For Emma and Ella’s Turning One party I knew I had to get, or at least try to get a shot of them wearing a party hat. I decided to make them using supplies I already had on hand.

By cutting the bottom base of a paper cup, and then turning the hard card into conical shape, one just needed to staple the side and your hat is half way there. I then used some paper streamers folded and then rolled into a little tube, stuck the bottom half with tape and then cut the fringe. This was then pushed through the top of the hat. Last but not least I pierced a hole on either side of the bottom of teh hat and thread through some gold string. The hard part was trying to get a shot of Emma trying it on. All she wanted to do was eat the top fringe!
