Make your basic dollar store beanie into a stylish brimmed cap in just five minutes. Delia at Delia Creates used a recycled yogurt lid and a few minutes of sewing to transform a $1 hat into a brand name-inspired brimmed hat for her son. You can find basic beanies (aka stocking caps, watch caps, ski caps) at the dollar store in the winter, and recycled plastic in your pantry just about any time of year.
