Custom Color Monogrammed Cap

 

These days I'm super picky with what I wear. For me, it's all about color and lots of it! So I thought it would be fun to design my own baseball cap using a Joy iron-on letter. I chose the letter "M" for Michelle and Mom...a win- win for me!

 
To make a hat like this, you will need the following:
  • Plain white baseball cap
  • 1 large Joy letter
  • Permanent markers
  • 90% rubbing alcohol
  • Spray bottle
  • Shimmery metallic or glitter paint, paintbrush
  • Parchment paper, hot iron
Color your hat all over randomly with the markers, then take it outside and hold it over a plastic bucket while you spray it with the alcohol. The alcohol will cause the colors to blend. 

Leave the hat in the sun to set the colors, then thin some metallic paint with water and brush it over the hat. Leave the hat outside in the sun to dry again.

Position your letter on the front and place a piece of parchment paper on top (this will save your iron from picking up any paint residue from the hat). Press firmly with a hot iron, following the Joy package instructions.
