King of Doggy Style!

Ok, first of all...get your mind out of the gutter!!!  We are talking about pure fashion here, HA!


This is the hat Sebastian wore to BlogPaws this year and it was definitely an attention grabber!!  Since my blog is all about pet crafts, it seemed quite appropriate.  I should also mention this hat survived Hurricane Irene AND being stuffed in a suitcase to and from BlogPaws.  Amazing!  

If treated like a king, will act like a king.

As promised, here is the tutorial on how to make your very own crown!

INSTRUCTIONS:

Believe it or not, this was originally a "visor" for kids.  It can be found in the dollar section of Joann's Craft stores!!!  If they don't have one available in the color you want, buy one of the foam glitter sheets in your color and trace it out (as shown in picture).


Cut it out with a zacto knife on the back side.  


Now, if you found a visor in the color you wanted, then you can just start here.  Bring sides in to create a circle.  Obviously the larger the dog, the larger you want the circle to be.  Use the distance between his ears as a guide for this part.  Then glue into place.


You'll need some elastic string to help secure the crown to the head.  Tie a double knot on one end and staple it to one side of the crown.


Then place the crown on dog's (or cats!) head and determine how long the elastic needs to be.  Make sure it's snug, but not too tight.  Cut, tie a double knot, and staple it to the other side of crown.


Now time for the decor!!  I used bias tape as trim around the bottom of the crown.


Then decorate the tips with gems, rhinestones, glitter...anything you can think of!  I used 3D fabric paint and then sprinkled glitter on top.


Here is the finished piece.  Doesn't she look like a princess?
