How fun was this...I can imagine so many different papers, colors and ways to decorate this. I used some clearance paper that had silver foil on lack for the panels on the top. Then I added the black lace with rhinestones around the brim (thinking I bought it on sale during my camping trip at a Hobby Lobby). I added the black feather ad some gray metallic/glittery flowers and the spider crawling down. I had bought a bag of the plastic spiders at the dollar store and covered him in glue and glitter - the glitter helped it stand out against the black paper plus it made him look awesome.
This hat is actually a box and the top comes off so you can hide a treat, message or goodies inside. I think the hat is about 6 1/2" tall x 7 3/4" wide. I used my silhouette to cut the hat pieces out of cardstock. I did add a piece of chipboard to the brim of mine to give it a little more weight and stability. Its glued between the layers.
