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?
