I have been seeing this trend on TikTok, yes, I know I got sucked in during quarantine and I no longer am ashamed to admit it.

No joke, people are so creative on that app!

I have seen so many people make this DIY their own. AND I AM HERE FOR IT (extra claps!)

Painting your very own hat!

I did a butterfly theme, but I have seen so many different versions. Boho, cowgirl, and many more designs you can simply search for some inspiration on Pinterest or TikTok, as I did!

You will need a hat!

I picked this one up from Amazon here!

Pencil, highly recommended do a "draft" with a pencil before going all in!

Acrylic paint.

I snagged these from Hobby Lobby, but I have seen them here for the same price!

A variety of paintbrushes.

Also snagged these from Hobby Lobby here!


This will protect your design from getting tattered and worn!

I got these gold foil flakes to add to my sunflowers, and they were a gorgeous touch!

First, create a design. Remember to draw with a pencil first (lightly), so if you make any mistakes they can easily be removed.

Use any brush size you feel comfortable with and start painting. My advice is to do a little at a time. You don't have to finish in one sitting!

Once your design is complete and dry, you can apply the gloss to protect the paint from fading or chipping!

Here are my foils, and sunflowers in my first sitting!

Remember, you don't have to be a professional to do this! We all have a little artist inside!

What design would you pick if you decided to DIY a hat?
