A Mad Hatters Tea Party with Petaloo!

This summer I'm planning a Mad Hatter's Tea so Petaloo's "It's Your Birthday" Birthday Week provided the perfect excuse to start making fun accessories!

I've created several fun little Mad Hatter hats and a 'This way / That way' sign post.


To create the sign I embellished a small piece of dowling with washi tape, affixed the small arrows, and then placed it in an old teacup. There's a few cute little sticks and embellishments from doodlebug in there too :)


The base of the post is decorated with dried moss and pretty, sparkly, Velvet Hydrangeas... LOVE, love, love the Fuschia!


The hats are constructed of paper from the "Sugar Shoppe" paper collection from Doodlebug Designs.


The little pom-pom trims from Petaloo's Fancy Trims are absoluletly perfect for finishing off those edges!


And how much fun are those sparkly Glitz trims?!!


I am certain the Hatter himself would approve of a hat the colour of orange sherbet :)
I had such a great time creating these pieces. The "Sugar Shoppe" papers from Doodlebug Designs paired perfectly with the always outstanding and oh-so-fun products from Petaloo.

... AND if you'd like to make accessories for your own Mad Hatters Tea Party, I've created this template for the projects above. Happy making!
