5 Cricut Hat Ideas You Have to Try

Today, we are talking all things hats. We use them to stay warm, keep the sun out of your eyes, or so you can avoid washing your hair for just one more day. Hats are extremely useful in everyone’s day-to-day but how much more fun would they be with some personal touches.

When your creativity runs dry, it’s hard to find inspiration. If you are itching for a new project, look no further. I have some crafty head-wear options for you. These can be as simple or as complicated as you want, and you can even recruit the family for a weekend of creativity. 

1. Customize Your Hat With Vinyl

You can choose names, phrases, or a cute pattern. Let your creativity go crazy with this one, and it’s a perfect gift for those who are super fussy and can never find anything that’s just right. Guess what, you can make it just right. 

For this project, you are going to need the following:

  • Cricut Maker 
  • Cricut EasyPress Mini
  • Everyday Iron-on Vinyl (choose whatever colors you want to use)
  • Hat

Now go crazy; plan out your designs (you can use Cricut Design Space for this) and get creative!

2. Personalized Baby Hats (perfect baby shower gifts!)

Have you got a friend who’s expecting a little one? Maybe you’re going over to meet the baby for the first time, and you want to take a small present. Or maybe you have been invited to a baby shower but have no idea what to bring as your gift. Sure there’s a registry, but it’s way more meaningful to create something yourself.

For this project, you are going to need:

  • Cricut Maker 
  • Cricut EasyPress Mini
  • Cricut Iron-on Mini Samplers
  • Cricut EasyPress Mat
  • Weeder Tool
  • Scraper Tool
  • Baby Hat

The obvious choice is to add the newborn’s name on the front, but that doesn’t always work (especially if they haven’t picked a name yet). So some other great options are to add the gender with a cute little message like “Mama’s Boy” or “Daddy’s Girl.” 

Remember, it’s likely that the baby will outgrow this gift fairly quickly, so adding a personal touch means the parents can keep it as a way to remember this incredible but fleeting time.

3. Faux Suede or Leather Tags For Your Beanie

While it is still a little chilly outside, I thought it was worth mentioning this adorable project that adds a bit of interest to your average bobble hat. If large lettering or detailed designs aren’t your thing, this might be the one for you. You can add discrete and classic personalization without taking away from the overall design of your Beanie (or any hat, really).

This project creates suede or faux leather labels to add to your hat. You can add your initials or a small design. It is a really nice and simple way of adding a little something to your design. Here are the things you will need for this project:

  • Cricut Maker
  • Cricut Faux Suede/Cricut Faux Leather
  • Matching Thread
  • Sewing Needle
  • A hat (Beanie or knitted hat works best!)

4. The Perfect Party Hats

Next up is the party hat! Perfect for children’s parties or the holidays when everyone comes together. 

You can really make these your own because there is no end to the variation of colors and designs you can add to these. You could even make blank party hats and involve them as an activity in your event—the kids can even color and design their own hats.

To make your own party hats, you will need:

  • Cricut Maker
  • Light Grip Mat
  • Scoring Wheel
  • Scrapbook Paper Pack

Mad In Crafts has some great step-by-step instructions above. 

5. A Beach Hat With A Twist

The summer months are slowly approaching, and you know what every well-prepared, crafty woman should have in her beach bag? A personalized beach hat.

No summer outfit is complete without a beach hat, and for those who like to stand out from the crowd, the average straw hat just doesn’t cut it. If you are done with the same-old summer hat, you need to try this. 

For this project, you are going to need:

  • Cricut Maker
  • Cricut Easypress Mini
  • Straw Hat (Your choice of beach hat)
  • Heat Resistant Tape
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pressing Pillow
