Steampunk Mourner's Hat

Its October and that means lots of exciting Halloween projects.  
This week for the SVG Attic Design team I decided to make a Steampunk Mourner's Hat.



This is such a fun project and easy to do as well.

It is the Mourner's Hat from the JGW Raven Quest Collection with a few changes.

Follow Jody's instructions here to cut out and build the basic hat. 
(She gives you a step by step pattern complete with photos, that is easy to follow.)

To decorate the hat and turn it in to a true steam punk  I first added a paper overlay with some printed paper.

The feathers were perfect for the hat so I made 1 large and 2 of the smaller ones; ink them up just a little with some silver-glitter ink.

The two flowers are a design of my own that I had leftover from a different project, but you could use the carnation flower that comes with the file or even some silk flowers.

To finish off the hat I added some black tulle around the base of the hat.


I am so pleased with how this turned out!

  1. I love the papers you used on this hat! They are so pretty and so are the embellishments. Great job on everything!
