If you’re looking to upcycle an old straw hat into something fresh and fun for the summer, why not try this DIY donut hat tutorial that will help you revamp your old beach hat into a colorful sprinkled donut?

Instead of buying a new hat for the beach, it is much more cost-effective to transform a hat you already own into a fashion-forward customized accessory. To turn your had into a delicious donut, all you need is some fabric paint and a paint brush. Begin by covering the floppy straw hat with a layer of bubblegum pink paint. This will mimic the pink icing typically seen on sprinkled donuts. Remember to leave the top portion of the hat paint-free to act as the donut hole. Then you can add tiny colorful lines all over the hat to replicate the sprinkles.
