The hat transformation...

I have been wanting one of these "so totally IN" hats as I like to call them. So, I finally found one with a price tag that didn't make me run away. I found it at Family Dollar of all places!!! It was only $3! I admit, I think the peace sign is kinda cute... but it's just NOT me. So, I did something to change that!:)
I bought some fake silk flowers at the dollar store (love that place!) and also bought some bagged tea. I boiled the tea and stuck a bunch of bright wight flowers in it and soaked it over night. The end result was a nice browned edge on the flowers, and kind of tainted. It was just the look I was going for! Then I popped a covered button in the middle and hot glued it to my hat!
Now it is much less "peace, man..." and much more ME! Whata ya think?

Wow! I love it. I'm not much of a hat person, but I like the thing you did to the flower!

The hat has a much more sophisticated look now. I'm not into following the trends and feeling the love of the "peace" sign. So, I'm happy to see you were able to get a cute project out of it.
