DIY Slogan Straw Hat


I've been seeing these straw hats all over the instagram lately and figured why not try make one? You can also personalise the writing to suit you. You don't need many materials, time or much skill to make one :P It's a great DIY to do in an afternoon no waiting for paint or glue to dry - super easy and quick :)

DIY Slogan Straw Hat
All you need is:

  • Hat - I got mine from Kmart for $7 
  • Hot glue gun (I tried craft glue as well, but did not find it very effective)
  • Sequin string or ribbon 
  • A pencil and scissors 


Pick the Words 



First you need to decide what word or phrase you are going to write on your hat. I chose Sea You Later because I'm a sucker for puns but here are a few others online if you are looking for some inspiration.


DIY Slogan Straw Hat


Lay Out and Trace 


I started laying the letters out free hand for the first two words, but would definitely recommend tracing onto the hat first! It makes your gluing a lot easier!

Trace your letters onto the hat and line up the string or ribbon to check before going ahead and gluing.

Glue it on and Touch up


Now you are hot gluing you have to be prepared to move fast! This is kind of tricky at first but you get the hang of it as you go.

At the end I went over some areas with more string to make the words bolder and to cover up my gluing mistakes :P










And that is all! I hope you guys enjoyed it and try it yourself! It's easy and quick :) Let me know if you have one of these hats or have tried making one! What do you think of this trend?
