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.
You can really dress these up too. I've made these with black headbands and silver numbers using heavier cardstock, and they actually look quite sophisticated! Or you can try using patterned scrapbook papers for a nice look without having to add embellishments.

this template out on colored card stock.
2. Decorate the 2017, 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 2016 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 below).
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 2017 can then be stapled or glued to
the band. Have fun!
