Cost: $5


  • Sunhat from the Dollar Tree or any straw hat will do fineĀ 
  • Scrapbook paper of your choice or any paper
  • 2.5" in Ribbon of your choice
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Black paint
  • Chip brush
  • Embellishments


  • Start by painting the rim of the sun hat with your black acrylic paint. Using a chip brush, dab until the paint gets in all of the sun hat crevices. Be sure to paint both the top side and underside of the sun hat allowing to dry in between.
  • Take two pieces of scrapbook paper and create a cone shape using my pattern.
  • Adhere with clear tape, double sided tape or hot glue
  • Then glue the cone to the top, unpainted portion of the sun hat.
  • Taking your wide ribbon, trim the base of your cone where it attaches to your sunhat. In order for it to work on a cone shape, I chose to create a 'ruffled' look by spacing out where I glued down the ribbon using a glue stick for guage.
  • Add your embellishments and secure with hot glue.
