DIY: Lettered Beanie

_MG_6882_post

After seeing lettered beanies everywhere from the punk tween bloggers to the edgier sides of fashion week, I knew they were a cold-weather style hit. Perusing online led to finding that these beanies, with any given saying from “vogue” to “boss”, even the kitschy “meow”, ranged in price from $24 all the way up to $50. I thought to myself, “for a beanie!?” Then I thought I could make that, for cheaper. Yea, it’s not breaking the bank, but I can’t resist getting a tad hands on with a DIY!

I bought a beanie and iron-on letters off of Amazon for less than $5. I don’t have an iron, but found I could use a hair straightener in the same way (ghetto-fab-rigged). You will also need a basic cotton tee shirt, even if using a real iron. hair beanie 120131129-185856.jpg

Cut your letters out and arrange them on your beanie as you’d like them to look. Be sure not to cut your cat’s tale no matter how in the way he puts it. Put your tee shirt around the inside and top of the beanie and iron each letter about 1 minute, let cool and peel off. Do this for each letter, then let cool before wearing.

Could this BE any easier!? It’s chic, quick, and budget saving. _MG_6866_post _MG_6870_post _MG_6885_postWhat do you think of this DIY? Would you make your own lettered beanie!? What would yours say!?

I’ve definitely been toying with the 90’s grunge comeback with this look; I’ve had this shimmery dress FOREVER but have always had difficulty styling it, but I think I’ve nailed it here. The 90’s would be proud. I’ve also been doing this thing where I attach/embed the music that inspired the title of each blog post, do you guys like that? I figured it’s a good way to incorporate and add new things to my blog and share some of my musical faves with you! Let me know if you readers like it or find it a bother!?

I’ve finally gone out on a mini-shopping spree and purchased some fashionably relevant necessities! For instance, this jacket from the Army/Navy surplus store was only $10, and I’ve worn it literally everyday since I got it! Also, sneaker wedges! Mine are BDG brand and were bought at Urban Outfitters, and again, I’ve worn them everyday since I got them. They’re soooo comfy but after 4 days in wedges even I think I need a break!
