Creations, May Bonnet

A little Dollar Tree fun today,

creating something fun for almost nothing…

I saw this cute little straw hat at the Dollar Tree

and was inspired to dress it up a little

I also grabbed a few faux flower stems

and tied on a mini watering can from my craft stash

I cut individual blooms off the flower bunches

I glued them on the brims equally along each side of the bow

I added some black dots and stripes to the mini watering can…

It looks cute as a door decoration

Or propped on a decorative stand

You can place it with flowers for a colorful centerpiece

And it’s perfect for a Kentucky Derby party

Or for wearing on a bright & sunny day!

CC preferred to wear it without the watering can

Here’s another easy and inexpensive summer craft

Patriotic Door Basket

Happy crafting!

    AWE…how sweet your little CC is in her hat…and how brilliant of an idea. My first thought was of the Derby and how it would work perfectly! I am always looking for door decor and this fits the bill! Happy Thursday my friend.

    That is just the cutest! I walk my dogs around the subdivision every day and enjoy looking at different door and yard decorations. I have not seen any door decoration as cute as this and I’m sure none of them beat the $5 price. Happy Spring!

    Love this!! These were popular in the 80’s and 90’s and I am thrilled to see this style coming back…I have a few of these hats that look like they are crocheted and I think I will dabble a bit with one, making a garden party hat!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
