This New Year's eve party hat
is so fun
to make, and your children will have lots of fun decorating it! They
are quick and easy to do, and each hat will look very different
depending on its color and how it is decorated. If you are hosting a
New Year's Eve Party, these are easy to make for your guests instead of
buying the same old looking hats. Happy 2014!

to open up an Adobe
Reader template for the 2014 numbers. A new window will pop up. Print
this template out on colored card stock.
2. Decorate the 2014, in any way you chose. You can use markers,
paints, stickers, crayons, glitter, sequins, the list goes on and on.
Glittery things look great and make the hat for festive and appropriate
for a New Year's party. Here I used glitter glue, and acrylic flat
sided jewel beads which I had left over from another project.
3. Allow the 2014 to dry and then cut it out with scissors. Leave the
numbers together by not cutting the bottom of each letter out. Instead,
leave about an inch of card stock to connect all the numbers (see photo
4. Take another piece of card stock, and cut a one inch 11 inch strip
from the long edge of it. Then, cut another 11 inch strip. Staple the
two strips together as shown. This will be the head band.
Measure your child's head, and then staple the band together in a
circle to match the diameter. The 2014 can then be stapled or glued to
the band. Have fun!
