DIY Kentucky Derby Floral Hat

Make a gorgeous floral Kentucky Derby hat for under $10!

The Kentucky Derby is next Saturday, May 6th and we'll be hosting a backyard get together to watch the race. It's our first ever Kentucky Derby party that was inspired by a recent outdoor photoshoot I did with Hayneedle (more on that time come)! I created some fun DIY decorations for the party that I'm excited to share with you this week, starting with these floral derby hats!

I don't know about you, but when I think of the Kentucky Derby, these elaborate hats worn to the event come to mind first. That, and mint juleps! The good news is, you don't have to attend the race in person to dress the part. You can make your own DIY floral hat for under $10. If you're hosting a party, you can even set out the supplies to allow guests to make their own. Read on to see how easy these are to make!

DIY Home Sweet Home Wood Sign

Make this pretty floral wood Home Sweet Home sign for easy DIY decor!

While I'm far from an artist, I love making my own art to decorate our home. Thankfully there are all sorts of things that you can make that don't require paint and a paintbrush! I made this Home Sweet Home art using a wood slat sign and colorful precut felt flowers from Oriental Trading. While I'm awful at freehand painting, I can manage stenciling, so I used letter stencils to create the words. The result is a happy and colorful piece of home decor that is perfect for spring!

Floral Monogram Desktop Art

Make this monogram desktop art from mini canvases and floral rub-ons. A perfect personalized Mother's Day or birthday present!

It's time for the April Supply of the Month Challenge, and we're starting with a blank canvas - literally! These 4"x4" mini canvases were the chosen supply for the monthly craft challenge with Oriental Trading. I thought they would be just the perfect size to prop on a desk or nightstand with a little easel. I decorated mine with a monogram and pretty floral art, to make a pretty piece of personalized art that would make a nice Mother's Day or birthday gift.

This project is particularly fun because it involves coloring - check it out!
