Nothing says girlie party fun like a large tulle poof, doted with rhinestones. A birthday hat that your best friend, mom, or daughter will not soon forget. Make them for guests of honor, or craft a couple to wear on those long summer days when a little something special is what you really need.

To make the tulle poof party hats, start with a 6 inch roll of colorful tulle (available at most craft stores). Wrap the tulle around a large flat surface – a legal notepad works great. After wrapping, remove from the surface and tie off the center of the tulle poof. Attach a small barrette to the back of the tie once cut and finished. Lastly, use hot glue to secure the rhinestones sporadically around the poof.
