DIY 3D SLOGAN BEANIE HAT
I am in love with die cut beanies atm! The best ones I have seen are from the brand Funky Bling, however at a £100+ price tag they are completely out of my price range. This tutorial is a really simple but effective way to make an ordinary beanie more exciting without breaking the bank. For the purpose of this tutorial I will be recreating Funky Bling's 'ICON' design as pictured above.
What you will need:
- Beanie hat
- Two different colours of craft foam
- Paper and pencil
Draw out your design on paper and measure each letter to make sure they are all the same size. Then cut them out.
Place the templates on your first sheet of craft foam and draw around each one. Carefully cut each letter out.
Cut away the outer lines of your templates. Place your altered smaller templates on your second sheet of craft foam and draw around the design.
Cut them out and glue them together with their corresponding shape.
Simply add your studs to the design and then attach them to your beanie hat. To make the foam more weather proof you may want to spray a protective lacquer over the top. These can be purchased in 'matt' or 'glossy' form.
And you're done!
I hope you found this helpful. If you decide to give this a go I'd love to know how yours turned out! Thanks for reading :)
