I promise I'm almost done with birthday posts. I'm sorting through a billion photos so I can present the par-tay all at once. But, before I do that, let me share one more tutorial: the birthday hat.
And here's how I did it:
Supplies: You'll need some cheap birthday hats, the fabric you want to cover your hat with, scissors, glue, and yarn. You'll also need (not pictured) tape, a pencil, and any other decorations to finish it off (in my case, a little ric-rac).
Step 1: Disassemble one of the birthday hats to make a pattern.
Step 9: Add any other decorations you want: I glued on some ric-rac for this hat, but lace could be super cute on a girl's hat. Go wild!
Step 10: Find a model who may or may not be convinced that he should wear the hat you're putting on his head.
P.S. Before anyone goes thinking I'm a terrible mom who disregards safety to try to take pictures of her kid on the kitchen counter, you should know that my mom was standing right there next to him. Safety first.
