Superstar milliner, Stephen Jones, has created some of the finest work for top fashion houses such as Dior. In honour of Wear a Hat Day for Brain Tumour Research, he put his hand to creating some crafty hats using Hobbycraft supplies – it’s amazing what you can make from lollipop sticks!

You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

1. Use bostik glue to stick two pieces of foam together for the brim.

2. Draw around the brim pattern with a pencil and cut it out.

3. Cut 2cm into the brim to make tabs.

4. For the crown: Using another piece of foam draw a line across it which is the height of the sticks and cut out this strip. Cut another strip exactly the same.

5. Overlap these two strips by 2cm to make a strip long enough to fit around your head. Make five holes to stitch though.

6. Thread a chenille stem through the holes.

7. Measure the two joined strips and cut one end down so the finished length is 61cm. Join the other ends of the foam in the same way to make a tube.
