31 Days of Halloween - #19 - If the Hat Fits...

Smeared & Smudged
31 Days of Halloween
Day #19
Today I thought I'd have a little bit of witchy fun...
As they say...
If the hat fits....

 On a recent trip to Meijers ds and I were walking around an a guy was putting out boxes all around the seasonal area. I one box that was partially open with lots of fun paper mache' stuff so I started digging.  I'm glad I did because I found this wicked Witches Hat!!!  I've always wanted to alter one so I had to get it.  I found some cool skulls & blank tombstones too but that's another project.
I painted the hat black (of course) laced it with some black & grey mesh webbing.  I then stamped  a sheet of white cardstock with various Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells stamps then inked it all up with various yellow & orange shades of Distress Stain (I LOVE that stuff!).  I then made up several rosettes & 1/2 rosettes.  I stamped & die-cut the centers for a couple of the rosettes and glued them to the hat.  Added a bow and my little friend here Bob's your Uncle...

So, if the hat fits...wear it :)
I've got mine...
