Hat Tip

Hello Lovelies! Hope you had a great weekend!

It's royal wedding, horse races, and beach season so I've been in need of a hat. But I didn't have a fun hat. :( What is a girl to do?

I went on a search. Sadly I got outbid on eBay for the hat I really wanted...

Probably for the best. I don't think I have the teeth to pull it off.... Just kidding Princess Beatrice! (Y'all know she reads my blog right?)


So I decided to do a little DIY.

Here is my step by step instructions on how to make a fancy DIY hat for cheap!

1.) Buy a plain jane hat. It was easy to find one of those. (Especially when it only costs $12 bucks! Woo woo!)

2.) Have some ribbon around your house? Tie it around! Pin or glue it on the end. (I pinned mine, I couldn't make the commitment!)

3.) Buy a few large cheap fabric flowers (these were $4 at Claires or somewhere like that).
4.) Stick them close together and cover up where you pinned or glued on your ribbon.

5.) Ta-da! Easy DIY hat. :)

Great for a race or sunny day at the beach! Can't wait to wear it in Key West this summer!

Have you ever made a DIY hat?


  1. VERY cute!! I LOVE it!! Sorry you got outbid on Beatrice's hat. yikes! You look WAY better in your hat anyway. :)

    Me and Mr had fun pickin' berries,I actually have a confession to make,while pickin' berries@ the pond,I slipped down the bank into the briar patch and I yelled for Mr and he had to come drag me back out of the briars,it was so funny,you would have had to be there,teehehehe.
    Thank you,have a great weekend!
