DIY Pom Pom Sun Hat


Pom poms are all the rage this season and I don't know that there's anyone who hasn't already fallen in love with this trend! They're so festive, fun and make the spring and summer so much more fun style-wise. ;) I've been seeing lots of embellished tops, accessories and shoes lately and I've also noticed that sometimes these pommed-beauties are expensive! Well worth it yes, but not everyone wants to drop $100 or more on a sunhat. Get in the DIY mood, because I'm sharing a super simple, quick and inexpensive way to make your very own pom pom hat! It couldn't be easier and it costs as little as you need it to!

Here's what you'll need:

*affiliate links

  • Hot glue gun
  • Sunhat (gimme all the floppy hats!)
  • Pom pom trim

This pom pom trim is from Amazon and you can go with any color under the sun (quite literally with this big bucket of pom pom trim, AKA heaven). A standard sized sunhat/floppy hat will need about 2 yards of the trim, give or take a little bit depending on how big the hat is. Mine used exactly 2 yards worth!


My floppy hat is from Target and it's $14!!! It's SO cute - it looks like it's one of those super expensive straw hats and it's literally under $15. (#winning) It's super simple to measure the trim; line it up around the rim of the hat and cut it accordingly. Once you cut it, hot glue the trim onto the inside rim. I glued it right at the edge so that as much of each pom pom can show!


Voila! A super inexpensive, adorable sunhat to wear all summer long! ;) I love this hat and it was less than $25 to make! The best part is now if I wanted to make another one with a different colored trim, I could for even less money since I bought this big tub of pom pom trim.



Is this not the cutest DIY?! I still can't get over how easy and quick it was to make. If you decide to make your own DIY pom pom sunhat, I'd love to see it!

XOXO -A

  41. So cute. I love how simple embellishments can completely transform an item. I love taking plain lampshades and adding sparkly fringe. Never would have thought to add something to a hat though. I have a new project now!
