A bouquet of rust and orange flowers crowns this painted and tiny hat with a big, whimsical, and Indian summer presence. It's the perfect upcycled accessory to wear when celebrating the fall harvest at festivals or sipping cider on Thanksgiving.  It is a one of a kind, painted hat upcycled mostly from repurposed kitchen trash.  The small round base is made from a plastic bowl and the flowers are made from egg cartons.  Pearl white highlights give it a bit of shimmer and green fabric leaves plucked from a thrifted wreath adds a cool contrast to its overall warmth. It is finished with a gold floral chiffon hatband adding even more sunny delight to the tiny headpiece and to your day.

Orange Flower Upcycled Tiny Painted Hat

SKU: hatriceegg6
  • This whimsical rust and orange painted hat shimmers with pearlized dots and edges. It is tiny, round, and lightweight.  It was created from repurposed trash, and thrifted and salvaged items, that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. The base and the flower bouquet are handpainted, inside and out, with acrylic paints and the small fascinator has been lacquered multiple times, making it water and scratch-resistant.*  The hatband is scrap fabric from a pirate wench skirt I made. Cock at a slight angle and secure it to your hair, wig, or even a knit cap with crisscrossing bobby pins** slipped through the green loops.

    Handle with care. Hold hat sides, NOT by the brim or flowers. 
    Clean with a feather duster or spot clean gently with a soft cotton or bamboo rag and a drop of water. No chemicals, abrasive materials, or sharply pointed metals. 


    While this hat is lacquered and water-resistant, it is not necessarily waterproof. Cover it if caught in the rain or when near misters. If it does get wet, gently shake off water droplets, pat it with a tea towel, and set it to dry in the sunshine or in front of a fan on a low setting.
    Store in a dry place.


    Styling Ideas:

    Looks great alone with hair twisted up into a sloppy bun or, worn on top of  a colorful wig, or a feathered or knit cap

    Keep the silly look simple with a solid or floral patterned orange, gold or rust dress, pantsuit, or clown costume

    For more dramatic occasions, pair it up with one of my upcycled festival skirts or a piece of upcycled jewelry
