Steampunk Pirate Hat

Hey friends! 
It's been a while since I've blogged but I made this Steampunk Pirate hat that I wanted to share with you.

To make this hat I started with a plain  black top hat that I found at the local costume shop. I added a couple of Steampunk pins I found and the rest was all pretty much from my scrapbooking/crafting stash and broken jewelery I had saved just for a project like this.
 About a year ago my biker friend Fred gave me a Harley button that had fallen off his jacket and I added it to the center of the tiara. I colored all the metal the same color using Tim Holtz Adirondack silver alcohol ink. I just swiped across the surface with a sponge and it worked great! Then I just added as much bling and detail as I could. There's a silver stingray charm, a black netted bat, a bottle of captured hearts with hat pins, skulls, daggers, gears, feathers and lace.
Two of my daughters, Nerissa and Ashley were happy to model the hat for pictures.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look.
