DIY Dinosaur Party Hats- tutorial

The other night we had a dinosaur party hat making party.

My nephew is turning 1 this weekend and his dinosaur-themed party just wouldn't be complete without dino party hats! We made them ourselves and they turned out SUPER cute.

Not pictured:
Start with a 12 x 12 piece of craft paper.
Trace a dinner plate (about 11 inches) and cut out the circles.
Cut spikes out of additional paper; appx 4 inches long.

Now for the pictures:

Cut the circles in half.

Curl the half-circles into cones.

Glue the dino spines onto the edge of the hat with hot glue.

Glue the edges down.

Trim the stuff that's hanging off.

Punch holes in the sides & tie on elastic.

Stick a label on the front.

Put one on and get ready to party!

Ha! I made party hats this exact same way, minus the dinosaur part, at basically the exact same time. I had a student with a birthday on March 4th who still wanted to meet for tutoring that day but asked that we have cake and party hats, lol.
