There I go again, jumping ahead to New Year’s Eve! These party hats are totally worth it though. NYE is the perfect excuse to get your fancy on and I pretty sure guests will be jazzed to add one of these to their sparkly outfits. I mean, they’re gold and they have a poof? Maybe I’ll just wear one every day until New Years! Let’s do this.
Paper Mache Cone
Gold Spray Paint
Black Tissue Paper
Black Fringe Trim
Gold Filler Balls or Other Trimming (Optional)
Spray paint your paper mache cone gold and let dry. Meanwhile, cut your tissue paper into five inch squares. You’ll need two for each party hat. Grab one square in the middle and pinch it, then twist so it keeps its shape slightly. Repeat with a second square.
Hold your two squares together at the twisted bases and wrap black tape around them to secure.
Hot glue your tissue poof to your paper mache cone. Add some fringe trim around the bottom of the cone, covering the base of your poof you just added.
Cut out two circles from your cardstock the width of your cone’s base. Hot glue one to the base of the hat. Now sandwich your headband in between the cone and the other cardstock circle and secure with hot glue.
Add some fun gold fillers or beads if you’d like, or leave it plain. As you can see, I did both!
