Marbleized Party Hats DIY

Have you ever used a marbling kit? I bought one a few weeks ago and have been testing it out on different craft projects. (Someday, it would be fun to do a whole marbleized party!) I love the way these party hats turned out. And with the kit, they were super easy to make . Don’t miss the DIY instructions after the jump! (PS – Watercolor Party Hats.)

Materials: Marbling Kit, Uncoated Paper, Large Baking Pan, Party Hat Template, Pencil, Wooden Skewer, X-Acto Knife, Scissors

Step 1: Print and cut out our Party Hat template.
Step 2: Trace the template onto your painted paper and cut it out.
Step 3: Prepare the marbling mixture by using the instructions given in the kit.
Step 4: Dip the cut party hat into the mixture. Remove it, and allow it to dry.
Step 5: Once the paper is dry, shape the party by fitting the tabs into the given slots.
Step 6: On each side of the hat make criss crossed cuts with your x-acto knife (or, you can always use a miniature hold punch if you have one.)
Step 9: Push the elastic through each hole (I use my x-acto to do this) and tie a knot to hold it.
Step 10: Wear and enjoy!
