For Pete’s birthday, I bought him two bottles of wine. I didn’t want to just give him the wine, though. I could have, I guess, but that’s not me. So, instead, I made DIY Birthday Hats for wine.
It was sort of a ridiculous thing to do, but they came out adorably. Like I seriously couldn’t have been more in love with them. And Pete really appreciated them too, which was great.
DIY Birthday Hats (for wine!)
What You’ll Need:
- Teal card stock
- White card stock
- Blue card stock
- Single hole punch
- Mason jar lid
What You’ll Do:
Use the mason jar lid to trace a circle on to your teal card stock (or whatever color you want to be the main portion of the hat).
Cut out one-quarter of the teal card stock. These will make them the perfect size to fit your wine bottles. You can cut off more, leaving about a quarter and a half of the circle, and it will make a longer, narrower hat. I didn’t anticipate them fitting the neck of the wine bottle that well (but if I was actually making DIY party hats for adults, that’s what I would do).
Put a bit of glue on one of the flat edges.
Roll the opposite edge over it, gluing it on top. Apply a little pressure so it sticks together.
Using the single hole punch, cut circles from the blue and white card stock. If you’re like me, you’ll probably have some circles left behind from previous uses of the hole punch, so keep those too to add variety.
Glue the circles on to the hats.
Let the hats dry completely, then put them on top of your wine bottles. Mine balanced pretty easily. In fact they also balanced on top of our heads pretty well too.
