Curious Hat Contest: the winners

The hat season is upon us. If you’re feeling curiously creative and want to save a bit of money, you might like to personalize a simple hat to wear for all the fashionable outdoor events and garden parties taking place over the summer months.

Curious Hat

Inspired by my previous efforts at hat decoration, I challenged the members of our group at Polyvore to come up with original millinery designs for a Curious Hat Contest. All they had to do was choose a plain hat from ShopCurious, and embellish it with items of their choice. The ten winners, voted for by members of the group, are posted below (click on the images to enlarge). Trend spotters take note – many of the designs have a floral theme...

There was a prize for the first placed entry too. Following on from the successful digital art version of the Victoria Hat, I hope our overall winner is ready to re-create her masterpiece using the natural raffia hat that she’s won...

By now you should be brimming over with innovative ideas for your hats this summer.
