Straw hats!? THIS time of year!?

des_arc_ya_yaOctober 11, 2006

Where can I find (at this stage of the game!) a couple of straw hats (the kind with the large brims) to paint a black cat on for Halloween and to do a snowman on for winter? You know, the kind where the crown is painted black, ears, fuzzy tail, etc. are added on? The snowman uses the crown for his face and then a small hat is attached to his "head", etc.?

Checked at WalMart and they don't have any. Shoot! Guess I should have thought of them back when it was still summer! Grumble...grumble...LOL

Try someplace like the Dollar Tree in the toy section. I think I've seen some there in the past. You may have to pull the trim off.

You might even check out some of the bigger dept stores such as Filene's (now Macy's) and see what they have left over on clearance. J.C. Penney's, Sears, maybe, maybe not. Good luck in find the hats.

Found one this morning at a garage sale, you guys, for 25 cents! LOL It's not exactly the shape that I wanted but I think it's going to work!

(Man! I'm such a cheap date! LOL)

Thanks, Judy, but I don't need them now. I already had one and then found another one at a garage sale. Gave one to my grandkids to hang on their door and kept one for me. I'll post a photo when I can locate the camera! LOL
