You can custom make your own New Year's Eve party hats with a few simple supplies and some basic hats from the dollar store. I found several different varieties for altering. Happy New Year!
FolkArt paint – silver anniversary 506
FolkArt Extreme Glitter – silver
Mod Podge matte
Dollar store party hats - cardboard
Feathers and feather trim
1. Begin with dollar store party hats. Disassemble the hats.
2. To make a glitter hat, paint the hat with the silver anniversary paint. Next, topcoat with three layers of silver extreme glitter. Once dry reassemble the hat.
3. To make a Mop Podge hat, trace the hat shape onto the back of a piece of scrapbook paper. Trim the paper. Apply mod podge to the back of the paper and position onto the cardboard hat. Use you fingers to press out any air bubbles. Apply Mod Podge to the front of the paper if desired.
4. Decorate: Using hot glue, add feather trims, decorative trims and loose feathers to the hats. Add chipboard shapes or rhinestones letters to the hats. Hot glue silk flowers to the hats.
