Hat wall

I’ve never created a hat wall myself simply because I’m not a ‘hat person’. However,  I’ve seen others do it to great effect and what could be easier or cheaper? Hats have an instant impact and you can bargain that by the end of a party or dinner at your house everyone will have helped themselves and have turned it into a hat party.  Before hanging hats you just need to consider what type of hats you intend to hang and in what formation.  Have a look at the following examples for inspiration.

Hats, rather than art, add to the relaxed vibe of this readng nook.

    I am doing this. Flat cap, trilby, NY Yankees cap, old fashioned cricket cap. I think I have a sombrero somewhere too but it may look out of place.
