As a perfect fall accessory, Guest Blogger Josie, of Fine and Feathered, revamps a vintage-find to fit her personal style. We think it'd be a great complement to our autumn lookbook outfits, don't you? ♥


DIY Simple Hat Makeover




-Any hat


-Accessories of your choice for the trim (feathers, a chain, ribbons, a bow, etc.)


-Hot glue gun



I thrifted this vintage hat a few years ago, but unfortunately it's been one of those items that has sat at the top of my closet, unworn and unloved. So I decided to give it a quick little makeover! This is simple and universal enough, you can really use it to update almost any hat!


It originally had a chain that was a tad cheesy looking and was basically falling off already, so I carefully removed it and saved it for another project (of course!). I then added a small amount of hot glue to the back of each feather and applied them, over lapping just a bit.


So easy! Right? Now it's just a little more modern, but still has the amazing vintage charm that made me fall in love with it in the first place!
