If you are planning a Christmas party that will have children attending, then you can add to the party fun by making Christmas party hats for them. The process is not difficult and you may even want to have everyone show up an hour or so early so that the children can all be involved in making their own hats.
Things You'll Need
- Red construction paper
- Clear tape
- Green paint
- Craft glue
- Cotton balls
Wrap a piece of red construction paper into a cone and use clear tape to hold it in place.
Run a ring of glue around the base of the cone and stick cotton balls to the glue. Try to bunch the cotton balls together to make it look like one continuous piece of cotton.
Glue a single cotton ball to the tip of the cone.
Paint holly leaves and other designs on the hat with green paint and a paintbrush.
Make designs on the hat with glue. Sprinkle glitter over the glue to make the hat sparkle.
Tips & Warnings
- You can use other colors besides just green on the hat to make designs. You may also want to supply Christmas stickers for the children to use on their hats as well.
- You can use a hole punch and punch holes in the sides and knot ribbon or yarn through them to help the hats stay on.
