Remove all tags from your hat.
Remove current ribbon from hat.
- Don’t just yank the ribbon off. Find where (or if) it is attached to the hat and pull it off starting there.
Wrap your new ribbon around your hat to measure length being sure that there is ½” overlap. Cut the ribbon.
Add a dab of hot glue to the front side of one end of your ribbon. Next, place the back side of the second end on top of the glue. (This should be as it was wrapped around the hat when you were measuring.)
Cut a small piece of ribbon that is as long as double the ribbon’s width. Wrap it around your glued seam as pictured. Secure in place with hot glue.
Slide the ribbon back over the hat, aligning the seam on one side. Secure ribbon to hat by placing hot glue on the seam and pressing firmly to a hat.
- Be careful when attaching to your hat. The glue may seep through the straw and it is very hot.
Remove 2 flowers from the stems.
Cut the remaining stem off of the back of the flowers and apply hot glue to one. Firmly press flower to the side of the hat opposite the ribbon seam.
Attach your second flower with hot glue next to the first.
- Place the flowers close together for a fuller effect. You don’t want any of the hat to show between them. See the picture for reference.
- It also helps to attach flowers with what would be the stem end of the flowers facing toward each other.
This is such an easy and beautiful DIY! It can be personalized to specific styles and tastes, too. This can be the perfect gift for the gardening mom or the fashionista mom. Whichever style your mom rocks, she will love getting this gift for Mother’s Day. Sweeten the holiday and make it spectacular for her with one of these awesome and totally free activities. Enjoy making beautiful memories with mom this year and have a very happy Mother’s Day.
