Homemade Party Hats
You don’t have to hit a big box store for party hats. With this simple template, you can turn whatever reclaimed paper and cardboard you have handy into sweet party hats for your guests. To make these hats even more special, try painting or collaging on them to add a little oomph. Your guests will love your custom hats – they have so much more character than ones you can buy at the store!
Bonus Project: Simple Noisemakers
If you have some of those black eyed peas left over from filling your votive holders, you can turn them into sweet little noisemakers for your guests! Just cut a paper towel roll into 3 equal pieces and paint or collage on the tubes to decorate. When the tubes are dry, fill them up with black eyed peas, use rubber bands to secure fabric tightly over the ends, and get ready to shake in the new year!
Are you guys whipping up any DIY New Year’s decorations? I’d love to hear more ideas in the comments!
