How to Make a Party Hat - including the free template!

Kids love party hats! They can turn the most simple events into full on parties!

Making your own is quick and fun.

First, download template and print on cardstock.

Cut out the hat.

Fold into a cone shape. To make the cone shape, I’ve found that running the hat shape over the edge of a counter gets the curling process started and makes it easier to make a cone.

Then glue the tab into the hat. I like hot glue because it dries fast.

And finally glue ribbon or elastic on each side (inside the hat).
