This another fun update to a dollar store find as part of my Dollar Store Dress Up Series. In addition to this Jessie hat, you will find ideas for a Sheriff Woody, Sheriff Callie, Cowboy and Cowgirl Princess, Army Men, Swat Man, Superhero Cape, and others.
The Dollar Store is a gold mine for finding things that are inexpensive that just need a little extra love and imagination. This tutorial works for the Sheriff Woody hat, Sheriff Callie hat, and the Cowboy Princess. Each have small additions or omissions, depending on the hat you are doing but the basics are the same.
Dollar Tree has several dress up items now and they are adding more all of the time. They have a fun cowboy section that includes several colors of cowboy hat. So far I have seen black, red, pink, brown, and purple. Every dollar store is different so you may have to call around to see what each store has in stock.
Here’s what you need for the Jessie hat.
1 red cowboy hat from the dollar store (Dollar Tree)
1 pack of shoelaces from the dollar store (they come 8 pair to a pack and have white and black)
Rope trim (I found this at Joann’s for $1.50/yard
Hot glue gun and something to poke holes
These hats are perfect for birthday parties too! You could have a party full of Cowboys. They cost under $2 to make so they are the perfect party favor and dress up item.
If you are planning on taking your kids to meet Woody and Buzz and Jessie in person, you need to plan your family vacation with Get Away Today. They are THE experts in all thing Disney, they have been doing it for 25 years, and can help you create the perfect vacation for you and your family. My favorite thing about them is that they have a great Layaway Plan.
You only have to put $125 down at the time of booking and then have until 2 weeks before you travel to complete the payments. It makes these vacations so doable! We are going to Disneyland in a few months and I cannot wait to watch the excitement on my boys’ faces when they meet them.
