Slip on this glittering purple flower basket hat and shine on, on those days when mood, hair, and outfit are questionable and you feel like an enigma. Upcycled from a small wicker serving basket, a flower with star-like petals covered in a most heavenly raspberry-purple glitter, and purple and black puzzle pieces, this whimsical fascinator will surely attract uplifting smiles, if not full-on giggles. The embellished, comfortably curved basket is cocked at a slight, but dramatic angle on a black satin headband, for an easy and instant perfectly coiffed look, even without a mirror.

Raspberry Glitter Flower Upcycled Basket Hat

SKU: hatstrbkt3
  • The woven upcycled basket on this one-of-a-kind whimsical fascinator is made of sturdy wicker. Its curved shape is form-fitting for a head. Angled to one side and slightly over the forehead, it is fixed on a black satin headband, which makes removal and recrowning of the lightweight hat easy, for say, getting in and out of your car. 

    The small basket itself and all its embellishments are repurposed materials and perfectly imperfect findings saved from a landfill. The glitter-covered raspberry flower is made of an open net-like plastic. They look like poinsettias and, I imagine, were decorations for a fellow purple lover's Christmas. The puzzle pieces at the flower's center, are basically purple, but the darker color is puzzling and only hints at black. 

    The headband is new.
