5 Ways to DIY It... Designer-Inspired Ideas to Up Your Beanie Game

I know it's probably in my best interest to refrain from talking too much about the weather, it being the stereotypical boring topic and all, but Ohio is seriously like a live reenactment of Frozen these days. I've considered changing my profession to human ice sculpture. It at least seems like an easily attainable goal, if not incredibly lucrative. What I'm saying, in rambling fashion, is that it is cold. Really cold. And we all know, just like moms/teachers/camp counselors/weather aficionados everywhere have told us countless times before, the best way to stay warm is to cover up that melon.

I've been loving the beanie craze lately, especially since you can scoop them up for under $10 at places like Topshop, Forever21, and Target.  But if you want to add some personality to your basic beanie, I've got a few quick and easy designer-inspired craft ideas. So go on, girl- get your craft on!
