Kate's Take: Happy New Year and DIY Party Hat

Merry xmas eve! 2014 is almost over and I'm celebrating the passage of another year with a DIY Party Hat Crown which I was originally making for a blog post but decided to also film as part of this week's Kate's Take episode. This past week I also shot a totally wild video with P'trique of Sh*t Fashion Girls Say fame, I got to dress in 80's workout clothes AND a giant showgirl feather headdress - watch the video here.

Thank you so much for all your support this last year. Mr. Kate as a business has grown leaps and bounds because of all of you who enjoy our content and buy our jewelry and BeautyMarks. I feel so lucky and filled with appreciation for each and every one of you. Thank YOU for making 2014 a great one!

I hope you all get to make this crown or check out 'DIY Lace Crown' for another fun and easy party crown project.

DO IT!:

  1. Twist two or three pipe cleaners together to form a circle that fits around your head. Use a few more pipe cleaners wrapped around to reinforce the strength of your base circle.
  2. Dump and dollop of Mod Podge or white craft glue and a pile of glitter onto the wax paper.
  3. Roll the cotton balls around in the Mod Podge until they are fully covered and then roll them around in the glitter to fully disco-ball-ify them. Let dry for about an hour or so until the glitter feels hard and secure.
  4. Connect more pipe cleaners perpendicularly to the circle you've already created by twisting them into place. Then connect the other ends all together to form a pointed top over the round base. Use a spare pipe cleaner to secure all the loose ends together at the point of the hat/crown.
  5. Hot glue the glitter cotton balls to the top of your hat, you could use 1 or 3 like I did and now you're ready to party and get that New Year's kiss! Muah!
