I recently went through my craft stash and did a MASSIVE clean…I got rid of yarn I don’t use, supplies I never use, paper I’ve never used…and sitting at the bottom of one of my craft containers was a stash of scrap paper.
Saved from various paper projects, this collection of scrap paper had a whole mess of paper in it. In an effort to really make a dent in my craft stuff, I set it aside to be recycled…
But…then I got an idea!
Also in my collection of stuff to bring to work and put on the free table was a bag of small pom poms. I have no idea why I had these or where they came from, but I grabbed them and my paper stash and got to work making some little party hats.
Needless to say, this was a great way to use up my paper scraps and now I have a fun little garland to hang up during birthday celebrations!
I found a template for a mini hat at the This Heart of Mine blog (link below) that made super cute hats about 1 in. high. She also includes a pattern for human-sized hats if you want to get crafty for a party!
A fun garland to hang on the wall or use to wrap a gift, this birthday hat garland is fast, easy, and oh so adorable!
