This installation of vintage Bracero hats hangs in the stairway between the first and second floor of a Mexican-inspired restaurant. The display, paired with a rustic wood dresser and mounted metal horse heads, creates an overwhelming sense of authenticity.
Make a favorite fashion accessory into decor, as seen in this clever way of storing hats in Pap Shirock's Los Angeles home. "Hanging them on the wall was just a way to try to keep them from being crushed, but I do like the way it looks."
Native plants are famous for their carefree personalities and ability to thrive on rainfall. Mexican hat plant is no exception. It delivers season-long color to the landscape in plants that demand minimal care and water.
Keep the kids entertained at their next party with this whimsical hat project. You'll need: brown or tan card stock, brown marker, scissors, craft knife, hole punch, hot glue gun and glue sticks, 3/8" width elastic, pom poms in pastel colors, ribbon and a downloadable cone template.
This pretty laundry room is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen. Patterned tiles and interesting details, like the metal-and-glass pendant and the cabinets' leather pulls, add compelling layers of texture.
Usually dwarf Alberta spruce is a go-to plant for adding an air of formality to gardens. But the topiary forms also lend themselves to playful garden whimsy, like this pom-pom spruce decked out with sun hat and shoes. It’s a great choice for a children’s garden. If your dwarf Alberta spruce develops brown needles or dead spots due to winter burn or spider mites, you can always prune out those branches to create your own one-of-a-kind topiary style.
