Today, we will check out festive DIY party hats that you can make before that huge shindig to welcome 2013.

Let's get crafting!

1. Circles


I love these two-toned DIY party hats.

This is a clever tutorial brought to us by Martha Stewart.2

To make these, you will need decorative paper, vellum, double-sided tape, pencil, round plates as template, white glue, and ribbon.

You can skip the vellum if you use pretty card stock.

2. Ruffled


These are incredibly pretty, too.

And oh-so-easy to make!

If you have lots of fabric scraps, you can use them for making the ruffled hems of these DIY party hats.

Instead of using patterned card stock, you can also use glittery paper.

3. Peter Pan

This is a cute idea, especially if the New Year's Eve party that you're planning is Rated PG.

Check out the tutorial on how to make the hat and the feather embellishment.

The latter is adorable and I think I will copy it to make other fun craft projects.

4. Mini Hats

These are tiny DIY party hats that you can make for your upcoming soiree.

To make these, you simply cut a store-bought party hat into a smaller accessory, attach it to a headband, and embellish as you like.2

The shinier, the better.
