Witch hat Centerpiece with Helmar

Hello fellow crafters, Cathy here posting today for Helmar and today's project was a super fun one.  I put together for you a Witch hat centerpiece and I used 4 different Helmar adhesives
Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive
Helmar Fabric Glue
Foam Glue
and Helmar Fabric Stiffener
To start off my project, I purchased a styro foam cone 7 inches, a piece of grey patterened fabric and of course I took out my Foam Glue from Helmar.. I cut the fabric out in a triangular shape to wrap around the cone, and adhered it with the Foam glue. love it!! holds fabulously!

Before I totally closed it though I added some fine craft wire, by folding it in half and inserting it into the the top of the cone and bent it in a wavy shape and you will see why in  next picture....


next.. I cut 4 pieces of black card stock at 6 by 12 inches and scored them each at every 1/2 inches and then accordian folded them and added scor-tape to each end because I need to connect each one end on end to create a circular hat rim as you will see....


Next I took one of my smaller bowls and traced out a circle which I then added Helmar Quick dry 450 so when I added the black rosette hat rim it would dry quickly and hold the rim from moving





The next step was to cut a piece of fabric to wrap around the base of the hat and I decided on a bright pink, and I wanted the ribbon to stay up and not slide down abd the ends I wanted stiff, so what better product the Helmars Fabric stiffener and Draping liquid...I of course used gloves to get the ribbon all wet...then I wraooed around and tied in a 1/2 knot




of course, what is a withch hat without some Tulle ribbon???  or a spider web?? I tacked these down with Helmar Fabric Glue


Using my Cricut Design space I got some regular layered flowers as well as some that you roll and then glue on a base and here is a before and after of one I made and glued with 450 Quick Dry...



and here at last is the finished product.... notice the cute little spider??  I have him hanging from some twine...


here are a couple other views




I hope you enjoyed today's project and will visit the Helmar store and check out their awesome products...
thanks for peeking in
