Shabby Chic Top Hat

Welcome my friends!
My past birthday I received a gorgeous hat from my friend Lisa. After admiring it the past few months I decided to make one myself so I chose a Magnolia theme.  I have a dear friend to celebrate that will love this hat, many exciting things have blessed her life and I am happy for her so this will show her the love. lol

I had too much fun with Sofiere Maja Papers and die cuts for this hat. Tilda is laying on Little Darlings die and Peony doohickey die surrounded by florals from LLC. A resin cupcake sits in the mix.

On the side is a big doohickey butterfly, Magnolia crystals, and Prima flower, the paper feathers are part of the template. I covered the top part of the hat with lace.  

The crown is from LaLa Land and you can see more of the paper bow from the template which I decorated with flowers and doohickey wings. I also put a tea cup charm on the bottom and filled it with chunky purple glitter.

You can see the doohickey umbrella die on the paper bow as well as the doohickey heart that I stuck into the hat.  The white feathers are real from my chickens.

Here are the close ups.
Tilda with Dot Bow is colored in Distressed inks and taped to the Little Darlings Die. Melissa Francis resin cupcake in florals. The flower doohickey in the middle is Peony.

The Doohickey heart is affixed with a pearl pin and adorned with a purple Kordt and Gott rolled rose, pearls and the words "I love you" from the border of the Sofiere paper.

Doohickey angel wings and umbrella are sitting in the paper bow created from the original template of the hat from the Cutting Cafe.  The bottom left is a tea cup charm that I filled with chunky purple glitter. 

The top has a lot of flowers but on the one side I hung the Magnolia Chandelier crystals and put some small lace on the top.  I Frantaged in Shabby White a metal charm the Eiffel Tower and  painted the wooden spool, lastly sprinkled with chunky glitter.

Hope you enjoyed my Shabby Chic Top Hat and use the template available at The Cutting Cafe because it was easy and so fun to embellish!  Have a wonderful day!!
