Mad Hatter - Land of Silk and Candy
I was so excited to watch the Royal wedding, for the hats of course. I also discovered a new way to make hats using burlap. Cut a small piece of burlap. Soak burlap in hot water to soften the fiber, stretch the material onto a mold (I used a foam shape, you can use a tuna can, a bowl, a cookie tin, etc), and either secure tightly with a rubber band or thumb tacks (if the mold is foam). Let it dry thoroughly, and completely cover with extra hold hair spray several times (buy the cheapest but the strongest hair spray, like generic Aqua Net). Finally bind the edge with bias tape (gluing with hot glue gun will be easier than sewing). The hat is ready to decorate.
