Top Hats - Game Day Style

IMG 1987

Today’s post is a combination of several factors going on in my life:  Halloween is coming up (not that I really love Halloween but I do like to be a BIT festive without all the spooky!), it is the Ga/Fla big football game weekend (Go Dawgs!!!), and I recently helped to host a party where we used decorated top hats for the table decorations (so these hats were floating around in my mind!). 

This project is so easy, even the most un-crafty can make them to cheer on their own team, to hand out at their next tailgate, or to throw around for decorations.

All you need is:

One or more Top Hats in your team colors - Plastic or Felt

Available at Party City, Hobby Lobby, a Halloween Store or Online at sites like:  Amazon, Shindigz, or Windy City Novelties

Every household should have a glue gun!  Oh the things you can do!

And, Fluff

Top Hat - Game Day Style Fluff

Fluff can be:  ribbon, tulle, fake flowers, print outs of your team’s logos, circle punches from paper, bow ties from paper (template here), feather boas, beads, basically whatever inspires you or that you “conveniently have lying around” that can be glued on to your hat for design!

That is it!  Just start printing, cutting, wrapping, bow-making, and gluing to create your fun, decorative, sure to bring a wow, spirit-filled hats!  You can make them Basic to Burlesque and anywhere in between.  I can testify from the party we did a few weeks ago, they are big hits (and I bet the later your kick-off, the bigger hit they will be!)

I am now trying to figure out which one I will be wearing to my tailgate! (Right as if he would let me wear a hat to the tailgate!)  I might just pass them out to some cute college guys girls who I know will love them!
