How can I....
Build a hat?
For the Mad Hatter
These are the instructions I used to make the hat for our recent production of Alice. If you cut the top of your cardboard (or in my case I used buckram) into a soft wave, you get a nicely lopsided top to your hat! :)
A Cocktail Hat
This is a really nice detailed tutoral that teaches you to make your own cocktail hat base.
A Cute "Newsboy" Type Cap
This is such a sweet hat for boys and could be used in a wide range of stage parts.
Here's a great tutorial to make an elf hat!
And one more,
A really nice set of directions for a floral hair wreath.
They show it with cut flowers, but you can just as easily substitute silk flowers for your next "village girl." Copellia, anyone?
I hope you find these tutorials as useful and fun as I do!
