This week's DIY post is a collection of seven ideas for embellishing a simple beanie. We all want to keep warm throughout the winter but this doesn't mean we can't be stylish and get creative with a little DIY at the same time. Here are a few ideas to (hopefully) inspire you...
The beanie shown in the images below is one I picked up in the New Look sale for just £1!
First up is this night sky inspired design - a twist on the simple studded beanie with the addition of a few small star shaped studs | Supplies: star studs, round studs
For a simple yet edgy embellishment stitch on a length of chunky chain. You could even use an old broken bracelet or necklace | Supplies: a length of chunky chain, a needle and thread
As an alternative to the classic studded look move the hardware trend away from jewellery and onto other accessories by stitching on rows of mini hex nuts | Supplies: mini hex nuts, a needle and thread
For a subtle way to wear the tartan trend sew a patterned ribbon onto your beanie | Supplies: a length of tartan ribbon, a needle and thread
A girlier alternative to studs, small faux pearl beads are a pretty addition to any beanie. Stitch on at random (as shown above) or in uniform lines | Supplies: small plastic pearl beads, a needle and thread
If you like the studded look why not play around with different shapes? Triangles are great for creating all sorts of patterns | Supplies: large triangle studs
Vintage buttons may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think beanies but if you're looking for something more unique this could be it! | Supplies: vintage style buttons, a needle and thread
