I love the way these look as centerpieces... It would be cheap and fairly easy

you could also change up the ornaments or go without them.

4  MODernly Vintage Hat...With Tutorial in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LookToTheStars on: August 29, 2006 10:56:53 AM
I made this hat for my senior prom. I know that prom isn't until April, but I was excited about making it now and I brainstormed over all of these ideas on how I would make it and had to test it out.

Here is the finished result

Here is a tutorial:

First what I did was cut out an outline on a piece of paper seeing how big or small it was. I cut out sort of an oval shape. Then I made a paste out of one part water and one part glue. There are many ways to make the paste any will do.

Next I blew up a balloon and traced around the paper I cut out with a permanent marker on the balloon.
Then I took some tore up pieces of newspaper and stuck them in my paste, but don't completely soak your newspaper just get it to where it is soaked up.

Now you will fill inside the permanent marker with the newspaper. The paste I made dried pretty fast so I was able to turn on the blow dryer on low and put multiple layers in one night. I would put about Five layers on it and then let it dry overnight.
When you are done letting it dry and it is pretty hard go ahead and peel it off of the balloon.

Next I took some stencil adhesive and sprayed the top of the paper mache then covered it with the material I bought for the hat. Let that dry for a couple of minutes and then cut off the excess.

Now that that is done go ahead and add tulle or whatever you would like to dress up the hat..
