What You Will Need1. Hat template (I based mine on this one from Almost Makes Perfect)
2. Scissors and pencil
3. Double sided tape or glue gun
4. Decorations - I used tinsel
5. String or elastic
Step 1. Create The Template
Due to my printer being out of ink, I was unable to print Almost Makes Perfect's template so I went old school and sketched it out by hand with the help of a pencil and 20cm plate. Using a plate this size created a beautiful kid's sized hat / mini hat for any fun loving adult.
Step 2. Make Your Cone
When using elastic, measure out enough for it to sit comfortably round your chin. Personally I'm not a great fan of elastic so I opted for a tie up string option. When using string you will need to cut two equal lengths which will allow you to tie under your chin once attached to the inside of your cone, I cut 2 x 40cm lengths of string.
Step 3. Add The String
Once you have either your elastic or string you will need to attach them to the inside of the cone using sellotape. I recommend making sure the fold of the cone will face backwards when the hat is on your head.
Step 4. Decorate - YAY
Whatever you do, make sure you tag me on Twitter or Instagram, I'd love to see your creations.
I hope you all have a lovely New Year's Eve, whether it be sat at home drinking left over mulled wine or at a party dancing your pants off (whilst wearing your rather fetching new party hat)!
