GONE FISHIN' BOY'S HAT (C)
Small Fish Lures
White craft paint
Black craft paint
Small amount of novelty yarn
Break toothpick in half and smooth one of the broken ends with sandpaper or an emery board.
Place a small amount of white paint on a piece of aluminum foil. Dip the smoothed end of the toothpick in the white paint. Then dab one of the pom-poms on each side for eyes. Allow to dry completely.
Now place a small amount of the black paint on the foil. Using the pointy end of the toothpick, dip it in the black paint. Then dot the black paint in the center of the eye. Allow to dry completely.
After the pom-poms are dry, thread a tapestry needle with novelty yarn and run it through the center of the pom-pom, top to bottom using the eyes as a reference. Now you can knot the yarn or dab a small amount of white glue on the yarn and pull the glued section inside the pom-pom.
Foil gift bag
Cut a square of the bag approximately 2 inches square. Spread glue in the back and fold in half with the shiny side out. When completely dry, cut an oval or leave shape about 1 X 2 inches. Punch a small hole in one end of the oval .
Now you have embellishments to customize your hat. Sew or glue the lures and spinner randomly on hat.
Where do you get all those ideas? Are you dreaming about your next designs or something? LOL
