Blog Swap with Lil Luna

Hi there Naptime Crafters Readers!
My name is Kristyn, and I blog over at
Lil’ Luna.
Come on over and check it out for fun and easy crafts, tutorials and recipes!

Today, I will be showing you how to make some fun and unique HALLOWEEN PARTY HATS!

SUPPLIES:
-Plain Party Hats
-Vinyl Dots or Scrapbook Paper Dots
-Hot Glue
-Scrapbook Paper
-Crepe Paper
-Sewing Machine
-Chipboard
-Glitter
-Mod Podge
INSTRUCTIONS:
1. I used my vinyl machine to cut out 1 inch circles of different colors. If you don’t have a vinyl machine – no worries! Just cut out (or punch out) circles of scrapbook paper to glue on.
2. Add dots to hats in a random pattern. Set hats aside.
3. Grab 2 crepe paper rolls. Put pieces together, back stitch the first inch or so and then sew along the middle. Each hat required about 4 feet of SEWN crepe paper.
4. Grab the unstitched piece of string at the end of the crepe paper and slowly pull, scrunching crepe paper as you go and pulling it towards the end that you started sewing at. You will continue to do this until all the crepe paper is gathered.
5. Once crepe paper is gathered, you can cut into the crepe paper making sure you don’t hit the stitch so you can make it look more frayed. Take this piece and hot glue around the base of the party hat.
6. With your leftover crepe paper, hot glue around the top of the party hat.
7. Now you will make the piece that goes onto the hat. To do that you will need to cut TWO 12 inch long and 1.5 inch wide strips of scrapbook paper. You will fold the paper back and forth until you come to the end of the piece. You will then hot glue the ends together as well as the other ends so that it makes a zig-zag circle.
8. Then you will push the edges of the circle in so that it forms an accordion flower. Hot Glue the center and hold. Do the same for the back side of the flower.

9. Now you will need to trace out the picture you want to put on your flower (or cardstock).
I used these printables found on Matthew Mead’s website.
10. Hot glue your accordion flower to the front of your hat. Also hot glue your picture to the middle of the flower.
Voila! CUTE & EASY Halloween Hats!
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and please feel free to come on over to
