My daughter thinks a hat should be worn for every occasion, so the request for a Christmas hat was no surprise. You may find it hard to believe they don't really make Christmas hats. What's a crafter to do? We transformed a party hat into a Christmas tree with some green tissue paper, glue, and sequins. It came out darling and now...we are imagining the endless possibilities to party hats.

How We Did It

You can use Mod-Podge or just watered-down glue for this project. Our mixture was 1/4 water and 3/4 glue.

First, cover your hat with the tissue squares and glue mixture. You may need several layers depending on the party hat color.

Once the hat is completely covered in green, it is time for tree trimming. We used ribbon and sequins for this. Glitter glue would be perfect too.

My five-year-old thought it was so fun to decorate a mini tree just as she would a real Christmas tree. Wrapping the garland (ribbon) around was a big hit.

Now for the ornaments! Look how sweetly it is coming together!

And here is my daughter, all decked out for Christmas. I have to admit that I was not expecting this to come out so cute. Now I am thinking of the fun personalized birthday party touches we can create with plain ol' party hats!
