Step 1: Materials List

To do this, you will need:

  • a fedora in need of a complete makeover
  • thick ribbon
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • scissors
  • fake flowers

Step 2: Cut Ribbon

First, wrap the thick ribbon around the fedora, right below the rim, then cut where it overlaps.

Step 3: Glue Ribbon

Then, glue the ribbon in place. At that point, you will want to, then, fold the end of the ribbon and tuck it inside with a dab of hot glue. From there, you will cover that area up with a flower.

Step 4: Add Flower

Then, grab a fake flower (or two) and attach them to the side of your fedora. For best results, you can glue the flowers along the overlap section of the ribbon to cover it up.

Step 5: Ready to Wear

Now, place on your head, and you're good to go!

Note: I also decorated a black fedora that already has a black sequin trim, so I added this black and white polka dot flower on the side.
