30th Birthday DIY Party Hat
In addition to making all my own decorations and desserts, I also set out to create a super fabulous 30th birthday DIY party hat. And because everybody should enjoy party hats, here are some instructions on how to create your own for any occasion.
- 1 headband
- 1 sheet of scrapbook paper
- Tissue paper
- Any other decorative fun things you want to add (I used feathers, styrofoam glitter balls, lace, beads, etc.)
- Hot glue gun
- Hole punch
Using the scrapbook paper, roll a cone in the desired height of your party hat. Fasten it together with the hot glue gun and allow it to dry. Punch a hole on each side of the cone for the headband to slide through.
Slide the headband through and start attaching all of the decorations as desired.
The first things I attached were the black feathers which I attached with hot glue, then the tissue paper (also attached with hot glue and secured with tape) and the styrofoam balls. [caption id="attachment_48340" align="aligncenter" width="475"]
