How to Heat Emboss on Fabric: DIY Santa Hat

Add a fun phrase to fabric for the holiday season using the Wagner HT400 heat gun and embossing powder.

Hey y’all, It's definitely an untraditional Christmas around here with our love of all things blush and rose gold! Luckily I'm not the only one on the blush Christmas train (there's a few of us) and we all wanted pretty Santa Hats!

So I decided to whip up a few blush colored Santa Hats and then take things a step further by adding "Merry Christmas" across the cuff with a bit of beautiful copper colored heat embossing powder and my trusty heat gun!

The main attraction for these little hats is the embossing powder and while craft stores sell special embossing guns I just grabbed my little Wagner HT400 Heat Gun. It can heat at 450 and 680 while most embossing guns only have one setting so it's a bit more versatile than the average embossing gun and I love that I don't need a special tool.

Special heat torch for flow art? Nope I just use my heat gun. Special embossing gun for embossing powder? Nope I just use my heat gun. Special toaster oven for shrink plastic? Nope I just use my heat gun!

On top of that embossing guns typically need a little time to heat up once you turn them on whereas my heat gun is ready to go from the second you flip the switch.
