A friend brought this aluminum Uncle Sam’s hat as a hostess gift when she came to dinner a few years back right around July 4th. You can’t really tell from this photo, but it has a round flat bill just above the ring of stars. She had a pretty little pot full of primroses in the hat when she presented it to me. Just lovely! Well those didn’t last all that long but thankfully the hat did.
I stuffed it with a tight fitting styrofoam ball topped with red crinkle paper filler, stuck the little mylar spray in the middle, and surrounded it with dollar store American flags. I also stuck in two patriotic themed whirly-gigs, one in red and one in blue. So festive for the Fourth of July! I love to pull this decoration out every year.
Hats off to Uncle Sam!
