Crowns, Party Hats and Headwear

I love playing with Papers, wires, flowers and Ribbons! These have a lead to making anything from hats and crowns to Headbands and Hairclips.

Welcome to "Marla's Madness"


Hi! Shell here. Welcome to my new little blog. "Marla's Madness". Marla, as you may already know,is one of my Mannequin heads who generally acts as a model for me.
 This blog is just about hats, crowns and other headwear. I'll be posting "finds" I'll use to incorporate into hats, suppliers, "wearers", etc.

So, if you're into hats, headwear and crowns, welcome! It's been a learn as I go process and having fun trying new techniques and using new materials........

Check back once in a while and see what I've been up to!
Thanks for stopping by!
