Such a fun blog post today!!  I’m back with another Pom Pom Birthday Party craft and I am so excited to share this one with you guys.  

Last weekend, we celebrated my daughter’s 5th birthday and this was the first year she was allowed to invite friends over.  We had so much fun!  

Let’s get into how you can make these fun Color Your Own Party Hats.

I loved this fun craft for my daughter’s party because it was a perfect calming ice breaker for all the little girls.  As they arrived we greeted them and had them pick out from the two choices, which hat design they wanted.  

Then, they busily chatted and colored.

How to craft a Party Hat

Once you have your party hat page colored, it’s time to craft and make it into a hat!

Cut out your hat shape and use a small utility knife to slice the side tabs for assembling your hat.

You can read on my Learn to make a cozy Pom Pom Throw Blanket post how to make a large pom pom.

You can either tape or hot glue the pom poms to your hat at this point.  For my hat on this post, I taped the string to the inside – but for the party, I hot glued the pom poms for a strong adhesion and to speed up the process of six little girls eagerly awaiting their hats.

After your pom pom is attached, you fold the tabs into one another to form a cone.  I found regular scotch tape worked best to keeping it all together!

Adding string to a party hat

There are numerous materials you can use to create the hat string. You can use ribbon (which I used below), yarn or even elastic.

I measured approximately 8″ for each side of the hat and then cut the ribbon to size. Once the ribbon was cut, I used a stapler to secure the ribbon to either side of the hat.

Crafty Party Hats

It was so neat to see everyone coloring and crafting and having such fun!  And I’m totally inspired to do a little kid’s craft party now.

My daughter thinks a party isn’t a party without a party hat, so she loved how they turned out.
