The Mad Tea Party Hat

 After loads of wash and tackling her 3, 4, and 5 month old little boys Lacey announced she was going to a Mad Hatter Dinner party.  That's when the fun began.  We headed to my workroom to see what kinds of goodies were in the stash.  We gathered up a headband, medium size styrofoam ball, wire, glue gun, tulle, scrap of white fabric, beads, a wooden spool and a small teacup and saucer.  This little china tea cup and saucer are a remment of my dishes I had when I was 5 years old.  Rather a treasure.  It's day had come to be used again.
 We cut the styrofoam ball in half, made a slit in the middle then wired and glued it to the headband on a side angle.  The white fabric was glued on the ball and then 3 circles of tulle were gathered in the middle making a poof and pinned in place.
 5" lengths of wire were threaded with tiny pearl beads and fastened after the poofs were done.  A small cardboard circle was cut, the spool was glued to that and then the teacup glued to the spool.  Making a space in the poofs.  The cardboard circle was wired and glued to the headband.  It didn't take long at all.
 The reward?  Lacey won the Prettiest Hat Award at the Party!
Now that's what makes a day of wash fun.
