1. Cut your stencil shapes

Cut out the individual shapes from your stencil sheet. You can play around with the composition on the hat this way.

2. Paint through the stencils

When you’ve settled on your design, lay your first shape in place on the hat and dab some acrylic paint on it. Use the colors you love. 

Adding paint

Make your composition as busy or as plain as you’d like.

Just be careful not to smudge any shapes that are still wet!

Adding paint

Once the paint dries, your original piece is ready to wear!
