Well, well, well, we now have less than a week until Halloween. Four days, people! It's crunch time. We've been sharing our costume suggestions for the past month, but now it's time to shift focus to things that don't require much effort—less elaborate looks, if you will. We shared lazy costumes with you yesterday, but they were general, always relevant costumes and sometimes you just want something that screams 2014, y'know? Enter: Pharrell's Grammy hat.
It's the hat that everyone talked about (and talked about forever) and it, actually, is a costume that requires very little work. All you need are some scissors and glue (you probably already have those things, right?), felt, and ribbon.
+ Felt: Walnut brown felt fabric ($6/yard)
+ Scissors: Fiskars softouch multi-purpose scissors ($12)
+ Ribbon: 1-1/2 inch tan satin ribbon ($5)
+ Glue: Aleene'S Tacky Glue ($3)
All you've got to do is get your hands on some brown felt (paper will work if you're lazy to the extreme/have it readily available) and lay it on the floor. You can then trace the hat shape on the felt, or, if you're an artist/DGAF, you can cut it out free-form. Then, cut two strips of ribbon, attach them to the back of the hat cutout like straps on a backpack and—voilà—you're the most famous hat in all of the land.
