Today is week two of a Monday mini series of my Sprinkle Birthday Party DIYs.

My big girl just celebrated her fourth birthday. I adore celebrating my babies on their birthdays and making them feel special.  However, birthday parties can quickly get out of control and you can spend hundreds of dollars on decor, favors, cake, activities, etc.  I went the DIY route this year and without spending much at all, I think this was one of my favorite kid’s parties to date!

We went with a Sprinkle Party theme and today I am sharing How to make simple Sprinkle Birthday Party Hats.

What supplies do I need to make Sprinkle Party Hats?

Watercolor set
Gold Garland
Thin Elastic
Hot glue


How to make Sprinkle Party Hats:

To make DIY Sprinkle Hats, start by painting simple watercolor patterns on sheets of paper.

Then, trace a circle about 7″ in diameter onto your paper.  

Next, divide the circle into three equal sections with a pencil and ruler.

Cut each section out from the circle with scissors and twist each section into a small hat shape.  Use a small dot of hot glue to secure together.

I made six miniature hats and they all were so adorable.

Then the birthday girl’s hat then got a small gold garland embellishment.  Start by measuring out the elastic length needed for comfortable hat wearing and secure to the hat with a staple.  I also added a bit of hot glue for extra holding power.
