My Christmas hat

I made this several years ago for a craft club party where we were all asked to wear Christmas hats.

The  hat must be about 40+ years old, bought to wear to a wedding I think, and originally had a stiff felt bow which I refashioned into a bezel to hold the tree in place - it's just a little free-standing fibre optic ornament, M&S I think.  With new batteries it's good to go again this year.

It will be worn with last year's version of this.  The sequins spell out Jingle Bells and there are several attached bells which do jingle.

That's a good one.  While I was at school I always used to win a prize because my dad was exceptional at it.  Last one I remember (Primary school), was a Christmas cake. 

Love that tree, I thought at first glance it was a candle.
