Party Hat Templates


birthday giftIf you enjoy DIY (Do-It-Yourself) projects, and you have a birthday coming up, why not create your own birthday party hats? I’ve made four different birthday party hat templates to help you easily create your craft. All you need is some sturdy paper, a printer, scissors, string, a stapler, and a bit of tape.

First and foremost, if you print the entire hat onto one letter-sized sheet, it will be too small for a human. Therefore, you may have to fit the image onto 2 letter-sized sheets. If, however, you’re making a hat for a 24 lb dog, the letter-sized template will be perfect. (See image on right.)

If you’ve printed the party hat onto thick paper, there’s no need to add any backing. If you’re using standard printer paper, the hat will be too flimsy, so you’ll want to glue the sheet onto some thin cardboard. Cereal box cardboard is perfect for this.

Cut out the template and curve it into a cone. Add a staple to the bottom where the 2 sides overlap. Then add tape along the overlapping area.

Cut some string, long enough for the wearer of the hat. Then staple the string to the hat. If you’re happy with the result, pat yourself on the back, and make more for the rest of your guests.
