Make Your Own Party Hat

Make Your Own Party Hat


It’s been a while since I’ve done a DIY post. I missed doing this type of post as I really enjoy sharing my tips on the little things that makes a big difference.

Anyhow, in 2016 – when it was #WorldBookDay the school requested us to do a book hat for the day, so I made a pointed party hat for Ethan. Based on the book – Harry and the Dinosaurs have a Happy Birthday by Ian Whybrow, Illustrator Adrian Reynolds.

His pointed hat was made from his plastic dinosaur party table cloth – left over from his birthday party and a piece of cardboard. It was so simple. It took me less than 5 minutes to do.

    What a lovely idea. We have made them with cereal boxes and painted them but I’d not thought to use a plastic table cloth as the cover, this is a great way to keep it in theme for world book day.

    Thank you for sharing a wonderful and easy idea on #Trash2Treasure

      I think if we had more time we would have done the same, but actually this is far less messy! lol! Thank you for hosting. x
