How to Decorate Your Hat for the Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is here and even if you aren't watching the excitement from Churchill Downs, you can still enjoy the festivities!

This morning, I joined my friends at Knoxville's Fox43 to share some ideas about how to decorate your hat for a Kentucky Derby party or other event. The most important thing to remember is you don't have to spend a lot of money to feel fantastic, just get creative and use what you have!

How to Decorate Your Hat for the Kentucky Derby 

Some items to consider using for Derby Hat decorations:
  • Rhinestone brooches or pins
  • Colorful silk scarves
  • Silk flowers or greenery
  • Real flowers or cut greenery
  • Feathers 
  • Mesh ribbon (such as the kind used on wreaths)
  • Grosgrain ribbon
  • Silk ribbon
  • Tulle or netting
  • Lace
  • Scrap-booking trinkets or accouterments 

I used bobby pins to fasten the different decorative items to the hats for a less permanent solution. You could also use a hot glue gun or floral wire.

Just remember that if you are going to wear the hat for an extended period of time, weight and balance could become an issue if you use heavy things.

But it's a fun project and a fun time to get dressed up and celebrate springtime in the south! I hope you were inspired to decorate your own Kentucky Derby hat this year! There's really no limit except your creativity!
