ok I can not quite rock the party hat yet but I thought I would make one that was really cute for my primary lesson. I started with a coral poke-a-dot cone and a whole lot of extras from my craft bins.
I love buying festooning from Zurchers. it comes in long rolls and I use it on everything from outlining posters to well party hats. Its such a fun thing to work with. I took about 3 inches and rolled it together and hot glued it on top of the hat. I added beads and tinsel to add a bit of glam as well.
The middle is where you can go wild. I liked the idea of using my initial I purchased these darling rounds as an alphabet from riflepaperco.com its such a beautiful place to shop for modern looking art and cards. I glued pompom fringe around the edge and layered a bow on top again all with the hot glue gun. (love that thing)
If you want to staple the ribbon on you can but it seems staples always get caught in my hair when I do that. So this time I again used the glue gun to glue on the inside and it held just fine. I added more festooning and rick rack and I was done. Fast easy and so much cuter than just a plan cone birthday hat don’t ya think?
