Materials Needed: Exacto knife, Cutting Board, Cardstock, Scotch Tape, Tissue Paper, and Floral Wire.
I looked at a few stores for party hats that were all one color but all I could find were large hats. I think that hats look much cuter on the small side, so I made my own. I bought a pack of small hats and made a template. Here is a pdf template of a party hat to print out if you need one. Just print it out and use it to cut out the shape onto cardstock.
After you cut out the shape put the tab through the slit and tape it down on the inside. You can decorate the hats anyway you want but I will show you two that I made. The first one is the flower hat. Follow the directions here to make the napkin ring-sized pompoms. Then poke a small hole with your exacto knife where you want to put the flower. Tape the wire on the inside of the hat. Attach ribbons and voila! The second type you just measure out a two inch wide strip of tissue paper the length of the bottom of the hat. Double up the tissue and fold it in half. Then cut it 2/3 of the way through to create the fringe. Wrap it around the bottom of the hat with the fringe facing upwards. Scrunch the fringe so it is fluffy. Then take some leftover fringe and wrap it around the floral wire, scrunch it up so it is fluffy. Then put the wire through the hole at the top and tape it on the inside. Add ribbons and there you have it!
