I have a bit of a crafting obsession (clearly), and often find myself buying completely unnecessary craft supplies, because I have a feeling that at some point in time, I will use them. This happens to be the case for both the headbands, and the mache cones.
I knew that someday I would find the perfect use for both of those cute little craft supplies, but didn't think to put the two together until I was dreaming up DIY New Year's Eve party ideas! It was one of those little lightbulb moments - stick that cone on the headband.
I had some extra wired tinsel ribbon left over from a few Christmases ago, which worked perfectly for the gold party hat. I also used some gold ribbon and tied little tiny knots to make the pink hat. I didn't get a good photo of the white one - but I glued a faux flower to the top of it - and it turned out SO cute!
My girlfriends and I will definitely be wearing these this New Years! What are your plans? I'd love to hear about them!
DIY Party Hat
Step 1: Paint the cones with a few coats of acrylic paint! Let dry.
Step 2: Use hot glue to decorate your party hats! Try using left over tinsel from Christmas, glitter, and faux flowers!
Step 3: Use some hot glue to secure the cone to the base of the metal headband.
