Top Hat Derby Hop

I had alot of fun making this hat for Lemoncholys Top Hat Derby Hop. I'm such a sucker for creative blog hop parties.

The hat and its decorations are made almost entirely of paper including cardboard and mulberry papers. Pretty artist papers were layered and trimmed into fancy feathers. Vintage bouillon trim lays on top of the light blue paper ribbon while vintage white gelatin souffle puffs were made into flowers and tucked into empty spaces. German glass glitter stars and a sparkly felted bird were added for fun. And, finally, silver glitter swirls were painted to the side and rim of the hat for yet another special touch.


  1. thanks so much for playing! i love that you made your hat from scratch - i'm inspired to give it a try myself! the sweet baby blue colors you used really make it look like a winter wonderland.


  2. love it! The feathers made out of paper are ingenious.
