Moms, Grandmas and all the women in your life will adore these pretty straw hat pins! They’re easy to put together and oh-so-festive!
What you'll need:
- Small straw hat (about 3 or 4 inches wide)
- Small silk flowers and berries
- Hot glue gun
- Pin back
How to make it:
Tie a piece of raffia around the rim of the hat. You may find it easier to tack the back in place with a dab of hot glue so that it doesn’t slide off while you are tying a knot or bow. Tie into a knot and trim the ends or make a pretty bow.
Decorate the rim of the hat with small silk flowers and/or berries. Use fall colors to highlight the season.
Hot glue a pin back to the back of the hat.
