Steampunk Hat and Fingerless Gloves

Steampunk Hat and Fingerless Gloves

DIY steampunk crafts are so easy to make, you won't believe it. Create your own Steampunk Hat and Fingerless Gloves and wear them whenever you need to add a fancy touch to your wardrobe. Use a metal sheet roll from MD Hobby & Crafts to get started on your hat crafts. The metal overlaid with black lace was used for the hat band. The same metal/lace was used in the matching fingerless gloves then accented with black roses and other trims. The metal shines nicely through the lace. This fun and easy craft project can be completed in an afternoon. The fingerless gloves add just the right touch to the hat and can also be done in an afternoon.
