Project #64 BloesemKids' Party Hats
Give your kid’s party an extra wow by creating custom party hats. These simple hats are quick, easy and oh so cute.
What you’ll need:
*Thin cardstock (or translucent plastic found in the craft store paper section)
*Pen or pencil
Cut party hat to size – flatten an old hat brought home from a friend’s party as a pattern.
To decorate the hat, draw and cut out a simple shape relevant to your party theme. Remember to draw the reverse image on the back of the card stock.
Roll the card stock into a cone and tape together. Take care that the tip of the hat comes to a nice point.
To give the decorations a 3D look, cut thin strips of card and twirl them with a pen or pencil.
Attach decorations to hat with double-sided tape.
With the tip of the scissors, make a small hole in the hat. Thread the elastic through the hole and knot. For extra strength, stick a piece of tape over the knot. Cut the elastic to size and repeat for the other side.
You’re ready to Party!
