A Romantic Witch Hat

I decorated a little witch hat  to put on the coffee table in the family room.   I made the witch initial from a vintage folding tape measure.  I just pinned a rose garland to the hat,  and I will take it off and use somewhere else after halloween.  I also just pinned the doily to the top of the hat.  I lightly stuffed the hat  with pillow filling just to give it some shape.  I "crinkled" the brim of the hat to give it a worn look.
I pinned the hat to a hat stand and added a ruffled skirt.  The ruffled skirt is part of a halloween costume that I got for a dollar.

This is the back of the witch hat.  I made a headband from some tulle that I got at HL. I also tucked in some pieces of lace around some of the flowers.

My mother loved to starch doilies and this one is probably my favorite. 

Now the family room is decorated for Halloween!

I will be joining these parties!
