Are you hosting New Year’s Eve extravaganza? Create your own party hats using super glue. This is a great way to add a personal touch to your evening. Follow these simple step-by-step instructions on how to add your sparkly touch for your New Year’s Eve bash.

What You Will Need:

– Card Stock

– Super Glue

– Tinsel

– Elastic Cord

– Glitter (optional)

Step 1: Trace and Cut

Print out a template, here’s one from MarthaStewart.com, trace the template onto your cardstock and cut it out. Using different color and or pattern designed cardstock is a great way to add more of a personal touch.

Step 2: Shape it!

Gently fold your cardstock into a cone and insert the tab into the slit, and add in a few drops of Super Glue to make sure it holds in place.

Step 3: Secure it with Super Glue

Now that you have your cone, it’s time to add your decorations to it. Using Super Glue, add a thin line to the bottom rim and place your tinsel around the base. You can also cut a small portion of tinsel and a drop of glue and place it at the top of your hat.

Step 4: Add Elastic

In order to make sure your guests are able to keep their hats on, cut an elastic cord (18 inches) and Super Glue it to the inside of the hat. Using super adhesives will add in a strong hold and make sure it doesn’t come off anyone’s hat throughout the night.

Step 5: Get Creative!

Now that your hat has the essentials, you can customize each hat however you like. Try adding 2015 to some hats, Happy New Year’s to others, or simply sprinkle on glitter. Be creative and have fun.
