This week make yourself a hat that you’ll be using every weekend this summer! Take a simple canvas hat, add a little embellishment, and you have a fun accessory to bring to the beach. We used a striped grosgrain, but you can use anything from jute to beaded trim to personalize your headpiece!
Plain Beach Hat
1.5” (38mm) Stripe Grosgrain
1. Glue the beginning of the ribbon to the back of the head.
2. Continue glue around until you reach the point where you started.
3. Cut the extra ribbon, but leave a little extra to fold over.
4. Glue the final piece down so it connects to the other piece. Let dry.
The ultimate in winter accessories this season? The pompom hat. From fashion bloggers to tiny toddlers, the pompom hat has taken over the city by polar vortex. And we’re all in. Who cares about hat hair when you’re rocking a classic beanie topped with a fun and funky pompom? Our favorite thing about this trend? It’s so easy to DIY. So grab a basic beanie, a fluffy fur pompom; and prepare to be both stylish and toasty at the same time!
What You’ll Need:
Large Fur Pompoms
Needle & Thread
1. Place your pompom at the very tip of the hat.
2. Use a heavy-duty needle to sew it into place. Try not to get the fur caught in your stitches!
