Remember this cute cake face??? Isn't it topped by a cute little birthday hat??? Well, hey here is a recipe for a cute birthday hat.
Stiff felt sheets
coordinating regular felt in 2-4 colors
hot glue/glue gun
Cut out template. Use as a pattern. Trace out on your pieces of felt.
Roll into cone shape. Roll tight enough that there isn't a gap unlike in my picture below...oops! Apply hot glue to the tab and then glue hat closed. Hold firmly rolled until glue is dried.
Repeat until you have enough party hats.
Cut out some dots. I did small and big dots. Do whatever floats your boat.
Hot glue dots on in a random pattern.
Pom-Pom time. I KNOW there has to be a better way to do this, but hey this works too. Wrap the yarn around two fingers, slightly spaced a part, making sure to hold on to the loose end.
Keep wrapping, and then keep wrapping some more. The thicker you wrap, the thicker the pom-pom.
After it is thick enough, cut other end. Feed that end through your two fingers, still holding on to the original loose end. You should have two loose ends.
Wind the cut end around your "ball" of yarn and through your fingers again. Pulling tightly. Take your original loose end and prepare to tie a knot with the cut end.
Wiggle the yarn off your fingers. Tie the two ends together in a tight knot.
Cut through the loops on either side of your knot, making sure NOT (haha not-knot just got that) to cut the ends that are tied in a knot.
When you are all done, fluff out your pom-pom. You also might have to trim it up to make it uniform in size.
Attach to the tip of your hat with a glue gun.
Once the glue has dried. Punch holes at the bottom on either side. Tie on two pieces of yarn for the ties.
Now you have the cutest little birthday hat, to go on the cutest little head...you kind of want one for your next birthday too, huh???
