I’m a major fan of hats with big brims. I snagged up a wool hat to add to my collection during a sale at Forever 21 the other week. I liked that it was plain because that meant I can add my own touch to it.
I’m a DIY supply hoarder so I happened to have all the things I needed at home, but it’s very easy to find similar items at a local craft store. Or if you don’t have one nearby I’ve posted the links to the materials below so you can buy them online.
Black Thread (optional)
Grab your hat. Measure how long the bead strand needs to be.
String together the black and silver beads, alternating every other with a bead needle and invisible thread.
Once you’ve made the strand long enough, tie the two ends of the thread together to create a circle. Use a match or light to fuse the ends together.
Attach the bead circle to the hat with some thread by looping the thread around and over the beads. Do this every few inches along the bead circle.
I used black thread instead of the invisible thread for this step because it’s easier to tie the ends and I thought it still blended in well. If you want to continue using the invisible thread, go for it!
