DIY Derby Day: A Fascinating Fascinator!


I recently had a birthday, and my girls treated me to a Tea at the Taschen Library at the Joule Hotel! Plus, I do share a birthday with the Queen of England herself so it was only appropriate for a royal occasion! :):) So cool and such an amazing experience! And what do you wear to High Tea, but a beautiful hat or fascinator?! And with the Kentucky Derby right around the corner, I knew I had to make one!


Hobby Lobby had everything I needed! I grabbed lots of bow, feather, flower options and a set of headbands. My real score was this mini straw hat!


I started by securing the mini hat to a neutral colored headband with a little needle and thread. Quick and easy!


The rest was a cinch! Each flower and bow and feather attachment was either a pin or a clip. My assembly was finished in five minute, and I love how it turned out!! Spring deserves color, and this teal and coral happen to be two of my favorites!



Supplies you will need to make your own fascinator!

  1. thin headband
  2. miniature hat
  3. flowers or feather clips/pins
  4. needle and thread
  5. glue gun (optional)
