I was scrolling through Pinterest this week and found the most adorable Mad Hatter Hats.
Did you go look? Aren’t they fabulous?
And perfect for this time of year.
The website, Seeing Things, is even kind enough to give detailed instructions and a template.
However, some of us are a bit challenged when it comes to wielding a pair of scissors.
So, I decided to figure out how to use my Cricut to make my hats.

I made the top and bottom of the hat by using Cricut Craft Room Basics Digital Cartridge for the circles cut at 3.5″ and 2.75″.
For the body portion of the hat I used Cricut Font & Basics Shapes Parentheses cut at 8.5″ high and 3.9″ wide.
I then trimmed the ends to make them straight rather than curved.
For my first hat I used Tombow Multi Purpose Liquid Glue, but I quickly switched to my hot glue gun for the second since I was getting glue everywhere.
I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m liquid glue challenged as well.
Next time I will run by paper through my Xyron to adhere it to the chipboard or seal the entire hat with Modge Podge to help keep those edges down.
I added a Spellbinders Bitty Blossom, seam binding ribbon and stick pin to decorate.

I also spritzed them with Glimmer Mist to give them a little sparkle.
I even added stick pins from our swap from last fall.
Thank you Lori Sjogren!!
This is my Cricut Circle Canadian Challenge: Home Décor project in which we had to use chipboard and flowers.
I can’t wait to put these hats out with the other Halloween decorations.
They’ll just have to be up high, since someone thinks they’re just the right size for her Amber doll.
