DIY Birthday Party Hat Tutorial
Ngoc of Skybox Event Productions is sharing her DIY birthday party hat tutorial today! The things that make an event special and successful are the little details. The hand-placed sticker on the invitation, to the paper straws placed in every guest’s drink, that extra attention to detail is what wows your guests! For a 1st Birthday party, the cuteness level is already at an all-time high. But, there is one way to make sure that your cute factor skyrockets, and that is a custom paper hat! These cute little throwback paper party hats not only look super adorable on the kids, but also as decoration and as accents in photos! In the post, I will explain to you the simple and quick steps to creating your own!
Supplies and Tools Needed for Party Hat:
- Party Hat Printout (3 examples below)
- Elastic string (the more colorful the better)
- Paper Scorer
- Hot glue gun
- Mini pom-poms
Step 1: Print party hat template or create your own design. Cut along black line. Below are 3 different designs from Happy Confetti.
Step 2: Fold hat up and make sure the insert tab is secure with tape. Use paper scorer to secure tape.
Step 3: Using mini hole puncher, punch hole on each side of the hat.
Step 4: Pull electric string through each hole and tie knot to secure in place.
Step 5: Glue pom-poms around the bottom edge to make a border and around the top.
Step 6: Use any of the extras that you have to customize it to the personality of the kids.
