Hi fellow photogs! Thanks for visiting I’d seen newborn antler hat versions for sale all over the internet, but I thought it looked like something I could do and put my own touch on! Turns out this DIY is SUPER SIMPLE. So, here it is:
I thought the pictures of the items dissected were key, in order to help you locate them. I found them in the seasonal department of <groan> Walmart. They were located in the ornaments section. I could not locate these items online, I believe, because they are so inexpensive, it isn’t worth it for them to stock them online We have two stores in town, one store had them, one did not. So…happy hunting!
I took simple wire cutters and cut off a few berries and the burlap, I then cut off the bells (I was scared they’d startle baby) and loops from the antlers. I glued the berries and burlap onto a rectangular piece of cardboard. I then glued the antlers on. I thought cardboard would be best as it was sturdy enough to “hold” the antlers on. I then trimmed the cardboard as best I could.
Once I had my “piece” I used a bobby pins, because they slid through the corrugated part of the cardboard on one side and the knit hat on the other side! I also didn’t have to “ruin” my hat. Now, I can still use it without my antlers on it.
