This is my entry for the 2012 Watermelon Festival Hat contest hosted by the Hempstead Garden Club. One of the girls at work saw the ad in the paper and told me about it and I just couldn't turn down any kind of craft contest. I gathered 72" of tulle, about an inch down from the top to fit the hat. I took some green rick rac I had on hand, sewed it to some light green ruffled ribbon and hot glued it to the tulle. I took some black Shrinky Dink, cut it into seed shapes, heat it up and hot glued it to the tulle. I took two pipe cleaners and a paper flower with a bottle cap center and hot glued them on. I will enter the hat in the watermelon theme category. Now all I need is for someone to take it to the contest for me since we will be out of own.
