In my childhood memories my grandmothers always wore aprons...bib aprons with rick-rack...half-aprons with lots of pockets. Grandma Zetta and Grandma Patta taught me so many things. My love of family history and all things vintage is due to them. I have so many stories to tell and things to share. I hope you will enjoy them.
I bought this pretty little hat at Disneyland last week. It's only about 5 inches tall. The darling cameo is Tinkerbell. Her wings and roses are on the back. I decided to make a hat stand to display it.
These are some of the supplies I used: an 11" tall wooden candlestick, two routed-edge wooden rounds, 4" and 6", and a round moon face I printed on cardstock. The clock face pictured will be used in a shorter hatstand I will make next. I used antique white paint and stained it with a wash of nutmeg brown. I tried using one-step crackle, but it didn't have the effect I wanted. I painted the pieces before assembly.
I modge-podged the moon face to the top of the stand. I know...it doesn't show when the hat is on it, but I think it looks cool. =D I added a wee bit of nutmeg brown paint to the modge-podge to further antique the print.
Wa-La! The finished product! The stand can be used to display any number of cute things...even...One. Perfect. Cupcake!
