I finally tried it using the heavyweight interfacing (I love this) and some fabric.
I stuffed the inside and used a felt circle with slits. I cut 2 larger slits parallel to each other on the circle and then I glued it to the bottom of the cone. I took the headband apart, threaded it through the parallel slits and hid the seam under the felt inside of the cone. The only thing I think I'll do different when I make my "real one" is that I will cut the slits for the headband in the sit of the cone to see if it makes the hat more sturdy.
This probably makes no sense and I am awful at explaining things so....I'll stop here
