This DIY top hat is the perfect fascinator-style headband for your mime Halloween costume. Let’s face it, we are not all able to trot around dressed like the Bride of Frankenstein all day! So, for the sake of those who still need to chase after small kids, climb the stairs, or not risk their costume going up in flames while they cook a chili for a party of twelve, we have designed a whole array of fab DIY headbands for you to choose from!

The DIY top hat is definitely one of my faves. It’s fun, yet classy. And although we’ve dressed it up with a mime outfit for the photo shoot, it’s going to look just as fab with a little black dress or tailored outfit.

All you will need to make this top hat fascinator is a plastic headband, black felt, black glitter and gold glitter iron-on. You’ll also need a little fabric stiffener to hold everything upright! Attach the hat to the headband using a large square of felt and it’ll sit pretty all night long.
