Elina’s Happy Hats for New Year’s

Hi there!

Michelle here with a super quick and easy idea for New Year’s Eve party fun- a mini top hat!

I’ve seen these on several online shops and always wished I had the 80 bucks to splurge on one. Leave it to Gauche Girl Elina to set me straight! All you really need is a spare plastic cup, a hot glue gun, 2 circles and a Gauche Alchemy Mixed Media Kit.

For this particular project, Elina used the Pink Parts Mixed Media Color Kit, the Acme Kit and lace from the Lace Ribbon Variety Pack.

Check out her fabulous “How To” here:

Question!! Elina WHERE did you get that industrial length glue stick??? I have stick envy.

(brief pause as I snicker obnoxiously)

What are you doing for New Year’s Eve, dear reader? Oh oh- now I won’t be getting that song out of my head for the rest of the day.

Chells out!
