Crafting for my boys birthday party is in full force. I am actually feeling a little frantic about it all and am kicking myself for waiting till the last minute. Fortunately things are coming together quickly. Like these monster party hats! These were very simple and CHEAP! You can get a package of 8 party hats for $1.00 at the Dollar Tree. I had the rest of the materials at home (goggle eyes, colored paper, pom poms, and a hot glue gun). THIS was my inspiration.
First I deconstructed one of the hats to use as a template. I liked the bottom pattern so I cut that off of the deconstructed hat and then traced what was left on to different colored card stock.
Cut out your traced template, as well as 2″ white circles for the eyes. I used my Cricut to cut the circles, but you could use a punch or print out 2″ circles from your word processing program and cut those out.
Now start gluing everything together! Make sure you glue the seam of your colored card stock in the back. Glue the goggle eyes onto the circles and the circles on the hat.
Cut out different size spiked teeth from white scrap paper and glue those on for the mouth. Glue a pom pom on the top and you’ve got yourself an adorable monster party hat!
