Top Hats

Cut Out and Keep is another one of those Do It Yourself websites that attracts a lot of Steampunk projects. In May, I featured a fun project on Steampunking your composition notebooks. If you missed that post, you can check it out here. It’s absolutely worth looking at, especially for all those Steampunk students are out of school with time on their hands for the summer.

Another simple Steampunk project caught my eye on their site, and I thought you all might like it brought to your attention. This particular set of instructions features recommendations on how to create your own Steampunk Hat.

The directions are simple enough. Like any well executed project, the real work is in the planning.

What I really like about this particular page, however is the assortment of hats that the instructions have inspired that can be viewed below the instructions. Every one is markedly different from the others, giving a small glance into the personality of the owner and their personal flare of Steampunk.

So, if you don’t have a Steampunk hat yet, or are looking to dress yours up, this tutorial (but more so the pictures) might serve some inspiration! Happy modding!
