Carnival Party Hats

Tada! here are the party hats that i made for alex's carnival birthday. alex got the special ringmaster fabric hat while all the guests got the harlequin fabric hats. i made all the pom poms this summer while on vacation. the pom pom trim is from the fabric store and the fabric is from spoonflower - alex's party skirt was made from the same fabric. i started with some super cheap paper hats as my foundation and pattern. i took all the paper hats apart and threw away the flimsy elastic. next, with the paper hats opened flat i glued on the fabric and trimmed. i cut new pieces of elastic and stapled those onto the hats. i used a hot glue gun to form the hats back into a cone. and finally i hot glued all the pom poms and trim to the hats. i think they turned out fantastic and alex loved having the special hats for her party - she doesn't think it's a birthday party if there aren't hats!
