I know it’s a little late to be making these for New Year’s Eve celebrations, but as I was making these with my kiddos yesterday at work, I thought it would be the perfect DIY to share with you too! These are so easy to make and they’re a perfect craft do with kids. Make them for New Year’s parties or for your child’s next birthday party. :)
Here’s what you’ll need:
Supplies: (clockwise) colored paper, stretchy string, stapler, scissors, curling ribbon, tape (not pictured), party hat template
Step 1: Download the printable party hat template here.
Step 2: Print on your favorite colored paper/cardstock (or use as a stencil to trace onto thicker paper) and cut out along solid lines with scissors.
Step 3: Cut 3 or more 16″ lengths of curling ribbon. Make a knot in the middle to hold them together.
Step 4: Curl the ribbon ends.
Step 5: Tape your ribbon knot to the back of your party hat cutout, at the top vertex.
Step 6: Cut out a 16″ length of stretch string. Staple the two ends to the two dots indicated (be sure to staple on back side of party hat cutout).
Step 7: Knot the ends around the staple to secure.
Step 8: Your party hat should look like this on the back now. Roll up the hat and staple the ends together in the indicated area.
Step 9: Time to party!
