted, the pants I'm wearing don't help much either.  Also, my giant hips.)

I want to do some surgery.  I've been looking through a lot recons others have done and they're awesome, but I feel like I'm getting too old for some of the popular methods.  I'm generally pretty basic in my clothing - I don't really do ruffles, lace, etc.  Any suggestions?

Awesome!  Whenever I do Sudoku, I always sing that song.  Even though Sudoku only goes to 9, I always sing it all the way to 12. 

Somebody needs to make Teeny Little Super Guy juice glasses.

i graduated '88 from BL.   
i used to work at johns jewelry, and pops burgers, and thought continuum, and am currently employed by ogden city schools, if this rings any bells.
if not, i wont be surprised.  Ogden is still a pretty big place.

My dad was best friends with John's son Kirk.  I think they were also fraternity brothers at Weber.  I didn't actually grow up in Ogden, but both my parents did, all of my grandparents still live there, and I did a year at Weber.  I'm a bit younger - graduated Davis High in '01.

I chose a picture of Nietzsche.  Though many people for some odd reason think it's Mark Twain.
It's the 'stache.  Ubermensch, away!

I'm doing a giant acrylic triptych silhouette of the London Eye and I used Rasterbator to blow up.  Not an actual Rasterbation, but still kind of cool.  I'll post photos when they're done.

I LOVE stories about Ogden and 24th Street, especially during the war.  And how many times did we pass that sign when we were "cruisin' the 'vard"?  Ogden certainly has its problems, but such a rich history!
