What is it about all things mini? Take regular old salt and pepper shakers for instance, make them itty bitty, and suddenly their the cutest things you’ve ever seen! The same goes for party hats, mini party hats are so fun! They’re like a subtle way of saying “hey…it’s a party!” Since they’re not easy to find at the party store, why not make your own!
The best part is that you probably have everything in your party supply box to make them right now. Last month when we had the Pigeon Party, we had the cutest polka dot paper plates which worked perfect for these mini party hats. To start here’s what you need:
-cute paper plates
-coordinating party streamers
Moving onto the fun part…the fringe! I love using my Martha Stewart fringe scissors for this, but any old scissors will work great. Just snip little notches on both sides of a one foot section of streamer.
Or you can make your hats like the regular party hats with the stretchy clear plastic string using a jewelry crimp tube to hold the stretchy string in place. This is my preferred method, but the white string option above is easier if you don’t have the jewelry tools. You could also add these little hats onto a skinny headband. Just hot glue them right on!
