DIY- Batty Sun Hat.

Hello everyone and welcome to today's blog post! Recently I picked up this plain sun hat in Penneys as the weather had been really really warm. For some reason the black version of this hat is really expensive to buy everywhere lately so I opted for this one instead. I soon got bored of its plain appearance and so decided to jazz it up with some bats! I drew the bat, cut it out with a craft knife and used it as a stencil. It took a few tries to get a usable stencil but overall it was was fairly quick and easy, surprisingly so! 




Black fabric paint, paintbrushes and a thingy for pouring the paint into!




BAT! Bat bat bat. 




I used the one stencil for the whole thing and once I was careful not to transfer any of the black around, it worked perfectly! I used masking tape to secure it each time I painted a new bat. Its not perfect and the paint ran a bit but I'm really pleased with how it turned out! 




 I replaced the brown string around the rim with this piece of black lace as a finishing touch.




Haz halo of bats now! 



Thanks for reading!
