Make a Hat Stand Out of a Lampshade

Casa Quickie: It's a Hat Trick

If you ever find yourself with an excess of hats and lampshades, and shortage of hat stands and lamp bases, you've got an easy-peasy hat stand in the making. I usually store my knitted hats folded and stacked on a shelf in my closet, but as for my woven hats, I prefer to store them with a little structure so they don't get bent out of shape. Unfortunately though, they don't make hat stands like they used to; hat stands and coat trees these days are one and the same. So I was pretty pleased when I was struck with some sort of divine revelation and realized the small spare lampshades I have lying around can be used as hat stands! It couldn't be easier: just set one on top of the other and you're done! Clever, eh?

I have a tip for storing hats. I use wigstands. The hats fit perfectly on them as if made for them. I use old ones and I would even buy a wigstand to save my good hats.

Oh no - definitely don't put it on top of a working lamp.

It is pretty handy! Just be careful if your putting it on a lampshade you use. I had one on my lamp as a kid and the heat from the bulb melted and deformed the shade. Hat was fine however.
