    hey guys i am new here but have been a lurker for a long time. so here is my problem i am graduationing (sp*) this year and want to put something really cool on the top of my hat so everyone in the stadium can see it. i dont want anything cheesey like i love mom or whatever and i want something that stands out. i thought about tie-dying it but wasnt sure if it would stick to the material. any suggestions would help greatly thanks in advance

    you could do spin art on it, and give it a sort of tie-dyed look, it's not that the dye wouldn't stick to it, but how would you tie a graduation cap? It's got cardboard in it, so it won't bend all too easily or niceley. If you really want to tie-dye it, you could tye-dye a t-shirt, and then maybecover the cap with that (and cut a hole for the tassle) it and hot glue it to the cap (along the edges so it dosen't show too much.

    you could also make some really cool stuff outta fimo, and then hot glue that to the cap, for a really cool 3-D kinda thing, that would be really fun I bet!

    good luck!

    Use fabric pens to draw out a cool design or pattern. You won't be washing the hat so it shouldn't be a problem. I have to say things have come a long way since I graduated. had I so much as put a tiny peace symbol on mine or anything I would not have been allowed to take part in it.

    that's a good idea. just don't let them see. write something that means something to you.

    At the graduation I went to a lot of people had tape on their hats, the kind you can write on and different people wrote diffent things on it.

    Some people had letters with the tape and they spelled something out I couldn't tell what it was.

    I don't think they'd allow anything like that in my school, but you could always tie dye some material then sew it so that it could fit like a cap on the hat, you know? so you could just take it off if they asked you to.
