Halloween hat with Helmar Glue

A Halloween Hat with Helmar Glues

I can't believe it's October already!  How time flies.  Speaking of flying I thought I would share with you this quick and easy Halloween hat centerpiece featuringHelmar Scrap Dots . We are now in the busiest months of the year but that shouldn't stop us from creating something fabulous in a short time.

Items needed for this project.

2 12x12 sheets of decorative paper ( I choose two from BoBunny's "Fright  Delight" collection.)
Something round to draw a circle with on your paper at least 10" to 11" in diameter.

Cut one full circle from your first 12x12 paper.  Cut a half circle of equal diameter from the second paper.
Taking the bottom of the semi circle fold it in half forming a conical shape.  Release, now run a line of adhesive with your  Helmar Quickfix Adhesive runner from the center to the end refold over lapping over the glue and stick it together. 
I applied a beaded piece of lace down the seam of the cone and a braided ribbon around the brim of the hat with Helmar Craft Glue

Center your conical piece on the circle brim then with a thick ribbon of Helmar Scrap Dots
go around it.  Gently press a decorative piece of ribbon or lace on top of the Scrap Dots boarder and allow to set and dry for a few hours if not over night.
I also used Helmar Scrap Dots to secure the bat spray on top of the hat.

With the base of the project secured we can now decorate with our favorite items.  I used fall silk leaves, sequins, black flower etc using Helmar Craft Glue
to keep them in place.

I hope this Halloween project has inspired your to create your own haunting creation!  As always the perfect design starts with the best Helmar glue products.
