Hello friends! If you remember this post I shared a while ago, I made a little party hat. I've been meaning to do a tutorial. I decided to make one for my nephew (who will be born in less than a week) even though he won't be able to wear it for a few years:)
here's what it looked like:
super girly. I decided to make a more "manly one". Is there such a thing as a manly party hat? who knows. Haha. So if you want a girly one, follow the same steps but with girly colors/pictures.
the first thing you need to do is get yourself a nice, standard size party hat to decorate.
I covered all of mine with brown craft paper. A 1' square segment was the PERFECT size. I used the lef over pieces for decoration in later steps. once you've got it all covered, trim the excess to make it a perfect fit.
I added a piece of ribbon to cover the seam in the back (it matches the ribbon I used for the chin straps later on)
I cut out some semi circles and glittered the edges. Then I hot glued them around the base.
I made a pinwheel background and then cut out a circle using the excess craft paper.
I found a SUPER cute clown boy here and glued it to the circles.
I made a pom pom out of paper shreds and glued it to the top
then cut two ribbons for the new chin fastener
and of course, added a little tag:
and that's that.
remember to enter the giveaway--just a few days left!
have a lovelee day
