Tear the newspaper into pieces including the edges. You should use text. No pictures to get this look. Using the chip brush dip it into the antique Mod Podge painting it onto the paper hat shape. As you add more paper covering the whole top hat you will continue to add more Mod Podge layering more paper to the edge of where you just finished. Similar to keeping a wet edge when you are painting. Give your whole top hat a coat of Mod Podge to seal the project. It will also give you and antique or yellowing look to your newspaper. Let it dry over night.
The next morning measure by wrapping the wider ribbon around the hat cut. Tacky Glue worked great to hold it in place. The thin ribbon added a little more glamour to the top hat which is easy to attach by tying it in a not after following the same process to cut the length needed. Pom poms seemed like the perfect way to finish the decoration with added sparkle. Let it dry then add to your Christmas decorating in your home. Below is a few examples of how I styled small vignettes with my DIY winter glam decor top hat.
Doesn't it look pretty with the glowing DIY Holiday Candle Wrap I made with my Cricut. The snow man top hat and stars will be decor which will last right through the winter months. Don't you just hate the emptiness of your home after the holidays. I know I feel like my house is naked.⌣
By tipping the hat with the cotton peaking out below the top hat gives this simple glamour inspired top hat a whole new feel. Finally I was able to catch a photo with a glistening a bit of glam.
