PICS: Aretha’s Hat Makes Ornament Debut

(WXYZ) – The hat that dazzled millions of people during the inauguration of President Barack Obama, is now being offered as a Christmas ornament. Aretha Franklin’s stylish big-bowed hat was the inspiration for the glittery-glass ornament. The ornament’s designer hopes it too will be a big fashion hit.

Curtis Posuniak is the brain-child behind the ornament. He says the minute he saw Aretha’s hat he knew he wanted to make a tiny glass version of it.

They will cost $43 a piece and will be sold at Bronner’s in Frankenmuth, the Ritz-Carlton in Dearborn, some area gift shops and by email at klassicsbykurtis[at]comcas[dot]net

Curtis says his Custom Glass Ornaments are made in Poland by Polish artisans who have a passion for hand-crafting the gems.
