Make It : Festive Party Hats!
Posted by Blake Ramsey
Earlier this summer, I attended a girls getaway in honor of my dear friend's upcoming wedding. What a great weekend! We laughed, we danced, we celebrated, and we made party hats to wear while doing it all. The most fun was had making them, but I have to say, wearing them—and taking funny photos—was pretty fun, too!
Here are all the final products. Check out the gallery below for how-tos and materials.
1 The party hat base was made from a strip of poster board (the kind used for school presentations). Each piece, cut lengthwise, was enough for four hats.
2 Here is everyone, hard at work. Some people chose to keep a straight edge on their hat, while others cut a wavy, pointed, or notched top.
3 Holly finished hers, and started one for Dwyer, who was busy at the grill. Holly's technique involved using neon office stickers to spell out a name.
5 Everyone loved Sara's hat: The colors are great, and her attention to detail really paid off!
6 Each piece was a unique masterpiece! The supplies were very simple—stickers, sequins, rhinestones, and markers.
7 The bride-to-be and her sister.
9 Holly crowns Dwyer "Queen of the Grill."
And now for the best party hat maker—Alli's daughter Madden!
Ready to party in her new hat
