Hiding in my Craftroom Freestyle Challenge

This week at Hiding in my Craftroom anything goes!  I have been dying to make a little New Years Hat and found a few minutes to work on my idea.
The hat is from SVGCuts Newest kit: New Years Eve.  I plan to make some more from the kit this weekend, so excited!

Here is my hat

I love this Sorbet paper from Close to my Heart, so I started with that.  A little feather, ribbon and  jewels... ready to go!  The hardest part?  Attaching the darn thing to a headband.  It was intended to just have strings that go around your chin, but I didn't like that.  I thought a headband made more sense,  Until I realized i needed to be an octopus to do it.  Then there was a NEW problem...
How to take a picture fo the darn thing attached to a headband!  Oh the problems this little headband idea brought!

No one in the house would let me take their picture with it on.  Gah.  Then I spied my topiary...

Take one:

Is it me or does a ball of hydrangeas look weird wearing a hat?

Take two:

I covered the hydrangeas with black cloth and thought it needed a face... weird.  What was I thinking??? LOL

I finally decided on the shot at the top.  But I thought it might be amusing to see my ridiculous process.  Who knew that one little headband hat would be so much trouble!

I hope you enjoyed today's craft!  Be sure to go check out the other design team member's projects too.  Now, go enter this week's challenge at Hiding in my Craftroom with your own crafty goodness!!!
