I love a good party hat and these giant flower hats are so fun. They are simple to make and you can get all the supplies to make them
Step 1: Cut out 2 pieces of crepe paper. Crumple one of the crepe paper pieces into a ball. Then cover it with the second piece of paper. Twist the bottom so that it forms a large stamen. Circle the top of the stamen with wire so it holds the crumpled paper in place.
Step 2: Cut out 10 or more large petal shapes out of crepe paper.
Step 3: Gently use your thumbs to pull and shape the crepe paper.
Step 4: Begin place the petals around the ball base of the flower. Once you’re satisfied with the look of the flower, wrap a piece of wire around the petals to secure them in place.
Step 5: Use this party hat template to make your hat, then use an x-acto knife to cut out an “x” in the hat.
Step 6: Slip the base of through the x in the hat.
Step 7: Glue the base of the flower in place on the inside of the hat.
Step 8: Party!
