Do you or sommeone you know like hats and getting into holiday moods then you have got to see these hats and they are so easy to do. You can gather any kind of halloween things from the dollar stoore or make yorself and if you have a cricut it can make it fast too. I love the spider one a lot. You can even buy a bag of them at the dollar store or make your own. I would glue on some spiderwebs on the hat too. I bet this would be sooooo fun.
