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 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.
