Our Sister Trips to Sarasota always include crafting time. And lots of Halloweenish witchy things too.
This year, we turned some black hats covered in sheer fabric into seawitch hats. I dyed them before I packed, and threw bags full of goodies into my suitcase for doctoring them up. (witch-doctoring, I mean)
I whipped mine up fast, thinking I would be using it as my beach hat all week, since it was so comfy and soft, plus had a wide brim to keep off the sun.
Once it was shell and flower laden, it wasn't nearly as comfy. It tended to list to the heaviest side. So, not a good sun hat, unless I wanted to tie it on like a bonnet.
While they didn't end up being our full time beach hats, we still got to play around and wear them sometimes.
And they made great silhouettes against the sunset.
And some of our condo neighbors told us they liked them too. And we overheard others whispering, as they pointed at us, "Those are the ladies that turn into witches!"
Of course we do! Being a sister seawitch is the BEST!
