I love hats but never seem to find the right occasion to wear them. Except on Easter. Growing up, it was a family tradition to buy a new dress and hat each spring to wear proudly on Easter. Now I get to instill the love of Easter finery in my own children. So while we're shopping for new bonnets, we'll also be dressing up Easter eggs in their own personalized party hats.
- Small cupcake liners in assorted colors
- Construction paper
- Black marker
1. Make a Cone
Use a cup to trace a semi-circle on construction paper. Use the edge of the paper to create your semi-circle.
Cut out the shape.
Twist it into a cone shape and secure with tape.
2. Add Cupcake Liners
Cut out the rim of a mini cupcake liner.
Attach it to the inside of the cone and secure with tape.
3. Decorate Hats
Now that you know how to make the basic party hat for an egg, you can go wild with variations! Add stripes, polka dots or even a feather. Bonus points for making the entire hat with layers of different cupcake liners.
4. Draw Faces
Use a black marker to give your eggs a face to match their hat.
