Decopatch to the rescue! Decopatch is like a more sturdy kind of tissue paper and comes in all sorts of gorgeous colours/designs/patterns. It’s VERY easy to use, and rather addictive – you might find yourself searching for more items to customise once you've finished! Below are instructions on how to Decopatch (from www.decopatchme.co.uk :
‘Cut or rip the paper into small bits about the size of a postage stamp.
Put a small amount of Decopatch glue on the part of the object you wish to start Decopatching then with the brush pick up the paper you have just torn and put it on the part you have just put the glue on. Put another small amount of glue over the top of the paper as this helps seal the paper.
Repeat until the whole of the object is covered.’
The finishing touch was to glue a polka dot purple ribbon around the hat and tie it in a knot at the back (I also tied a knot at the front to make it sit better). This completes the look, and hides where the elastic shows at the sides. The elastic goes at the back of McKeyla’s head and tucks under her hair; McKeyla's Hipster hat makeover is complete!
