Cut a piece of scrapbook cardstock from 12×12 inches down to 12×7″ and roll it into a cone, glue ends together.

Cover it with fabric, let dry and trim excess fabric. Make sure your cone is even the bottom so it will rest flat on the base.

base

To make the base, cut a piece of wire to 12″ and bend it into a circle, tape the ends together. If you use thinner wire, simply double up. Set the wire frame on fabric and glue and cut around the edges to cover it. Now glue and cut a second piece of fabric to cover the other side, trim excess.

Use glue to add the bias tape around the edge of the brim to hide the raw edges.

The fabric will be taut, cut two slits with a craft knife.
