How to Make a Party Hat

IMG_7047

Every birthday child needs the don the special celebratory attire of the ‘birthday hat!’

Every party package that I create includes various party hat designs that are ready for just this job!  So to make the process of assembling one of these easier, today I am sharing a step by step guide.  And if that is not help enough, I am also providing a free printable party hat of this particularly cute striped navy and white design!

To make this party hat, you will need the following…

  1. Party Hat Printable
  2. Pair of Sharp Scissors
  3. Scotch Tape/Hot Glue
  4. Ribbon
  5. Embellishments (optional)

Start of with printing you party hat on heavy white card stock (I would recommend 65lb card stock).  Using the guidelines, cut out the hat with scissors.

Once you have the party hat cut out, roll the paper into a cone shape with the dotted line side under the finished edge.

Once you’ve rolled the hat into the cone shape, tape/hot glue in place.  I used scotch tape which can look a bit of a mess, so the other option is to use a the hot glue gun for a cleaner look.  Whatever you choose, this is the back side of the hat and so…what you don’t see is no big deal :)

Next, choose a coordinating ribbon and trim two pieces to the lengths you need to tie a nice bow once on the birthday child.  Tape or Staple the ribbon to the inside of the hat and keep in mind where is the front.

I decided to make this hat from my son’s first birthday cake smash so I added a shimmer jigsaw chipboard number “1” which is made by MakingMemories (available in most scrapbooking /craft stores).  It is really up to you with how you want to embellish the hat; a pom pom on top, some fringe on the bottom.  So many ways to personalize and make it your own!

Once the Privates completed their Mission they were awarded their Medal of Honor!

Using store bought favor medals I re imagined them as pin on medals, a little cutting, folding, glue and a pin, they were ready for the troops!
