I can't remember the first time I saw this done, or the first time I did it. About this time of year I am starting to dig out all the old black hats I've been collecting (a lot!) Each one will painstakingly become a gorgeous Halloween hat with a vintage vibe. And most are displayed best on a hat stand.
For mine, I gave it two thin coats of my favorite chalk paint. Let dry. Then a quick sanding to distress. If it doesn't look old enough for you, a little light brown wax will do the trick. Even though I mainly use them for Halloween, I generally paint them a lighter color to help accentuate the black hats.
