What I Wore: A Fashion and Personal Style Blog

WhatIWore: All weekend long I’ve been soaking up the sun… under the safety of my newly painted sun hat! This project only took about an hour start to finish and was pretty inexpensive too. I’ve been doing a lot of projects lately using ScotchBlue tape (those shorts and a bold wall) so I have multiple rolls sizes of tape on hand. For this project, I used 3/4” wide painter’s tape.  Here’s how I did it!

Supplies:

  • Floppy Brim Hat
  • ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape
  • Acrylic Craft Paint
  • Small Paint Brush

To start, decide how thick you’d like your circles to be (along with the space between) and start taping off the portion that will remain unpainted.  If your hat is like mine, the circular pattern used to sew the hat together creates a spiral, so you’ll need to measure off the natural lines of the hat to create perfect concentric circles.

If your hat is entirely woven (as opposed to sewn, like mine), you might want to use a ruler for a consistent circle. Because your hat is round and your ScotchBlue tape is straight, take your time work around the curves, slightly gathering as you go. Be sure to press the edges of the ScotchBlue tape down firmly!

You could tape off your entire hat or only do the brim and base of the crown like I did. When painting on your stripes, take your time and use a semi-dry brush.  Once complete, let the paint dry, remove the tape and you’re ready for a day in the sun!

On a side note, my hat blew off when I was in the water (hence the glossy look in the first and last photos), but none of the black paint was affected!
