I have been on Pinterest as all of ya'll are everyday or every minute. I have pinned alot of things that I want to try and one of those many things was a "Mad Hatter Hat." I have to be honestly I have not been a real fan of Alice Wonderland. I don't know if it all the mass confusion with Wonderland. I'm not really sure, but I finally sat down one day and watched the Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. I actually Loved it. I really love Johnny Depp playing the mad hatter and his costume. I love the ending when she finds heself a confident young girl becoming a young independent woman.
So I went to YouTube to find some help and I did find some great videos-I finally found one that made making the hat so simply.
Here is video clips and pictures.
So this was the video that I got the help from and it only took me a couple of hours.
The supplies you need are in the second video. But I forgot to take pictures of the cylinder of poster board the size of my head. I did reinforce it with stapling the top and bottom seam and hot glue (high temp and yes I burnt my finger I few times. The top is 12" circle and I did yes my Cricut to help. I then hot glued the material to the top and draped it down to then hot glue under the card board.
I the bottom part is all explained the 2nd video. But for my wire circle I used an 12" from an old lamp shade that tore apart.
My costume part was from a jacket I bought at TJ Maxx last year, a beige lacy shirt from Cato's, my green scarfs from the local Country Peddler show this year and my pants where black carpi with black and green argyle socks from Target.
I had the pocket watch necklace from last year and made the potion charm from a Pinterest idea.
and the rabbit hole.
I hope ya'll enjoyed the pictures and somewhat tutorial. I had alot of fun and did get to where this at work and people crack me that they couldn't believe I actually made it. I love to challenge myself and I did! Belated Happy Halloween and Happy Fall
