July has finally arrived! I hope you have an incredible beach vacation under your belt or coming up soon. While it’s so much fun to go to the beach, break out your new swimsuit (maybe it’s the new bandage bikini we made a few weeks ago) and just unwind for awhile, sometimes the sun can be a little intense. In situations like these, you’ll be glad you brought a cute, wide-brim, DIY beach hat.
I’m so excited to release a whole series of beach day DIY projects I’ve got planned over the next few weeks! We’ll be making even more swimsuits, coordinating beach towels, and even a beach tote (or two!) But now I’m just getting ahead of myself. For today, let’s start with this adorable, five minute DIY beach hat.
In today’s tutorial, I took the same steps and applied them in slightly different ways to different hat shapes and hat materials to show you how versatile this project can really be. Don’t be afraid to experiment and think outside the box! After all, isn’t that what makes DIY so much fun to begin with?
For today’s tutorial, I broke it down into two separate styles. The first is a boho, tassel beach hat that is my new personal favorite and the second, a funky pom pom hat.
It’s funny how often I go back to these basic trimmings. On Creative Fashion Blog, so far we’ve made everything from Pom Pom Shorts and Gladiator Sandals to Pom Pom Purses. Together we’ve added tassels to Slippers, Stacking Rings, refashioned Lace-up Shoes, and even Crystal Gemstone Bracelets. They just add such a cool texture and detail and are so crazy-simple to make!
So without further ado, let’s move on to the tutorial!
