Add Some Glitter to Your Hat

This is my second project for this months Cricut Design Space Star challenge.  Our team chose to go with fashion and picked “pop of color” for the theme. I have noticed that hats have become very popular lately and while I don’t really wear this style, I still think it’s cute and I knew it would look good on my girls. So I decided to find one I could glitter up a bit. And how else should I do that but with some glitter iron on vinyl cut into a word or phrase. Two trends in one project!

This was a really quick project and you can take this idea in so many directions. I used my Cricut Explore™ to get the “hello darling” cutout. I searched a lot of what they had and felt this fit the best for my girls hat. It is actually a graphic with a wreath around it. To get rid of the extra drawing part, I hit the contour button in the box where you see graphics you have on your project page. Then I chose the parts I didn’t want and clicked off to the side to exit. I sized it to fit this kids hat and made sure to choose the “mirror image” option before cutting. A tip on cutting glitter vinyl: I have found this vinyl a little harder to cut than regular vinyl. I put it a notch or two past the iron on vinyl choice to make sure it cuts through. You will also need to use a tool to help get out the little tiny pieces.

I cut the words apart so I could iron on one at a time. That made it easier since it’s a bit more difficult to iron onto a curved hat.

I like how the glitter adds a little specialness to the hat. I really want to try to find a hat with floral on the front to do another one. Let me know if you see one somewhere, okay? :)
