How To Create A Mad Hatters Hat – Paper Mache

G’day everyone. I’ve been inspired by the following YouTuber (Ilene McInnes – Link below) in making a Top Hat, and thought it would be fun to adapt this to make a Mad Hatters Hat. This is paper mache hat and I also incorporated napkins into this, so the finish will look like old leather when painted. I’ve had a ball making this hat, and will be displayed on a shelf in my craft room.
