    Step 0 Example
  2. Gather the supplies including the 80s Doodles SoSoft Stencil.
    Step 1 Example
  3. 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.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. 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.)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using the stitched pattern on the bill as a guide, paint Neon Pink into the largest section using a small flat brush.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Continue painting each arched section with a different color: Neon Orange, Neon Yellow, Neon Green, and Neon Blue. (See photo for placement.)
    Step 5 Example
  7. For the other triangular sections of the hat, paint Neon Orange onto the right side section using a flat brush.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Paint the left section and the two back sections of the hat in Neon Blue.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Optional: If the hat has a velcro fastener on the back, stencil on more shapes with Neon Pink and Neon Yellow.
    Step 8 Example
  10. This is a super fun project to add some colorful neons to your wardrobe.
