DIY Vacay all Day Beach Hat!

This is my one week countdown to paradise!!
I am in desperate need of some Vitamin D, sand in my toes, and flamingo floatie floating (say that 3 times fast)!!
If you've been following KPApreps, for a while you know that I can't say no to travel DIYs! I made this DIY Vacay all Day Beach Hat and am so happy with how it turned out, I might have to wear it on the plane! Continue reading below to see the step-by-step tutorial and click here to see my other beach hat DIYs!

  • Beach Hat - I purchased mine at Target but you can find these at any department store
  • Parachute Cord - I found this hot pink cord at Walmart but Michaels sells a ton of colors, too!
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors - Preferably sharp scissors as the cord is thick!
  • Pencil

Step One: Using your pencil, sketch out what you want to say on the brim of the hat. I recommend using a short phrase so that you don't fill up the entire brim!
Some beachy examples:
On Holiday
Beach Bum
Fun in the Sun
Do Not Disturb

Step Two: Following the pencil lines, start to hot glue your cord to the brim of the hat. I recommend gluing 1-2 inch sections at a time. When you are at the end of a letter and don't want to connect to the next, cut the cord (lol). You may need to cut near the base of the scissors as the cord is thick!

That's it!
I think this might be my easiest vacay craft to date!

Now grab yourself a refreshing beverage and catch some rays!

XOXO, Karly
