At Simon Says this week the theme is hats. I decided to take an old hair band and create a variation on a hat – a fascinator.

Funnily enough, a “fascinator” initially meant a lacy, fancy head covering for ladies to wear with their evening clothes. Ok, education over, here is my take on Simon Says hat theme….I used grunge paper, a old hair band covered in ribbon, pearl paint dabber, flowers, old paper distress ink, feathers….
