Directions to make a NYE Party Hat
Making these was a cinch and definitely a kid-friendly craft, just be sure to use supervision with the hot glue gun. 😉 To get started you’ll need to cover up those bright birthday party graphics on the party hats.
I painted 2 coats of metallic paint over 2 of them, one in black and one in silver.
I cut some fabric in a classic chevron pattern, decked out in black & silver, to fit the party hat shape then hot glued it on. I trimmed the excess fabric then glued it together.
Cute! I love the texture of the fabric against the metallic hats.
From there I printed and cut my clock faces. You can write “Hello 2019” or “Happy New Year” or draw clock hands or whatever you want to do– I left them blank for you to personalize. 😉
Hot glue the tinsel in a circle then glue a clock to the front of it; lastly, hot glue it to the party hat.
I used the streamer as a hat topper and just bunched it together like a ruffle then glued it in place. I love the ribbon that has a bit of sparkle to it so I bunched the patterned one as a topper then used the silver ribbon one to back a clock by adding strips behind it. Easy peasy. You can mix and match styles and textures of the fabric, ribbon and paint to create some fun and super easy party hats, perfect for NYE!
I kind of want to paint everything this pretty metallic silver hue as it’s the perfect shade of gray with a bit of shine!
Loving all of the classic blacks, whites, and silvers in the products with the gold tinsel. I can hardly wait to chill our kid-friendly bubbly (Martinelli’s) and watch the ball drop!
Happy New Year!
