When I was younger of course I loved my Disney princesses but I also loved a few movies that didn’t have to do with your typical princess.  A few of my favorites were The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, The Neverending Story, The Sound of Music, Pipi Longstocking, and Pete’s Dragon.  I loved these movies because since they were real life actors and not cartoons (instead for the dragon in Pete’s Dragon), it made my imagination go to places that I loved.  I was never really a popular kid who was surrounded by friends, we lived in places where there weren’t very many kids around so I had to play with my brother or just by myself.  My imagination is something that I will forever be grateful for.  I don’t know if it’s genetics or if it just develops, but whatever my parents did while my mind was developing they did an awesome job because my imagination took me to places that made my childhood so enjoyable.

Since Mary Poppins was one of my all time favorites, I thought that this year would be the time for me to do my version of the Mary Poppins costume.  Believe it or not I don’t currently own a white button down.  I can’t find where my red bow tie went, and I couldn’t find a hat to make into a Mary Poppins hat.  What I ended up doing was making my own and doing a modern day fun version of Mary Poppins.  Then I decided that I would see if I could find a hat headband if I had no luck finding a Mary Poppins’esque hat.  Which I found one at Walmart!  It had some Halloweenish things on it but I ended up ripping those up!  Here is a step by step tutorial (that’s super easy) for this Mary Poppins hat.

What you'll need:

Headband and Hat (found at Arts and Crafts store)
If you find one premade, here is a similar one
Daisy Faux Flowers (Michael's)
Faux Cranberries (Michael's)

Step 1:

If you purchase a hat that already has something on it take those off.  Once you are done, pop your daisies off of the stems, and cut your faux cranberries.  make sure to keep a little bit of the stick portion still attached to the cranberry.  It'll be easier when you go to hot glue gun these small pieces.

Step 2:

Hot glue gun the daisies first and place them wherever you like.  Then add the cranberries in little crevices, or wherever you desire.

Voila!  You are finished!
