Take the fabric that you will be using, I used some scraps of black satin. Cut a very long length of yarn, I used red glittery yarn that I got on sale. Sew the yarn to the fabric in a squiggly way, if you want a particular design go ahead!
Glue the fabric to the cardboard. Then vut some more yarn and plait or macrame it to make an edging. Glue this to the edging of the hat.
Gather a scrap of netting and glue to the back of the teardrop shape. Tie your ribbon into a bow to glue onto the point where the netting meets the fabric.
You dont have to use ribbon, you can add gems, feathers, etc.
Turn your teardrop over and glue a hair slide to the bottom.
Voila, min cocktail hat!
