Add even more pizzazz to your style by dressing up some of your favorite hats with beading components and other items. Cynthia started with a custom fabric band and then added seed beads and a lovely TierraCast button to make this hat stand out. You can find even more inspiration for decorating hats in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
