Today I am sharing a way to turn your old straw hat into beautiful decor for your wall or door.
Follow the easy instructions below.
- Straw Hat
- Faux Flowers
- Ribbon (2 yards)
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Floral Wire Cutter
- Poly Fiberfill
I bought this hat years ago for a vacation I went on with my family. I think I may have worn it three or four times in the past five years. So instead of throwing the hat away, I decided I would turn it into an awesome repurposed project.
The first thing I did was stuff the inside of the hat with fiberfill. The filling helps the hat opening keep its shape.
Next, I cut about one yard of ribbon and glued it around the head of the hat.
I used the floral wire cutter to cut the faux flowers from the stems, and then I glued the flowers on the brim.
Finally, I cut some more of the ribbon to make a bow for the hat.
This was such a fun and simple project to do in under an hour, and the bright colors are perfect for Summer.
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Lovely, very airy and pretty. I used to make these in the early 90’s had a blast, and sold a ton of them. Nice to see them making a comeback
