Felt Party Hat

For my little one's birthday party I knew I wanted to make her a felt party hat.

I wasn't sure HOW to make one, but knew I wanted one.

I have a ton of wool felt on hand so I just got to work!

I wish I had taken pictures of the process, but in all honesty I wasn't sure how it would turn out, so I didn't bother taking pictures!

Basically all I did was go to the Dollar Store and buy some paper party hats. Then I traced it onto the felt and cut that out. I ended up just using hot glue to close it and it worked perfect! I used two layers of felt to make it more sturdy and then added embellishments! I added all the embellishments before I glued it in the hat form, it made it a little easier.






I have to say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out!!!!







This is a little blurry, but its the only one I have.  I just cut the one out and then hand stitched it onto the hat








The flowers





The back





The swirly things are actually stickers and I just used some hot glue to attach them







After I had the hat complete, I attached it to some white Fold Over Elastic I had on hand to make it into a head band for her.

And here it is on my adorable birthday-girl-to-be







The hubster said she looks like she could be a Vegas show girl, but I think he is nuts! She looks so cute!!!

It did take me awhile to figure out how to piece it all together, and I almost scratched the whole thing and bought one off Etsy, but I am SO glad I stuck with it and figured it out! Hopefully she will keep it on during her party!
