Please Welcome: Tausha from Sassy Style Redesign

Hey 1825 readers! I am so excited to be playing over here with the girls.

I heart Halloween! I big, puffy heart love it! I love that I get to mix gross, with spooky, with cute. There is just something about being able to share my love of glitter, but with a skeleton.

I want to share how to make a witches hat with a record. I know that sounds totally bizarre and strange, but it is super easy and the results are fabulous!

A simple tutorial and I know that you will be running to the thrift store to buy some records.

Supplies:
Record
Fabric
Belt
Batting
Hot glue
Embellishments

I can’t sew. I have no idea how to even turn the machine on. So, I glue. If you sew, I am totally jealous! Anyway-you are going to get your fabric and glue the edges together so you have a cylinder.

Once you glue the edges together, you are ready to glue the fabric to your record.

2-Put your cylinder on your record so you can see where you need to glue it.
3- Hot glue your fabric to the record.
4-Press down and make sure it is secure.

Now that you have your basic hat, you are ready to start filling it up.

I added Styrofoam blocks for stability. This is not a required step, but if you have some great. If you don’t, no big deal. Then you fill the hat with batting and glue the top.

Once the top of the hat is glued, you kind of moosh it around until you get the shape that you want.

If you have the shape you like, now you are ready to add the belt. I added some lime green tulle before I added the belt. You will need to cut your belt smaller so it fit’s the hat. Random tip-pick up a big buckled belt at the thrift store.

Now that you have the belt on-you are ready to embellish your little heart out. This is my favorite part of any creation! I added feathers and some tulle. I also added some black, glittered stick stuff that I picked up last year after Halloween. If you want this look-you could spray paint some sticks from your yard.

Now that your hat is embellished, you are done! Is it not the cutest witch hat that you have ever seen? I added a spray or two of spray glitter. Because everything is better with a little glitter…

To see what else I love to do, come and see me at Sassy Style Redesign.

I share my adventures in decorating with my glue gun, spray paint and my paint brush. Most of the creations that I do are usually done with a Diet Coke in hand and some chocolate ..hidden out of sight from my kids.
