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.
