DIY Embellished Beanie

Well fall is definitely in the air and as the weather cools it's time to bust out those cute toques. With one of my simpler toques, I decided to get crafty and add a bit of flair! I had some leftover pearls from my Pearl Bobby Pin DIY so I used those which had holes through them to be strung. You could also do this DIY with flat or "half" craft pearls and fabric glue as well.

So, to make your own pearl toque, you'll need your pearls, thread and a needle, scissors and a toque.  I laid my pearls out in a pattern then marked a small dot with a marker where they'd be so that I could easily begin stitching away. I plunked down in front of Netflix, watched a movie and that was enough time to stitch the pearls on and my toque was complete!
