No More Hat Head

I love wearing hats, especially for fun events, but I suffer from that dreaded affliction: Hat Head. Again, CSMT to the rescue.
The materials are simple; a cereal box, a cardboard tube and a headband. I prefer to use the tubes from wrapping paper because they are sturdier, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. Cut a short length of the tube and use it to trace around on a piece of cardboard from a cereal box. A wine glass makes a good template for the brim.
Cut out the circles. Run a bead of hot glue around the inside of one end of the tube then attach the smaller circle. Trim it when the glue has set up. Using the same technique, attach the brim to the other side. Obviously, don't trim this circle. 
Spray the completed hat heavily with black spray paint. While the paint is still wet, shake the glitter on it until it is completely covered.  Allow to dry then shake off all the excess glitter. (Do this over a sheet of paper to capture the extra glitter)
Hot glue it to a dollar store headband and ring in the New Year, confident that your hair will retain it's glorious bounce throughout the night.

I started off thinking, "Oh, good. Someone else suffers from the same affliction as I," and was thrilled a solution might be in sight. Yup -- a perfect solution. The only thing I'll have to worry about now is getting the glitter out of my hair, which is a minor inconvenience in light of having my hat head problem solved. ;-)

I love it! I don't know that I suffer from hat hair, but I know I don't look good in hats. This is the perfect solution for me too. Too bad I don't have a New Year's Eve party to go to.
