We have arrived to the 147th Kentucky Derby! I am so excited to share this years hat with you!
I had this old wool hat laying around. Yes, it looks too drab to be a Derby hat but stay tuned!
I started by removing the brown bow and ribbon.
This year I wasn’t too keen on wrapping a ribbon around the hat. Then I got to thinking…..maybe a row of feathers would be nice!
I started to hot glue the feathers around the hat alternating with purple and blue.
I found this floral arrangement netting in blue and used it almost as a bird cage veil connected to my hat.
Then I started gluing blue and purple flowers.
I almost never have a plan for my hat, I just start gluing and go from there!
Happy Refashioning, Crafting and Upscaling!!!
