Tropical Touch Hatband Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

You'll love adding a little more to your favorite hats with the right supplies. Cynthia used a colorful silk ribbon wrap to bring a Tropical Touch to one of her favorite gardening hats. You can even bring some sparkle by adding Swarovski flatbacks to the ends of the ribbon. With the right embellishments, this everyday essential is now ready for the beach! You can find more inspiration for decorating your hats in this Artbeads Cafe.

Step one:
Glue the Swarovski 8mm starlet flatbacks in Crystal Paradise Shine and the Swarovski flatbacks in Crystal Scarabaeus Green onto the ends of the hand-dyed high tide turquoise, lime and light mocha super silk wrap with dark turquoise edges using Gem-Tac adhesive. Allow to dry.

Step two:
Wrap the silk around the hat of your choice and tie it so the embellished ends are on display.
