I am so honored to be in charge of the decorations for one of my great friends baby shower for her twins! The theme the hosts decided on was a vintage inspired Mad Hatter Tea Party. I thought it’d be fun to make little Mad Hatter hats as part of the centerpieces decorations.

Materials:

  • Top hat wood cut-outs
  • Green craft paint
  • Paint brush
  • Ribbon (green and black)
  • Scissors
  • Feathers
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Pen
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Craft glue
  • Wire hanger
  • Wire cutter
  • Craft beads

I found these fun top hat cut-outs at Michael’s craft stores. They were only .49 and I had a coupon for 30% off! Score! They were practically free!

I painted both sides green.

While I waited for them to dry, I cut two wire hangers in approximately two inch pieces.

I hot glued beads to the tips of each wire piece. Some of the beads I took from an old necklace (I save everything)! I also gathered some other embellishments for the hat. I cut out small squares out of scrapbook paper scraps and wrote the iconic Mad Hatter price of 10/6 on it.

I assembled each trim with glue.

Lastly, I hot glued it to my painted top hats. They turned out so cute!

I am going to group them in various cages, apothecary jars, and glass domes with vintage books, tea cups, glass white rabbits and mini clocks. I can’t wait to show you some of the centerpieces I’ve put together!
