I love decorating for fall! When I saw this 3D pilgrim hat in the design store, I knew instantly that I wanted to make it. The hat itself is a breeze to put together, and then it’s fun to embellish the brim however your heart desires.
You can find the designer’s assembly tutorial here. (The link is also found in the design’s description in the online store.) All of the pieces I put on the hat are included in the file, but I cut a few more flowers and leaves to fill it in and added some decorative pearl centers to the flowers. I used printable gold foil for the shiny buckle on the front.
I rubbed an inkpad along the edges of my leaves, spiky feathers, and wheat stalks to add a little shading. To shape the leaves and flowers I misted them with a touch of water and shaped them with my fingers, then let them dry before attaching them to the hat with hot glue. It really is easy to add a lot of dimension!
How are you using your Silhouette to decorate for the holidays?
