Party Hat_1

I shared this simple  kids party hat tutorial over on 100 Layer Cakelet a few weeks ago, but I thought I’d share it here as well to include to my  DIY gallery.  I made these hats for Rylee’s second birthday party, and they were actually a big hit with the kiddos.  I’ve always been a sucker for yarn pom-poms, so of course, I had to include them as the topper for these!

Supplies:  Yarn, paper mache cone (from a craft store), white elastic cord, paint/spray paint to decorate your hats.

Step 1.:  Create a set of yarn pom poms to place on the top of your party hats.  You can see the full tutorial for creating yarn pom poms here

Step 2:  Decorate your hats however you want.  I decided to keep mine simple and just add a little white paint.  For the polka dot hat, I just stuck on circular stickers, spray painted the hat, and peeled off the stickers after the paint was dry….revealing the cardboard.

Step 3:  Poke a hole on each side of the hat with a nail (or whatever works!)  Measure out the length of elastic cord that you want and thread it through the holes on either side of the hat.

Step 4:  Using a glue gun, attach your yarn pom pom to the top!  Enjoy!
