the garden hat…

today was gorgeous, so, I gathered some supplies, went to the deck, to make a garden hat.  all you need is a straw hat, lace, a few flowers, and ivy.

this lace was taken off of an old pillowcase. I glued the flowers and ivy to the lace.  and the lace was glued to the hat.  pretty, right?

here’s the hat not 20 seconds later…  see the little flower bud just laying in the crushed top!  I had put the hat down and gone into the house for my camera—20 seconds!

but, doesn’t bailey look sorry in her time out chair?  (I have no idea what’s stuck to her nose!)

I was able to find the flowers and lace scattered throughout the yard and put it back together:) the top of the hat has a crease in it that didn’t use to be there.

the leftover flowers, and ivy went into a cute pitcher.

I wanted the hat and flower vase for my old bistro set.   it’s very heavy—made of wood slats and metal frames.  it was a pretty light sage color, but being me, I painted it all white.

I won’t leave these outside—I have a spot in the house for them.  and just for fun, I did a collage of all of these.

0-card things i've made!

  7. Your dog is so cute - she obviously admired your hat and wanted to wear it !
    What lovely weather you're having and as always, your garden looks gorgeous.

  8. At least Bailey didn't chew the whole hat up (like my adorable little Maltese did to mine years ago Lynn..LOL!!!) Love your pretty projects!! :o)

  9. Oh my gosh, I actually did an intake of breath when I saw your dog grabbed that pretty hat, Lynn! I dressed up a straw hat I have had for years, too. I plan on wearing it when I go to the antique and flea market this week. I figured I better bring some sun protection. I just did a black ribbon around mine and a big fabric flower I had in my craft stash. I love yours with the lace though.

  10. Your hat turned out so pretty that Bailey just couldn't help herself! Darn it, she wants to look all shabby and cute, too! Obviously you can't stay mad at that adorable face very long. And you have your new/old bistro set to console you, after all. Love it!!!

    I have one of those hats for my mannequin head and some old lace I picked up for my pillowcases. I wonder if dandelions would work? :@

  18. Oh, what a bad bad puppy! At least she destroyed an easy to make and easy to fix project. Imagine if it was one that you spent days toiling over just to get it right ....

    And she does look remorseful!

    Love the bistro set and that picture is adorable (I may or may not be making a trip to Michaels ...

  26. It would be pretty hard to stay mad at such a cute face... but I might employ your idea of a time out chair for my furry mischief maker. Great re-make though.

  33. SO lovely! I'd love a hat like that! Sorry I been so quiet these last couple weeks, I’ve been really ill (now finally diagnosed with Whooping Cough even though I was immunized) and have had another very rough week.
