My new favorite summer accessory is this straw boater hat. I have to fight with myself every morning not to wear it. If I didn't do that, I would seriously wear it everyday. It seems to add the final touch to every outfit I have in my closet. So naturally I thought of another excuse to wear this beloved hat. Enter 4th of July! I thought some red + white striped ribbon could make this cutie festive. Then I went one step further and stamped a white scarf I had lying around with some nautical blue stars. So, meet my DIY 4th of July outfit. This hat + scarf combo will literally take you all of 5 minutes.
Wrap ribbon around hat covering any current ribbon. Alternatively, you may remove the current ribbon. Secure with tape or glue.
Cover work surface with newspaper or a plastic garbage bag. Place scarf on top of protected work surface. Stamp stars in a random pattern across the scarf. Allow to dry for several hours before handling. Set a cloth on top of the stars, and set with a hot iron.
