Hats (Wide Brim Floppy Diva)

Today's post is to show you how easy it is to take your favourite hat and give it a different look for the upcoming season. 

If you like this wide brim style, treat yourself to a floppy diva hat. My flower pin look works just as well on a cloche or a fedora. You won't have to spend more than a few pounds on the flower pins.

I bought this lovely pure wool hat and even though I love the beaded bow applique, I had three black flowers just waiting to be used.

If you wanted to adorn your own winter hat, you will need:

Fabulous wide brimmed floppy hat in a muted, winter colour
3 fabric flower brooches

Summertime is not the only time to wear flowers.

To start, take your hat and brooches and make sure you are sitting in good, bright daylight.

Open up the pins.

Attach your first pin across the bottom.

*Tip: The trick to pinning your flowers is to set the pins in a triangle. After you have fixed all the flowers in place, fluff out the petals.

The three brooches should now blend and look like one big frothy black peony.

If you had always wondered why people buy black flower brooches or where do they pin them, I hope this little project will encourage you to buy three black lace flowers next time you see them.

It proves you can be super-chic even in cold weather!

Have fun :)
