Yes or no, we liked Rylee’s breakfast birthday party? Yes!
We asked Kelli to share how she made the sweet handmade birthday hats too, so that you all can make them for your little one’s upcoming party. They’re so simple but add such a thoughtful touch.
Yarn, paper mache cone (from a craft store), white elastic cord, paint/spray paint to decorate your hats.
Step 1: Create a set of yarn pom poms to place on the top of your party hats. You can see the full tutorial for creating yarn pom poms here.
Step 2: Decorate your hats however you want. I decided to keep mine simple and just add a little white paint. For the polka dot hat, I just stuck on circular stickers, spray painted the hat, and peeled off the stickers after the paint was dry….revealing the cardboard.
Step 3: Poke a hole on each side of the hat with a nail (or whatever works!). Measure out the length of elastic cord that you want and thread it through the holes on either side of the hat.
Step 4: Using a glue gun, attach one pom-pom to each hat. Voila!
Thank you, Kelli!
