i know, i know... a fashion accessory isn't exactly within my purview here at homewardFOUND.
but if you hang it on a wall or a door, it's decor. wink.

i recently dolled up one of my straw hats to wear to a party at the beach,
and it was so easy and so much fun that i decided to share it here on the blog.
i have a feeling you'll be inspired to make your own -
for your head, or as a perfect summer home accent!

continue reading to see how easy it is to embellish a straw hat for summer...

the hat that i embellished for a beach party came from Party City - for a whopping three dollars.
i gathered up a few simple elements and create a floral clip to make it more festive:

a fabric hibiscus flower from a Dollar Tree bunch, a simple hair clip,
 and two small paper palm leaves from a party centerpiece decor/craft kit from Target -
you'll see the rest in some of the holiday decor i will be sharing this fall!

the paper palm fronds are scored in the center, so i folded them forward
and then gently bent the ends of the fronds forward.
those were hot glued to the hair clip (four for a buck at Dollar Tree).

i pulled one pale yellow hibiscus off of a bunch from Dollar Tree,
and hot glued it to the hair clip, in the center of the palm fronds.

to attach the clip to the hat, i slid the metal prongs between a row of the raffia weave.
then i grabbed a pair of lense-less (broke 'em!) white sunglass frames
and tucked them into the raffia, to add a fun vintage beach vibe.

not only did this baby keep the sun off my very pale pink face,
i received many unexpected compliments on my 'vintage' hat!

i had a second idea for embellishment, so i grabbed another hat...

the 'hatband' is a length of cotton crochet lace,
 with a strand of vintage chandelier crystals attached to it.
(years ago, i made these with wire in them as one version of my original 'junk queen crowns'TM)
they were already in a circle, so they slid right over the crown of the hat.

two yellow hibiscus are paired with two cotton thread tassels
and a bit of vintage lace as leaves to create another floral clip.
to adhere it to the hat, i clipped it to the hatband. 

as usual, ALL of the embellishments on these hats are removable -
so i can use everything in another project!
(you'll be seeing these floral elements again in other projects this month, too)

it would be oh so easy to hang one of these hats on your front door or in your entry hall
as a sunny summer home decor accent - that can decorate YOU, too!
