Easter is very important in my country, so I wanted to decorate properly for the occasion. Browsing through a sea of (cuter than cute) adorable eggs and bunnies in pastel colors, I thought I should go the opposite way.
I chose the Easter Hat project because it's a reminder of a world-wide tradition. I ALWAYS wear something brand new for Easter (preferably shoes!!!). And looking in my closet, I went with the bowler hat. Too much pink never harmed any body, but it put me in the mood for a unisex look. I LOVE bower hats - British, quirky, stylish, timeless :)
You will need: a hat, a piece of fabric, glue, Easter felt silhouettes, flowers, paper and white gel pen.
Step 1: Cut a wide piece of fabric and secure it around the hat's original ribbon. Cover it completely.
Step 2: Attach the felt bunnies on the fabric piece.
Step 3: Prepare the flowers. Cut a thin piece of floral foam and immerse it in water. Pin the flowers on the narrow side. Wrap it up in waterproof foil.
Step 4: Secure the flowers to the fabric. Cover with another piece of fabric and finish with a felt bunny.
Step 5: Take a step back and evaluate your work. In my case, I felt the Easter Hat could use a little extra bling. Enter the awesome mustaches, in order to complete the British look!
Step 6: Take a sheet of black colored paper. Draw the mustache outline on the backside of the paper. Cut it, reverse and trace the outline with a white marker. I did it because you need to see the mustaches against the black hat. Attach some wire and pimp-up the Easter Hat :))
SO HERE IT IS :
Step 7: Frame it on the wall. Add a few drops of water every morning!
