    Cardboard and perhaps paint with green paint or use a nice patterned green material, the cardboad I suggested is because it is easier to use and recyclable.

    Thx. I'll try that. I was also thinking of using tulle and a headband to make an over-the-top fasinator

    I made an exaggerated Derby Day Hat, I used the large straw hat as my base, painted it green and then added extra large roses, which I was able to wire to the hat. Ran A ribbon through the webbing and the person was able to tie a large bow to wear the hat. Got rave reviews. I would add feathers and wiring to make swirls and I think you would have the exotic green hats!!

    Don't know where you are located, but I took a class at Piecemakers in Orange Co., CA, to make fascinators. Fun! You may check into that or something near your area.

      I LUV Piecemakers & used to take a lot of their classes. Lived in OC for 30 yrs. Have lived in Sacramento for 7 yrs now & miss OC every day, especially the OC swap meet. It was nice to run into a "homey" on this site. Take care.

    If you go to 'google' and put in 'Making Fascinators' you will find a number of tutorials on making them.
