Hats

Step 1:  Attach your Command Hooks in the places you’d like to hang your hats. (Let set for 10-15 minutes.)

Step 2:  String about 2-3 feet of fishing line onto the needle. Feed the needle through the point of the Witch hat on the outside of the hat. Bring the fishing line through to the interior of the hat. DO NOT pull all the fishing line through the hat, leave it on the outside of the hat.

Step 2

Step 3:  Remove the needle and tie the fishing line around a safety pin.

Step 3

Step 4:  Use the safety pin to attach a light stick, it can be LED or the temporary kind you can find at Halloween in stores.  Just make sure it’s lightweight.

Step 4

Step 5:  Now just tie a loop in the end of the fishing line on top of the hat and hang it on the command hook.
