I just finished my newest creation! Although I won't be working Easter Sunday (the day our customers are encouraged to wear an Easter-themed hat in order to win gift certificates and other prizes), I do work tomorrow, Saturday. I'm also stroking my chin and contemplating lending it to a co-worker for Sunday.

My Easter "bonnet" is composed of a simple cardboard hat covered in thrifted fabric and adorable doodads. My adhesives of choice were Elmer's Extra Strength glue stick and Shoe Goo plastic cement. On top of the hat, the fabric is simply glued and then gathered/spread over the hat. I trimmed it with dollar store organza ribbon as the hat band and poofy bow, dollar store paper roses, and a dollar store painted-feather butterfly. The gathered lace is another thrifty find I had stashed away in the endless boxes and bags of crafty materials that have taken over my "office." I finished it off with an elastic for attachment to the head.

Believe it or not, it came out EXACTLY as I had craftily envisioned. That's two hats in a row!!! If I get a third "perfect" hat, I may suffer a bout of crafty-perfection-overload, whereupon I will require a change of underpants.
