Add a little glam to a Men's beanie with scrapbook pearls. The drying time takes a while, but it's worth it!
Equal parts edgy and sweet, I'm head over heels in love with this DIY! The pearl flat backs - which I found in the Scrapbook section of Michael's - add a feminine touch to this maroon Men's beanie I picked up at Target. Inspired by the classic vibe of pearl details, I knew I had to use them in a cool weather project.

  • How to make a beanie. Pearl Beanie - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your supplies...

    - Beanie
    - Flat Back Pearl Embellishments
    (From the Scrapbook section at Michael's. I bought 2 packs of 56 each, and used about 34 on EACH side of the beanie)
    - Fabric Glue
    - Recommended/Optional: Sewing Pin
    (To help with precision and ease during glue application)

  • How to make a beanie. Pearl Beanie - Step 2
    Step 2

    1) Lay the beanie on a flat surface and determine the placement of the flat back pearls. You'll be working with one side of the beanie at a time.

    Flat back pearls from the scrapbook section will typically have an adhesive backing, but you'll obviously need a much stronger bond. That's where the fabric glue will come in.

    Note: I spaced the pearls about 1.75 inches apart. There was about 2 inches in between the "rows". You can use a straight edge while determining each row, or you can just eyeball it!

    Step 3

    2) One by one, add a dot of fabric glue to the beanie. Repeat until the entire side is complete, then let dry completely. Repeat Steps 1 & 2 on the reverse side. Once that's dry, you're good to go.
