“Vacay All Day” in This Fun DIY Summer Hat

Ah, summer: it’s the time of year when you want to spend every single day out in the sunshine. And whether or not you’re soaking up rays in your backyard or on a holiday, now is the time to take it easy. Let everyone know that you’re hanging loose with this playful straw hat. You can wear it to the beach, by the pool or under a shaded tree, and you won’t have to explain how you feel — the phrase on your hat’s wide brim will say it for you.


This hat is SUPER easy to make and you can adjust it to any words or font you’d like.


I really can’t wait until summer vacation to hang out in this very chair in this very backyard. (Thanks Penny!)


Just gather up a few supplies and head on over here to my eHow article and I’ll show you how easy it really is.

    I love this idea and love all of your refashioning. I would love to start doing this but don’t know how to start. Do you see a piece and then see new life in it or do you search out specific pieces to refashion based on an inspiration you have? I love your site and welcome any advice.

    Another great repurposing tutorial that I just had to share on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Thanks Beth for sharing. Have a lovely day!

  3. That’s funny, I spiffed up my straw hat yesterday also. All I did was change the ribbon, but what a delightful difference. Took a pic just for you, but no way to attach here.

    I found one just like this on Anthropologie and I was definitely going to make out, just deciding on something sassy to put on it has me stumped!

    You have such great ideas. Love this hat.

  6. I love the hat! I know I haven’t commented much but I really am reading your “learn how to sew” posts and I can’t wait until the next refashion contest——– that’s coming up soon, right?
