I am a self confessed hat-aholic. DD2 has no fewer than 25 hats. Around 10 currently in use, some too small and some in waiting. I would like to find a way to put some of them on display. Any ideas?
Just this week I bought 4 new ones at H&M! LOL

I don't have any advice, but I just wanted to confess that I too am a hat-aholic. My favorites are bonnets -- they are hard to find though, but my mom found a store that has lots. I am a sucker for any cute hat though!
Glad to know that I am not alone!

what about just hanging some pretty grosgrain ribbon between two eye-screws and getting some wooden clothes pins to clip them up with? you could jazz up the clothes pins with some hot glue and a little silk flower on each if you wanted something a little fancier. you could also do this vertically on the back of a door if you don't have the wall space...

I love how they display hats at April Cornell stores. They set the hat on a painted wooden candle stick, and it is sooo pretty. I think they stuff the hats with tissue paper to help hold the shape.
I'm a hat-a-holic personally, but sadly, DD screams when ever I put a hat on her...so far. Hoping shell grow into it...;)

If you don't want to stuff with paper (so it won't be so lumpy), I use a half- sphere foam "head" (it's small enough that it doesn't show under the hat). I 'borrowed' mine from the Children's Place (how they display the has there), but you can also buy a foam ball and cut it in half.

I saw the most adorable hat in one of the beginning scenes of the
movie, The Santa Clause 2.
There is a group of 4 girls and they are all wearing hats. I think that
2 or 3 of them are wearing this particular hat and it had a ruffle sewn
diagonally up and around the hat.
I'm making the hat sound completely bizarre but it was adorable.
So, since you are the self-confessed hat addict then maybe you have
spotted one while shopping. :)
