Let's get started
new year hats_ how to

  1. Trace on your cardstock a hat shape about 10.5 inches in length. At the point of your hat, make a cut in a u form this will allow room to insert your decoration glitter sticks later. Need a template try this one by they are a bit shorter and smaller too but they can work for sure!
  2. Glue your hat. It is totally ok to overlap the flaps be sure to leave space for your decor at the top when glueing together.
  3. Make 2 holes, one on each end of your hat. Insert your fasteners and poke thru a piece of ribbon. Ribbon should measure approximately 12-14 inches long. Ensure to make it long enough to tie hat on.
  4. Use 1 or 2 glitter sticks fold in half or thirds and tape at the bottom add a small piece of string and insert thru hole you left up at the top of your hat. Secure the ribbon in your hat with some glue or tape.
  5. Decorate your hat. Add shapes or words or cut our the new year in glitter paper! Glue on to your hat or use the sticker maker to add adhesive to all your decor.
Now try them on and make sure they fit well.
