The goal of Paper Hats is to show that all anyone or anything needs to shine is a second chance. Whether it’s a foster dog who was dealt a rough hand or a newspaper circular printed only to be never read, that with a little love, patience and creativity could be something amazing.
Our approach for the series was pretty straightforward. We raided our recycling bin for materials (newspaper, paper plates, even a few plastic cups) and designed elaborate headdresses and collars for rescue and foster dogs.
Half of all art sale proceeds from Paper Hats benefit Bella’s Bully Buddies, an absolutely fantastic local 501(c)(3) nonprofit 100% volunteer operated dog rescue and foster organization
