All Hallows Eve is upon us! I still haven't bought candy - oh the horror!!

I mentioned in my last post about the Halloween Tea that I hosted this last weekend, well what would a Halloween tea be without a witch? Since I was hosting, I had to have a little something witchy, so I tszujed myself up a hat! 

Ooooh! Ahhh!
Really, this was a very simple fix-up. I started with a "deluxe" witches hat that I purchased at Halloween store, then I ripped a bunch of stuff off of it, and added my own.

Flowers & rhinestones naturally, because I'm a fancy witch!

I added the rhinestone swirls (seriously easy, literally peel & stick!) and I made a handful of my favorite kinds of felt flowers to add to the brim. 

I didn't make the two flowers below, but they were my inspiration for color and pretty to boot, so I added them as well.

The hat fits great and really stays on, the flowers add just enough weight around the crown of  my head so that the hat doesn't feel flimsy, or like it will blow off in the slightest breeze.

Now... where and how am I supposed to store this the rest of the year?? I didn't think of that when I was constructing a 2 foot tall hat :/

Want to see a picture of me in the hat?

How about another?
 Now *THAT'S* scary!

Happy Halloween, e'ryone!
Have fun ~ be safe!

p.s. There are a few other fun little Halloween things that I've made this year, but didn't have a chance to post about, be sure to pop over to my Flickr account, I'll at them there.

p.p.s. I really want to wear this hat every day, would that be weird?

I am lovin that hat!! I have a ton of hats but none two feet tall so I have no clue how to store it unless you have space on a shelf where it won''t get smished.
Happy Halloween!
