Project Instructions

  • 1
    To create the top curved portion of the hat, first cut the bottom 8 inch off of the cone. Set this piece aside. Cut about 5 inch off the bottom of the remaining cone. Set this piece aside. Cut another 5 inch from the bottom of the remaining cone. Set this piece aside. Cut the last remaining portion of the cone in half creating two sections about 3 inch long for the top of the hat. Use the foam cutter or serrated knife to cut the ends of each section of the cone at an angle to help create the curve of the hat. Glue each section together as shown inserting a craft stick between the sections before gluing. Glue the top of the hat to the center of the foam disc.

    Cover the entire hat with strips of Midnight Madness duck tape, overlapping each piece for a strong hold.
  • 3
    Gather the end of the Black deco mesh together and pin it to the tip of the hat. Leave about a 3 inch tail of deco mesh hang from the tip of the hat. Insert a 12 inch length of wire into the tip of the hat. Twist the wire around the 3 inch tail of deco mesh and create a hook at the end of the wire to hang the jewel as shown. Continue wrapping the gathered deco mesh down the top portion of the hat to completely cover, pinning as you go. Pin the gathered deco mesh around the top portion of the brim to completely cover, pinning in place as you go. Cut the deco mesh and pin the end where you stop.
