Silhouette cameo machine or exacto knife
Iron with cotton setting



1. Prep the surface of the hat by making sure it’s clean.

2. Download the flamingo silhouette image and letters at the bottom of the post and either use them as a template and cut them out of the iron-on vinyl with an exacto knife, or use an electronic cutter to cut them out.

3. Arrange the flamingos around the hat how you want them to be placed and use the instructions on your iron-on vinyl to secure them to the hat.

4. Repeat the same process on top of the flamingo pattern with the vinyl letters. Use the ridges of the hat to line up the letters.

5. Allow the hat to cool down, and what the flock, how cool is your new hat?!
