I am a huge fan of boater hats, but seriously, right now, who isn't? I especially loved Marc Jacobs flat top version of the boater hat and tried scheming ways of getting one. Perusing Michael's, I found some cheap straw garden hats and came across a baby or doll sized hat. I simply hot-glued a metal barrette clip inside the hat. This was as close as I could get at making a boater hat, under $5 that is.
