Paper Crafting Week - Part 5: Party Hats


For the last day of my week-long paper crafting round up,
I wanted to show these fabulous ideas for Custom Party Hats.
Isn't this the most adorable thing? Doesn't it make you want to say, "Why didn't I think of that?"
Every little girl would feel like a princess with her very own, made-just-for-her party hat.

The fabulously creative mind of Lil' Luna deserves the credit for this one. She has a tutorial on Oopsey Daisy that shows all of us how easy it is to create a one of a kind party hat using pre-made hats and a few embellishments. Here are the basics:



Step One: Gather your materials including circular stickers such as vinyl dots or
scrapbook paper dots or even office supply colored circles, some pre-made party hats,
crepe paper, glitter, glue, hot glue, etc.


Step Two: Add the circular stickers to your party hats.



Step Three: Ruffle your crepe paper fringe with a sewing machine.





Step Four: Add some fringe to the top of your hat as well.



Step 5: Make a paper rosette from scrapbook paper.



Step 6: Add a glittery birthday girl number and that's it! Ca-ute!!



Birthday Girl has another tutorial for a simplified version of a party hat.
She uses 12"x12" scrapbook paper for the hats which is perfect for matching any party theme.


This one involves a little sewing like the first example, but if you don't have a machine, I think you could cut the crepe paper into fringe and glue a few layers to the bottom of the hat, too.


Materials: 12x12 scrapbook paper, cone hat for a pattern,
1 roll of crepe paper, double-sided tape and elastic cord.

She shows us how tocut a pattern for the hat, and then ruffle and fringe the crepe paper edge.


Just a few simple steps to fabulous!



And before I go, I had to show another adorable version by Art Glitter Blog.
This one has me swooningand wishing my girls were little again.
Can you believe how cute this is?

What a fabulous week of ideas! I'm so inspired now to go into the weekend
and craft with paper -- I hope you are, too. Happy Friday Everyone!
