How to Make a Derby Day Hat
Derby Day is upon us. It’s time for seersucker, mint juleps and all those fabulous hats. If you find yourself invited to a party this weekend and have no fabulous hat, don’t panic. Grab a beach hat and be prepared to say, "Why didn't I think of that?" Bonus: There’s no sewing or gluing involved!
Dig out your beach hat. It’s about to get a classy upgrade. If you don’t have one, you can find several options for less than $20 at Target or stores like TJ Maxx from well-known designers.
Buy a couple of fake flowers from the dollar store and cut the flower bud off the stem. Most fake flowers should just pop off so you might not have to cut them. Pierce the plastic base that holds all the fabric petals in place with a safety pin like you’re making a brooch.
Repeat for as many flowers as you want.
Pin the flowers on the hat. I recommend a cluster of pins on one side so you can have a big swoosh going on with the brim on the other side. Classy.
