PEICD (PROJECTS EVEN I CAN DO): HOW TO MAKE A GLITZY PARTY HAT
First off, thank you everyone for your sweet birthday wishes. You all made my day!
I've always wanted a fancy party hat, so this year I decided to make my own for my birthday. This is another super easy tutorial. It took about 20 minutes to complete, and I love the outcome.
--Pack of foil party hats (I got mine from Target for about $2)
--Strand of tinsel (I bought a gold strand at the dollar store)
--Glitter ribbon (found at any craft store)
--And of course, a lot of hot glue!
Step 1: The first thing I did was replace the elastic band that came with the party hats with a gold ribbon. To do this, I just cut the elastic on the hat and used the same holes to tie two strands of ribbon.
Step 2: Then I put a thin line of hot glue around the base of the hat and glued the tinsel garland.
Step 3: Next, I started wrapping the glitter ribbon around the hat. It didn't work to do this in one continuous strand, so I just cut sections and hot glued each on. The back doesn't look perfect, but that's ok.
Step 4: Then I took about a 3 inch section of the same tinsel I used on the base of the hat and put some hot glue in the middle and scrunched it into a ball.
Put some more hot glue onto the top of the hat and plant that fun little tinsel ball on top and you're done!
