Root Beer Float Party + Soda Fountain Hats DIY

by Danyelle Mathews

I can’t think of an easier party to throw than a root beer float party (especially during the summer!) Throw some big glass mugs in the freezer, buy your favorite vanilla ice cream and root beer, then invite over your friends. To make the gathering a bit more festive, you can craft up some cute soda fountain hats for everyone to wear. Enjoy!

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.)

Watercolor Floral Crown DIY

These adorable mini crowns would be the perfect addition to any little girls’ party. They’re really easy to make, and don’t require expert painting skills. In fact, they look better when they’re not perfect, even a little messy. Once you’ve painted a floral pattern, use our template (below) to turn it into a crown. Every little girl at the party will feel like a princess! (PS – Don’t forget about these pretty Watercolor Party Hats!)

Watercolor Party Hats DIY

Here is an easy tutorial to make Watercolor Party Hats. Watercolor is fun to work with because it doesn’t need to be perfect. Down below you’ll find our tips for getting the best, perfectly imperfect strokes. Every hat will be a little different, and that’s what makes them so fun. You can paint these in colors to match your party or just in a rainbow variety.


Floral Happy Birthday Headbands DIY

Happy May Day! These fun headbands are the perfect accessory for a spring birthday party. With just a little wire and some mini silk flowers, you can spell out an unexpected birthday message for the guest of honor.

Materials: Wire, Glue Gun, Small Flowers, Headband

Step 1: Bend the wire into the shape of the words. We found that leaving space between the letters helps to distinguish them. Be sure to leave a length of wire before the first letter and after last letter for attaching it to the headband.
Step 2: Using a hot glue gun attach the flowers to the wire letters. Make sure to keep the flowers neat by keeping them from filling the centers of letters like ‘p’, ‘d’, and ‘a’.
Step 3: Once the letters are covered, bend to match the curve of the headband.
Step 4: Attach the word to the headband by wrapping the extra lengths of the first and last letters around the headband.
