Do you have about 10 minutes to whip up something festive for New Year’s Eve tomorrow? Today’s projects take just about that long.
Friend and fellow blogger Stefanie over at Girl. Inspired. shared these super cute DIY party hats with tinsel trim last year and I was a girl inspired! ;)
Stefanie has a free printable template to make a party hat. I went the quick and dirty route and just rolled up some kraft paper until it made a hat shape, then glued it in place before trimming off the rest. It made for some irregular shaped hats, :) so if consistency is your thing, definitely head over to Stefanie’s and print up a template first. She even designed it so you don’t have to glue the hat together!
The rest was super simple. I cut 2-3 inch pieces of tinsel garland, added a glob of hot glue to the top of each hat, and then kind of pinched the tinsel on top of the glue, while poofing and squishing it into a tinsel pom shape. Really hi-tech here people…. ;)
Glued it all together….
I felt more tinsel poms were in order (never enough tinsel poms!), so I made some tinsel pom drink stirrers like these ones from Martha Stewart.
I applied the same gluing and smooshing technique as I did with the hats. These came together super fast and super cute!
Happy New Year!
