Get ready for the Kentucky Derby. Create a one of a kind Kentucky Derby Hat with our silk flowers and this easy tutorial by Southern Girl Weddings.
Materials: You will need several focal flowers, accent flowers, greenery, feathers, and 2” ribbon. You will also need scissors, stem cutters, a hot glue gun/stick and a hat.
Step 1: Wrap the ribbon around the base of the hat and secure the ribbon every so often with a few small dabs of glue around the base. Make three loops with the ribbon and secure them with the hot glue to the base and brim of the hat.
Step 2: Trim flowers stems and greenery down to about 2-3 inches in length. Place the focal flowers (magnolias) over the loops of ribbon and attach them to the hat with hot glue.
Step 3: Add the greenery around the focal flowers and secure with the glue.
Step 4: Curl pheasant feathers with a curling iron on a low setting. Add the accent flowers and feathers, securing with hot glue.
Use any combination of our lifelike artificial flowers, greenery and ribbon to create a Kentucky Derby Hat of your very own. If you do make your own hat we'd love to see it! Please share on Instagram with hashtag #Afloral .
