Things You’ll Need
Phrase copied onto paper
Carbon paper and stylus
Fine line permanent marker (optional)
Needle and invisible thread
Step 1: Transfer the Lettering onto the Hat
Print the saying “vacay all day” on paper using a fun script font. The type used in this project is a free font called “Autumn Chant” printed in 160 pt. Or, if you’re really talented, you can write the saying in your own handwriting. Once the type is printed, cut around the words and position them on the brim of the hat. Place the carbon paper under the words, and use a stylus to write over the lettering, transferring the font to the hat.
- If you don’t have a piece of carbon paper and a stylus, you can use a fine-point permanent marker to poke holes in the lettering every millimeter or so. This is another effective way to transfer the words to the brim of the hat.
Step 2: Adhere the Sequin Ribbon to the Script
Focusing on one letter at a time, run a bead of craft glue along the outline and lay the sequin ribbon on top. Cut the ribbon at the end of each word, and add extra glue under the last sequin to keep the strand from unraveling.
Continue to adhere the sequin ribbon to each letter with the craft glue. Let the glue dry overnight to make sure the sequins are completely attached.
Step 3: Tack the Sequin Ribbon to the Hat’s Brim
To really make sure that the sequin ribbon stays attached, use a needle and invisible thread to hand-tack the ribbon to the brim of the hat.
Step 4: It’s Time to “Vacay”
Throw on your new hat, and “vacay all day” no matter where you are!
