Edit: I am making 16 of these for Lu's preschool class. I will make the hats & spray paint them black at home. I will provide the collage materials for the kids so they can decorate their own in class. So far I found some glitter glue in the Target $1 zone (4 tubes for $1), I order a ton of googly eyes and gems from Oriental Trading Company on the cheap. I think I'll pick up some Halloween curling ribbon and pre-tie bundles of curls for them to attach. I'll post pictures afterwards.
I can't help it...I know it is still September. I just love Halloween.
We still had a bunch of Elmo Birthday Party hats sitting on the "I'll deal with it later pile." Lucky for me I am a procrastinator. I picked up the hat and thought up this fun little craft.
Take a small paper plate. Make pie shaped cuts in the center circle. Fold up. Tape or glue to inside of hat. Paint or spray paint black. Decorate. Lulu and I both had fun decorating ours. We used googly eyes, sequin stars, glitter and ribbon.
When dry you can tie ribbon around the hat or even better glue feather boa around the brim!
