Ice Cream Party Hat DIY

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Hello! First things first, my friend Sunny's interviewed me about cartoon characters and Happy Meal toys on her blog Crazy Bat Lady - please take a look!

Meanwhile, I made this ice cream themed party hat for an upcoming outfit post a week or so ago, and thought I might as well share a little DIY post showing how I made it!

You Will Need:
- Ribbon (I got this from Joann Fabrics for a dollar!)
- 12 x 12 Cone-Colored Paper
- Glue
- Scissors
- Needle & Thread
- Pink Crepe Streamers (got two at the dollar store!)

1. Roll your paper into a cone shape and glue to help it keep it's shape. Cut excess paper.

2. I wanted this to be extra cutesy, so I made it so you can tie a bow under the chin to stay on! To do so, cut a small hole near the bottom and tie a string of ribbon. Repeat this step on the other side.

3. Ruffle the crepe streamer using a straight gathering stitch.

4. Glue ruffle onto the bottom of the party hat, covering where we tied the ribbon earlier.

5. Use a marker to draw a diamond pattern onto the cone so it looks like a waffle cone and you're done!

You also add a pom pom to the top to make it look extra cute (if a little bit less ice cream ish)!

Please let me know if you make any, I want to see! And if you have any questions, feel free to leave it in the comments, tweet me, or send an email!
