Anyhoo I was going to do a tutorial for the hat above which was her year 2 hat but I have run out of time (I might still do one and convert for a derby horse race fascinator or something)
Below I have found some pictures of her hats we made over the years for some inspiration.
Above was so fun to make and not really hard and best of all it was as cheap as chips. I used an old headband, tulle, green felt for the grass, eggs & carrorts, some wired butterflies and a soft rabbit from the discount store. I did hand sew all of this but if you had strong craft glue you could easyily put it together with sewing.
My daughter loved this hat & still has it in her room, she got so many compliments and I loved all of the one I had got from the grandmas who adored it lol
It was made out of cardboard which I did in a Mad Hatter style shape (my daughter was obsessed with Alice in Wonderland was this year haha) I covered in wrapping paper, added ribbons, some bows and lots of fake flowers into the center of the hat. I had soft foam inside the hat and attached the flowers to that :)
As it being her first year she was determined to do everything herself, so I made a simple crown out of thick felt and she spent the weekend gluing bits and pieces I brought from the discount shop on to it. It turned out cute and she loved it becuase she made it :)
Enjoy making your hats if you have a parade, if not you can just make your own parade and do a hat anyway haha Have a good weekend
