HTM - Wide Brim Hat for Mini Dolls

Here's a quick, SIMPLE way to make A LOT of hats for any mini doll.
  • Felt or felt board (various colors)
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Can of food (veg or fruit)
  • Bottle cap (water or soda)
  • Thin tip marker
  • Small silk flowers, 1/4"- 1/8" wide ribbon, other tiny embellishments

 Trace the food can with your thin tip marker onto a light colored piece of felt. Cut out the circle on the inside of the trace line. You don't want ink on your hat.

For darker colored felt, use one of your cut circles as a template.

 Trace a bottle cap with the thin tip marker.

 Cut on the inside of the trace line, use the inner circle as a template for darker color felt. Pop it over your doll's head and voila!

 Embellish your hat brim with ribbons, bows, small flowers - make sure it is light weight so it won't weigh it down.
