If you have been anywhere near Pinterest lately, then you know all about this trend. Since summer is literally days away (even though in Tennessee it already feels like summer, it was 95 degrees at 7pm last night…..yeah.), and we all need to be taking care of our skin. So, let’s do it in a cute way! These slogan hats are the perfect addition to your pool/beach/lake bag, or just to amp up your summer style. Plus, these are totally customizale, and insanely easy to create on your own, want to find out how? Keep reading!
What you will need:
- Any straw hat that your heart desires
- Super duty glue, or fabric glue
- Sequins! Yay!
Step 1: Decide on your slogan!
This is what is going to set your hat apart from others! This also will make a pretty amazing instagram photo, so think about that! You definitely need to make it your personal style, have fun with it. I think this would be amazing for birthdays, holidays, and especially honeymoons or bachelorette parties! This is such an easy thing to personalize, and would be a great gift! Here are some ideas:
Step 2: Find a hat
I would highly suggest one with a wide brim so that you have plenty of room for your design, but it is totally up to you. I have seen this done with things like fedoras as well, if that is more your style. You can get a hat for pretty darn cheap, and if you have the kind of craft skills that I do, don’t invest in a really nice one. Thing along the line of these:
Step 3: Get to decorating!
This is where you can go wild. Even if you don’t want to put a slogan on there, you can totally make a design. One thing I suggest is using individual sequins. Yeah, it will take longer than if you just did a sequin trim, but it will look much neater. All you have to do is write out what you want your slogan to be with some sort of glue, and then just place them down, let it dry, and enjoy your brand new hat!
Hopefully you got it all sorted out! If you are not into crafting, but still want an awesome sequin hat, then you can find them online! I have two of my favorite examples to show you, but definitely put your googling to work! There are tons out now!
