Sun hats are the perfect accessories for both spring and summer. They block just enough shade and can be very fashionable. A great way to add to a plain and simple sun hat is sequin, specifically sequin script. There are so many cute sayings you could add such as “Chasing Sunshine”, “To The Beach”, or “Shell Yeah” as I chose to go with. This DIY sequin script hat is sure to be a hit anywhere you go.

This is so simple, you’ll be making hats for all of your friends. It’s easy, cheap, and super cute. I got my hat from Walmart for just under $4! It’s out of stock online but check in store, that’s where I got mine. They also had a few other styles as well. So here is how to make your very own DIY sequin script hat.

Do It

1. Lay out the sequin trim in the saying you want. You can either use a marker or tailor’s chalk (depending on your hat, the chalk didn’t show up on mine) and write out the saying you chose. I decided to freehanded mine.

2. Write out your saying in glue, a few letters at a time.

3. Place the sequin trim over top the glue and let dry.

My strap broke off shorty after this as you can tell it’s holding on by a string. 🙁 Good thing I know how to sew!

      It was pretty quick, I probably took me about 15 minutes to do and then I let it dry for about an hour!
