I have been wearing this hat on repeat, I love it!  After my one millionth wear, I decided that it needed a little style overhaul. By changing out the band with a piece of leather and a whole lotta spikes, it got a statement makeover giving it a whole new life. If you are feeling a little more basic one day, easily remove or exchange with a simple ribbon band. The options are limitless! Step and supplies after the break…

What you need:
AEO Hat
Leather
Screw on studs
Leather punch
Scissors
What to do:
1.Measure the circumference of the hat and cut two strips of leather that when overlapped an inch on each end will fit snuggly around the brim.
2.Using the leather punch, create two rows of holes along the leather strip.
3. Screw in each stud by pushing the back through the hole and screwing on the top.
4.Connect the two ends of the strip by doubling up the leather, punching holes through both and
5. Take the final band and put on your hat.
6. If you wish to make the band permanent, attach it with a couple dabs of glue. Done!
