Paint a hat in the neons of the 1980s with SoSoft® Fabric Paint.


    • small flat brush
    • foam pouncer
    • canvas hat


    1. Find a plain white canvas fabric hat.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Gather the supplies including the 80s Doodles SoSoft Stencil.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Cut the stencil into smaller pieces to make it easier to place on hat. (I cut the stencil into four small pieces so I could pick and choose which designs to use and where.)
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Working one triangular section of the hat at a time, dab on Neon Pink, Neon Orange, Neon Yellow, Neon Blue, and Neon Green, each into a different shape. (I stenciled shapes onto the front two triangular sections of the hat.)
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Using the stitched pattern on the bill as a guide, paint Neon Pink into the largest section using a small flat brush.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Continue painting each arched section with a different color: Neon Orange, Neon Yellow, Neon Green, and Neon Blue. (See photo for placement.)
    12. Instruction #6
    13. For the other triangular sections of the hat, paint Neon Orange onto the right side section using a flat brush.
    14. Instruction #7
    15. Paint the left section and the two back sections of the hat in Neon Blue.
    16. Instruction #8
    17. Optional: If the hat has a velcro fastener on the back, stencil on more shapes with Neon Pink and Neon Yellow.
    18. Instruction #9
    19. This is a super fun project to add some colorful neons to your wardrobe.
