Tin Hat With Roses

I have an old tin hat, it is dated 1941, and was a gift from a friend, just in case.

I thought I might use some craft skills to decorate it. I have been learning how to make ribbon roses, as you may notice.

First I glued four ribbons together to make a band. I folded the ribbons in half and glued again.

Then I decorated the front of the tin hat with two pink chiffon ribbon roses I made. A Vintage broch that I found, and a white rose with trailing sequins.

For the back of the hat I made a rose corsage with various ribbons.
