Party Hat Station DIY

by Danyelle Mathews

Party hats instantly make a special event feel more festive. Plus, kids love them. At your next shindig, wouldn’t it be fun to let the kids decorate their own? To make a party hat station download this party hat template and prepare a few hats before your guests arrive. Buy inexpensive and fun supplies like artificial flowers from the dollar store, pom poms, and googly eyes. Have glue handy for the kids to attach their desired adornments. Good ‘ol Elmer’s worked great for the pom poms and googly eyes. Hot glue is best for the artificial flowers. Choose a pretty satin ribbon that coordinates with all of the other supplies and enjoy seeing what your little guests create!

    I have never thought about a party hat station, brilliant idea. I may do this with my niece and nephew tomorrow, just because it’s friday and they are coming over. Thanks for the suggestion.

    What a darling idea! We could see this implemented at any party but also at weddings by just changing the shape of the hat from party cone to a pill box. What lady wouldn’t love to don a festive hat at a wedding?
