We are so excited to share a super festive (and super simple to do) New Year’s Eve DIY today! Miss Amy of Homey Oh My is here to show us how to make the most festive and most adorable party hats ever!
New Year’s Eve is a day to celebrate the year that has passed, ring in the year that’s to come, and wear fun and sparkly things on our heads. It’s not an NYE party without party hats, right? So make these cute and simple sequin ball mini party hats for you and your friends to wear this New Year’s Eve as you watch the ball drop and count down to 2015!
-styrofoam balls (1.5″ diameter)
Step 1: Glue on a sequin to a styrofoam ball using the Tacky Glue.
Step 2: Apply Tacky Glue around the sequin.
Step 3: Apply sequins on top of the glue.
Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 until the ball is covered in sequins, leaving one small spot uncovered (this will be the attachment point to the hat)
Step 5: Open up the party hat and cut off about two inches from the bottom, following along the curve of the bottom edge. This step turns the party hat into a mini hat, so if you want to keep your hat the regular size, you can skip this step!
Step 6: After cutting off two inches, fold the party hat back together, using tape if necessary to hold the hat together. Save the string to reattach later!
Step 7: Push the ball on top of the hat so that it pierces the ball where there were no sequins applied.
Step 8: Fill the indent on the ball with hot glue and attach the ball back onto the hat while the glue is still hot.
Step 9: Tape the party hat string back onto the inside of the hat.
