This was the instructions received yesterday … Craft a hat for your child to wear to the Spring Picnic on Friday.
Cool! Except, I am NOT a “crafty mom”.
I jumped on Pintrest, pinned a load of super spectacular crafted hats, ran out and bought a glue gun, some flowers, ribbon and other bits and bobs, and dug out last summer’s slightly disheveled straw hat.
So now I’m sitting here writing this post instead of actually attempting to do anything.
I’m feeling slightly overwhelmed to be honest. I know the other moms are all pretty competitive – as evidenced by the only craft shop in town having a sudden rush of people buying craft flowers and butterflies!
If it were up to me, I’d be a lot more relaxed about this all, but I want my daughter to love her hat, be proud of it and I want her to feel special, because she is. I won’t let her down.
Thank goodness I have until Friday to perfect it!
I guess step one is going to be teaching myself how to use a glue gun! ?
Wish me luck.
UPDATE: hats finished. LOVE the glue gun! Youngest daughter also wanted a hat so these are the end results. Still time to perfect but I’m quite proud of my efforts for now.
Not bad for a first attempt. Let me know what you think.
