Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Depending on the number of hats you are making, project time and supplies needed may increase.
  • 2
    Decide how many hats are needed. Download and print template onto Snowcap cardstock in the desired quantity. Cut out paper hat templates.
  • 3
    Take a paper hat and position it on Yellow felt. Make sure fold line on cardstock is facing up, then glue in place. Repeat, puzzling all the party hats on to your yellow felt to minimize waste, but making sure they are far enough away to cut out.
  • 4
    Using the cardstock paper hats as your guidelines, cut around the felt/cardstock hats.
  • 5
    Take a hat and place it on the table, cardstock facing up. Score the dotted line on the template and then fold the small flap.
  • 6
    Flip the hat over and glue along the flap on the yellow felt side.
  • 7
    Roll the felt/cardstock into a cone and press the glue the flap to the side where it meets.
  • 8
    Position and glue Red ribbon around the bottom edge. Repeat for remaining hats.
  • 9
    Find the seam on the hat and rotate it away from you. Mark with a pen, two dots on opposite sides of the hat, above the ribbon, to mark for holes for the ribbon ties. Punch holes on the marks and then thread ribbon through. Cut two small circles of Yellow felt. Position and glue over ribbon ends on the inside of the cone. Repeat for remaining hats.
  • 10
    Poke a Red pom pom into the top of the hat and glue in place.
  • 11
    Cut giraffes from Tangerine felt using template.
  • 12
    Cut 2 of each size circles from Yellow felt using template and glue to giraffe.
  • 13
    Glue Black beads to the giraffe for eyes.
  • 14
    Attach giraffes to hat. Glue a Red rhinestone to each of the Yellow circles (if desired).
