Hats and Crowns!






Hi all!!
Hope you are having a great week!
I am trying to function as normal even with a YUCKY cold! Blah!
I wanted to show you a few things I have been working on. The St. Patty's Party hat! I have been decorating my house with the few St. Patrick's Day decorations. I made this party hat last year. I try to do a little decorating for each holiday.
The crown with the stars all around it, is a new one that I have wanted to try for sometime now. It's made of rain gutter screen. I had seen something like it awhile ago on Carol's blog. I immediately wanted to try one for myself, but I had a hard time finding the right screen. I finally found some. I really like working with it, it's quite flexible, and easier than the chicken wire. It seems I have been into neutrals lately, so I used linen and seam binding, after painting the screen with a rusty color. The other two crowns, have a mermaid theme. I was asked if I could do something with mermaids. So far this is what I have come up with. Of course I had to find some vintage looking mermaids. No modern mermaids here!
Well I'm off to take some cold meds, and get back to glittering.
Chat again soon.
Love,
Rosemary

Now this is tough, I can't pick my favorite, usually one edges out the others a teeny bit, but this time they are all too wonderful...I do just love love love the "shell" at the top of one of the mermaid crowns, such a clever touch...

Hi Rosemary,
Thanks for the good advice. I'm sad that you are sick - feel better soon. I love the crowns - that chicken wire is just too neat!

Hi Rosemary,
Well you already know I'm loving the mermaid crowns! Great idea using a rain gutter screen too. Chicken wire is really hard to bend and cut. Keep up the wonderful work!
Take care,
Martha

Oooo, I love those gutter screen tiaras. Thank you for showing those...I have an idea for a project that I was going to use chicken wire for, but now I'm going to look for the gutter screen. Where did you find what you used?
