DIY paper party hat with a free printable template


Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday!  Aly here (I get to see you each Tuesday and Thursday–lucky me!) to share an easy DIY paper party hat with a free printable template.  I actually made this hat for my daughter to wear on Crazy Hat Day at school during Red Ribbon Week. But you can use this template and tutorial to create your own custom hat for any type of celebration.

Step 1: Download the printable party hat template HERE, cut it out, and trace it onto your patterned paper.  Cut out the party hat, form a cone shape, and hot glue the edges together to secure.
Step 2: Cut several 3 x ¼ inch strips of Feelin’ Groovy patterned paper using the Twist Trimmer.  Use a rubber band to secure them together at the bottom.  Insert the ends into the top of the hat so that the rubber band is covered and secure with hot glue.  Gently bend the strips down and fan them out.
Step 3: Add some border strips cut with the Twist Trimmer, a Feelin’ Groovy embossed tag tied with baker’s twine, and some embossed Feelin’ Groovy stickers.  Secure them with hot glue.
Step 4: Add eyelets to the bottom sides of the hat and tie some baker’s twine to hold the hat in place on the birthday child.
