How to Make a Black Lace Hat ala Pam from True Blood

Hey guys! Today I'm gonna post a little how to on my black lace hat from my Halloween tutorial "I've Got the Rots." If you've seen the video and are curious to see how I made the hat keep on reading. It's super simple. Promise!

First step: Grab a witch hat, flip it over and push the pointy tip inside out. This will create a nice little pocket for your noggin.
Step Number Two: Trace the hat's shape onto a piece of foam poster board. This will make it super sturdy.
Step Three: Get to cutting guys! I used an Exacto knife.

Step Four: Trace another circle in the center. Make sure it will fit your head. In this case I found a bowl that fit my head and used it as a stencil.
Step Five: Place your huge foam donut onto the hat and glue that badboy onto the witch hat. Pay special attention to the inner and outer rim.
Step Six: I draped black lace on top and began hot gluing it to the inner rim. Be careful, hot glue burns HURT!
Step I don't know I lost count: Trim the excess lace from the perimeter. Try to make it as even as possible.
Last Step... phew finally: Twist the excess lace and glue it around the inner rim. And ta-da! You have your very own black lace hat ala Pam. See you guys? That was easy. : )

  1. Awesome! I wish Halloween was a big deal here in Australia. It kind of sucks that no one does anything special.
