First add some ribbon

Cut the ribbon to fit around the hat with extra length left so that a bow can be tied. Tie the ribbon around the hat and secure it into place by hot gluing it and then tie a bow with the remaining ribbon.

Then, cut the stems of flowers and add them

Next, using the wire cutters, cut the stems of the flowers down to about five-inches in length. Lay your flowers where you want on the hat and glue them into place.

Next, add the rest of your embellishments

The hat is the focal point of your derby outfit so go big or go home! Add embellishments that will make your hat stand out. Use gemstones and glue them in a unique pattern on your hat to help elevate the look.

There you have it! A simple way to elevate a normal hat by making it perfect for the Kentucky Derby or a Kentucky Derby watch party. This Kentucky Derby hat will be the focal point of your look, so make it stand out!
