Trimmed party hats

If you’ve been around for awhile you will know that I am a big fan of party hats (see here). A good party hat can take even the most unexcited guest and put them in a party state of mind. Adding a bit fabric and trim to plain Jane paper party hats and you’ve got a serious dose of vibrant fun just waiting to be adorned.

These trimmed party hats are ready to liven up any celebration imaginable and will be adorable set out in various fabrics and colors at your next birthday party. I can imagine them set out in mass on a table – setting the stage for the entire party! Hats can be incredibly transformative in that way.

How to trim a party hat

  2. Using a hot glue gun, secure the fabric on the inside of the party hat.
  3. Line the bottom of the party hat with ric rac and secure with hot glue.
  4. Make a simple tassel from 2 embroidery threads and either secure to the top of the party hat with hot glue or thread through the top of the hat.

The cutest tattoo ever!

I am not a fan of tattoos. I mean on other people, I am all, “ohhh, that’s so cool”. But the basic concept of paying someone to inflict pain on me is one I find uncomfortable. Also, there’s never been a tattoo that I’ve thought – I want that on me. FOREVER. This one though. […]
