Read on below to learn how to make your own DIY Daisy Floppy Hat for Mother’s Day (or for spring)!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- A floppy summer hat
- Yellow, white, and black paint
- Paint brushes
- A paint tray
- Paper and a pencil
- Painter’s tape (optional)
Here’s How to Make Your Own DIY Daisy Floppy Hat:
For this project, you can use any floppy hat you have. If you don’t have one, but want to make the craft anyway, you can pick up some really nice ones from the Target. Also, if you have a drawstring or anything of the sort on your hat, make sure to remove it before you start working.
I actually did this project with my mom which was so much fun! She loves flowers, so this was a super cute hat for her to keep afterward.
For this hat, I used paint that I had on hand, so if you already have some in your craft drawer, make use of it! Just make sure that your paint is suitable for fabric. To start, we took yellow paint and painted the entire crown yellow. If you want to make sure that you get a nice, clean line where the crown meets the brim of the hat, line the bottom of the crown with some painter’s tape.
Once you have the entire crown painted yellow, let your hat rest until the yellow paint is dry before moving on to the petals.
After the yellow paint is dry, grab a piece of paper to either draw your petal shape in its entirety and cut it out or simply fold your piece of paper in half and freehand a half-petal shape with your scissors. Now that you have your petal template, take a pencil and lightly trace the petal, going all the way around the brim of the hat. If you’re finding that you still have space left over once you’ve gone completely around the brim, erase your pencil markings and simply adjust your petals with slightly more space between them so your petals look pretty equal distant around the hat.
When all of your petals have been drawn onto the brim of your hat, you can now start filling in the petals with paint. Again, I simply used some paint that I had on hand and used white Plaid paint.
Once you have filled in all of the petals with the white paint, let the hat sit to dry again to see if you need to make any touch-ups later.
For my mom and I, we just did small, simple touch-ups to the white to make sure the petals were completely filled in.
After sitting with the white petals for a little, we decided to add a thin line of black paint around the edges of the petals to make them pop even more. I used some black paint we had on hand already. I truly think the black paint made the petals stand out and overall made the daisy look even cuter (if that was even possible!).
Let your hat sit overnight to dry completely once you’ve finished painting, and now you’ll have a Daisy Hat that you (and Mom!) will be wild(flower) about!
