We're going to make party hats. This very fun party hat is made out of only three pieces of construction paper. This is the smaller paper. The first thing you want to do is take the smaller paper and just wrap it around your head until it fits and tape or staple it. Nothing to it really. Once you have your hat secured, you might want to take a special pair of scissors with the fancy edges and cut around the edge so that you have an edge that looks like this. And you know if you don't have the fancy scissors to do this kind of an edge you can always just tear the paper and that too will give you a fancy edge. Now one thing that you can do too before you even cut out your hat, before you staple it, is to leave it open and decorate it. You might want to write Happy Birthday in crayon or use markers or even use glitter and glue. Once you’ve done that, you put your hat together and then you want to make this. This is the fun stuff and it's so easy to make. Cut out a variety of sizes and colors of circles and then just start cutting out your circle. You want to stay fairly close to the edge, but it does not have to be even. That's the beauty of it. And you just keep cutting until you've keep spiraling around and you have it looking like this. Then you take the center and stretch it. As you can see I used several pieces of yellow and several pieces of purple. I started out with a large circle with the purple and this was a small circle with the yellow. Put them all together, staple them at the top, shook them out and here we go. A really fun, crazy Happy Birthday hat. It would work for New Year's too.
