Practical Crazy hats Suggestions for a Festive Christmas Party.

One of the highlights of our Christmas Party

Crazy hats parade was one of the reasons why our christmas party this year was more festive and colorful. All employees were required to wear their crazy hats during the party, if not one who did not participate will be disqualified in the raffle draws of prizes. To encourage us more, the Christmas Party committee reserved a cash prize of Six Thousand Pesos (P6,000.00) each for two winners wearing the best Crazy hats.

The Crazy hats need not  be expensive but the committee left it all to the imagination of employees on how to design their hats.

The man in the picture above used an old helmet and stuck anything that are ready to be thrown away to the carbage can, broken ruler, bulbs, a piece of metal, screws etc..

I want a unique design

I am creative but when it comes to stuff like this, I think I am a bit limited. It was a night before the party when I already came up with my crazy hat designs, I want to stay away from glue and glitters that I just used anything that I can insert in the holes of the knitted hat and tied it tightly to assure myself that it will stay intact in whole duration of the program.

I bought the white mask without any idea what to do with it, But I ended up painting it using an ordinary watercolor, then made  it appear like it is also wearing the hat, so the impact of my hat can only be seen when I turned my back..

These Group Used an Ordinary Hat

Creativity juwst went out from everyone even to those you don't expect to have it. My officemates obviously participated and came out with great hats which they really put extra effort to beautify..

Most of them thought of buying a simple native hat, and adorned it with real fresh fruits, real cooked cocktail hotdogs and Marshmallows, Artificial flowers and Christmas decorations. I saw some with a witch like hat which they adorned with anything funny,colorful and with gleamering lights. There are groups with tall hats that made them look like a group of magicians, some looks like a walking christmas tree, there are some that used baloons to adorn their hats and still look fabulous and unique, some just wore a Santa hat, and there are some who are practical enough to use a USED cellophane, newspaper, magazines, Christmas balls and even electric fan covers.

Though we all looked funny and different that day, we all enjoyed it, and feasted our eyes with different hats invented by one another. I was one of those who can't get enough of it, though I am not sure if I was able to take photos of every one, I guess I have some of the bests..

Best Hats

Choosing individual photos for my hub is like creating a crazy hats catalogue. I started with my favorites which I believe is a real stand out and the owners of those hats obviously took it seriously...

1st Photo: Her hat has a theme and it has something to do with the climate change, no wonder she has two Globes above her head

2nd Photo: A simple witch like hat which she adorned with christmas decors combined with a headband with hairy animal ears that has a built in battery operated bulbs that glowed on and off..I often saw kids wearing this on their heads, I think my officemate barrowed it from her granddaughter

3rd Photo A simple native hat adorned by a real banana

4th Photo: Her hats is made of chicken feathers, I think she bought is somewhere, I saw one store selling the same

5th Photo: I think she just bought a large horn, and adorned it to make it look like a christmas tree above her head...

6th Photo: One of my favorites, simple balloons that he attached with plastic fly catcher...it looks like a fire on his head

7th Photo: Ordinary hat adorned by violet Christmas balls

8th Photo: Ordinary native hat adorned with cooked cocktail hotdogs and marshmallow

9th Photo: Hat made from a Newspaper

10th Photo: She reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood, she was the only one in that type of hat, so in a way her hat was unique

11th Photo: Another simple native hat adorned by artificial Ponsettia flowers

12th Photo: Hat made from magazine and used call cards

More hats

13th Photo: Native hat adorned by real fresh banana and grapes

14th photo: Hat made of used brown paper and a box of Pizza which had lots of weird things inside

15th photo: Obviously her hat was a huge size tetrapack of Dutch Milk....

16th photo: A Filipino native bag that we called bayong, with a feather duster, very funny indeed

17th photo: Asimple bonnet with a christmas tree image, and Mickey, he used spring to attach Mickey's photo to the tree

18th photo:  I think it was the Bucket or container of Chicken when you order a barrel or bucket eitheir for KFC or Jollibee, beatified and renewed using christmas decors

19th Photo: Her hat was made from used cellophane with a ribbon on top which she got from the gifts that she received...

20th Photo: This one made me smile, his crazy hat is made of chicken feathers and Christmas balls..

21st Photo: I had a hard time identifying the materials she used but the steel like thing is like the one used in the some lamp shade, then she adorned it with Christmas Decors, her colored wig and mascara complimented that hat

Parade of the finalists

Though I believe everybody deserves to win, only two winners will be selected, maybe because of too many entries, the Group heads were just asked to choose among their groups at least 4 participants 2 males and 2 female that wore the best Crazy hats, regardless of number of people they have in their groups.

Because of limited number of finalists and prizes too, many other good entries were not selected to join.

But in the end, I still think it's best to include everybody in the parade.. They all deserved to be seen, and for me they are all winnners.

      Yup, this is the hub I was thinking about. Wildly creative! Just looking through this display of colors, hats, faces - makes me dizzy almost. Interestingly, some people look pretty no matter what they wear; even the funniest hat cannot hide their natural attributes. Others, well, perhaps not so much... Very original, I am glad you had fun amongst your friends.
