LIFESTYLE | DIY Bridal Hats | Pretty Pear Bride



I am beyond excited that the weather has finally decided to break… YAY!!! And with this warmer weather comes being outside and enjoying it. So I decided to share this amazing DIY for your bridal party with a little help from one of my favorite brands, Michaels.

This May, Michaels is launching a wedding microsite,, which will be your online DIY wedding headquarters this wedding season! I’m so excited to share this because I have always loved dipping my toes into the DIY world and this is the perfect time to help launch the website. Michaels has asked me create a unique DIY project to be hosted on the new site for people to view.

And of course they are the ultimate in DIY because they have an extended assortment online where you can shop thousands of online exclusive pieces, plus more if you love.  You can even shop top categories – decor, floral, favors and invitations, including exclusive David Tutera merchandise and content, along with hundreds of easy DIY wedding projects and ideas.

The DIY I chose would be a fabulous bachelorette party gift for your girls. And it’s super easy to do… come on, you know if I can do it anyone can do it.  This project would be perfect to do during your bachelorette party with your girls or for you to work on ahead of time and surprise them.


Step 1 – Decide where you would like to place your words

Step 2 – Pull the letter sheets that you need to spell either “Bride” or “Bridesmaid”

Step 3 – Pull each letter that you want to use one at a time and place them on the hat

Step 4 – If need to reinforce the letters, add liquid glue to the back for the letters (optional)

Step 5 – Hold the letters down for 5-10 seconds to let liquid glue harden

Step 6 – Once complete let hat and letters dry for 10 minutes before use
