Dollie DIY: Let's Make A Clown Hat!4:33 PM
Well...here is the "as promised" Clown hat post! This isn't really a wig- I thought that might look silly- this an clown sombrero....so it will look sillier!
The materials you are fairly easy!
-A mini sombrero (which we got at Party City around Cinco De Mayo, a pack of 8 for like..two bucks)
-Fluff! (cotton balls would work also- actually we are using some of that fake snow fluff thing that you put on trees. We got never before opened package at GoodWill a while back for about one dollar!)
-Markers- we found that thick ones work best!
-Tacky Glue. in the picture is a Hot Glue Gun- which we intend on using, but ours is SO old and SO hard to work! It would not heat up. At all. So, we used some Tacky Glue leftover from a recent wig swap (hint hint) instead.
Step one: Apply the glue! While I was working the camera- my glued it worked pretty well! ;) (sorry for some blurry pics by the way!) Anyways- here are some in-progress shots!
Then, you apply the fluff!
Let it sit for a few seconds...then color it!
MyFroggyStuff colors her cotton by rubbing it on a chalk board. Well, we don't have a chalkboard, but if you do- use it!
We went for the classic rainbow. ;)
Here it is done! Oh and look- my sewing machine!
And now...here it is on Mia! Mia's hair was up in a bun so we put the hat on the bun.
I love love love the way it looks from the back!
Really happy with the results.
It looks very silly!
Now I must go pack! My friend and I are headed to the waterpark (the biggest one EVER) tomorrow!
See you later!
