Spice up your Sun Hat
Ladies, the sun is beaming and summer is just around the corner… you know what that means…

it’s time to pull out your SUMMER HATS!!

Spice up your Sun Hat

I love hats! Nothing adds a little ‘extra’ to your outfit while shading your face like a sun hat!

But hold the phone…these hats are just far too boring. They are in need of a serious makeover! So, I decided to dig around my closet to see what could make my hats better and I discovered that belts, sashes, head pieces, and bow ties make great hat accessories!

Remember how I told you a few weeks ago in this post that I have a hard time getting rid of clothes and accessories?

This is why:

There are endless possibilities! I love to take one thing and use it in a completely different way. You never know when you will need to spice up a hat right?

So if you don’t own a sun hat- HURRY go buy one! I purchased this hat at Target for $2.50! Now it just needs a little TLC- and this little Target hat will be a couture hat in no time!

First, I found a white shear scarf that I wrapped around the hat.

I then added some ribbon I had left over from this project and tied it over the fabric.

Then, I threw on this feathery embellishment I made.

Oh yeah! I suppose I should show you how to make that feather lovely, huh!?

 First, I got some felt and reinforced it to make it stiff. Then, I glued on a pin so I could pin it anywhere.

Then for the fun part!.

I grabbed some feathers and glued them to the felt circle.

Then I added these:

Note- if you take sheer fabric and cut it into a circle and hold it over a flame- the ends will curl in. It’s magic. Also, I love the scrapbooking section for embellishments like the pearl stickies- so easy!

And ta-da! A much more exciting hat!

    What fun! This would be a great mother daughter activity - I think the time spent making the hat together would be just as precious as the lovely hat you create. :) Thanks for the inspiration.

      I took it from a hair bow that was already made up. Sorry I should have mentioned that little detail. But I think you could make something similar to it with ribbon or maybe just finding an old bow you are no longer using?

    The hat is so adorable when embellished this way! I also love the entire outfit and would like to be able to click on it and have it magically appear in my closet :-) .
