Pom Pom Floppy Hat DIY

After seeing hats with pom poms all over the stores (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here) I knew I wanted one. I mean who else is obsessed with pom poms? But the ones I saw in the stores were all over $20, which I thought was insane. As someone who can handle a small DIY project, I thought, why not try a pom pom floppy hat DIY? And guess what? I did! The hat ended up costing $7.50, way cheaper than any of the hats you find online. 
So I headed to that dollar section at Target, the floppy hat I bought was $5 with a red, white and blue ribbon around the crown. I can't find the exact hat on the website but you can find similar here, here, here, or here. You can also walk into your local Target and probably find the hat that I used. The pom poms were purchased from Michaels, but you can find similar here and here
 Aside from the hat & pom poms you'll need a hot glue gun & glue. The first step for me was to remove the ribbon around the crown of the hat. I think it's cute but that wasn't the aesthetic I was going for. It was very easy to remove and it left a little bit of fuzz left over, but that was okay because I was covering it with pom poms. 
Choose whichever poms are your aesthetic, I went for a pale pink, white, light blue, navy and kelly green because...well that screams me, doesn't it?
 Next I laid out the way I wanted the poms to look on the crown of the hat. I chose the color I liked the most for the front and center - aka the light pink.
 After laying them out it was time to glue them down. I put a generous amount of the hot glue on each pom and then pressed them down around the crown.
 And voila! The hat is complete. Y'all, this was so so so easy! Seriously, it took me about 10 minutes and half of that was waiting for the hot glue gun to heat up. AND it only cost $7.50 !! Seriously, if you are into pom pom accessories this summer and you want a cute sun hat - make your own. It's so easy.
 I love it and I can't wait to wear it this summer!
