DIY Personalized hat





Hi lovelies! I am sharing with you something a little different today. I don’t know if you have, like me, seen these personalized hats everywhere you go (on Instagram at least!) with phrases like “Out Of Office” or “Tequila, Please!”. Turns out they are not cheap!!! And if you have a couple hours to kill – in my case I put on a movie and multitasked – you can do it yourself for a fraction of the price! It is super easy, all you need is a few things that you can get at Walmart, Target, or Amazon:

A simple straw hat

A bottle of fabric glue

A bunch of sequins


A marker

The first step is to trace the words you want on your hat with the marker so you can have an idea where to put the glue. When that’s done, use the glue stick and apply it on the letters (I did one letter at a time so my hand didn’t smear everything when working). To make things easier I used tweezers to place sequins one by one, slightly on top of each other so it didn’t leave much space between them. Wait an hour or so to make sure it is all dry and VOILA!

Super easy, fast or at least faster than ordering online and waiting to get it delivered, and you get to pick what ever quote you want (if you are getting married or know someone who is, this is a super cool idea to write the new name). I decided to go with Beach Bum since I’m going to Mexico in a few weeks!

If you do decide to give it a try, make sure to let me know because I would love to see how it turns out! XO
