Birthday Hats!

A cute, simple way to make a family birthday party special, or, a fun decorating craft for kids to do at a birthday party.  I made these hats for my Daughter's 1st Birthday Party.  I really wasn't much of a party to be honest.  I must admit I feel kind of bad.  My first Daughter got a huge party in the backyard, with lots of friends and an entire "Yellow" theme.  Now THAT was a party to blog about.  My other daughter, well, she got cute hats.  Here's how to make them:

Party hats
12x12 craft paper - mixed designs
glue gun
colored feathers, pom poms, stickers, glitter, pipe cleaners, what ever! 

Get yourself some cheapo hats at the dollar store.  It doesn't matter what's on them.  In fact, I used Christmas hats.  Cover the hats with your choice of craft paper, hot glue them, and then trim the bottom.  You can make up a bunch of these  head of time for kids to decorate, if you are doing them as a craft for a party.  Just use white glue with the kids, not the hot glue gun (of course.) Then, just go at it with decorations!  I just used whatever I had already.  You can use what I did, or go to a craft store and go crazy!  So many fun things to put on hats!!!  Have fun!
