This may be one of the best DIY’s I’ve shared yet. By now I’m sure you’ve seen the famous Eugenia Kim Hats, if you haven’t prepare to fall in love! I couldn’t justify paying their hefty price tag, so I came up with a simple way to make the same hat in under 15 dollars.
Yes, you read that right. You can seriously add this to your closet for under 15 dollars. All you’ll need is a hot glue gun, a floppy hat (a purchased one from Forever 21 for $10) and sequin ribbon (I bought mine at Michaels)! Prepare to be amazed at how simple this DIY is:
- Choose your phrase and sketch it out on the hat (it’s embarrassing how much I practiced this). I chose to make mine say “do not disturb” but some other popular sayings I’ve see are “Out of Office” and “Beach, Please”. I’m very tempted to make a “Wifey” one for my honeymoon in Africa!
- After you sketch out your phrase get your sequin ribbon and hot glue gun ready. I added dabs of hot glue every few centimeters and pulled the ribbon tight to make it straight. Move very slowly, because hot glue guns leave strings, which can easily make you ribbon messy.
- Once you’re finished, let the hat dry for 20-30 minutes just to be safe!
- Head to the beach and enjoy!
