Halloween Upcycled Vintage Hats 2017 Edition

 I have been taking cheap vintage hats and upcycling them into classy (yet freaky)
Halloween toppers for several years now.  If you wish to see past years click:
2014 here, 2015 here, 2016 here.
Without further ado, I would like to present the 2017 Halloween hats:

GREEN SNAKE HAT
I made two snake hats this year, this is the first.

RUBBERY SNAKE HAT
This is the second snake hat.  
I like how the snake tail hangs down the back,
 like decorative ribbon.

REAL BUGGY COLLECTION HAT
This hat was inspired when I found a huge dead bug in my yard,
he is front and center. I added a couple more real, and a couple fake bugs.

 I had to figure out how to put them on pins,
without pinning anyone's head.  
Pinning them to a huge furry spider was a good solution.

ME & MY DOLLY HAT
This is my only Halloween doll this year.
I found her at a flea market, no legs.
But she is not really very scary, 
I gave her a fancy "matching" hat with a feather.

 I'VE GOT MY EYE ON YOU HAT

DRIVING ME BATTY HAT
Bat in front glows in the dark.
This gives you a nice view of my model.

FURRY EYEBALLS HAT.
Eyeballs made out of pingpong balls.
This one is my favorite hat so far.
 So far .... because there are more coming tomorrow.

  1. Do you have a market for these or are they for your own collection. Never ever thought of trying this!

    1. I sell them at my vintage market booth for $9 a pop. I know that is cheap, but I have so much fun doing them.

  2. These hats are incredible! I would be my 8 year old grandson's hero if I sported one of these on Halloween. Went back to all the other 3 years listed and got a chuckle at your creativity.

    1. I am selling at an antique show this weekend, and plan on "sporting" one. We need to enjoy life, right?
