A Season To Sparkle pt. 3 – Party Hats and Goodies

We’re back today with more sparkly details from the Season to Sparkly Party Hop!


Here is my big reveal! I created the DIY Glitter Christmas Party Hats for the occasion. I’ll show you how you can make your own in just a minute.


I am a huge sucker for caramel and chocolate. These fancy Cashew Turtles by LGRollins look so delicious and would make great holiday gifts as well as party food. Find out how to make them here.


Rock Candy does double duty here as a drink stir that not only looks fance but adds flavor, too! Get the free printable tags over at You-Make-Do.

And now for the party hats…

Step 1: Paint the base of the hat the desired color. I used acryllic paints this time, but have also spray-painted party hats before.

Step 2: After the base has adequately dried, use painters tape, to mask off a section of the bottom of the hat. I was going for a random paint-dipped look.

Step 3: Spray the bottom of the hat with gold paint.

Step 4: Before paint has a chance to dry, sprinkle gold glitter on the paint.

Step 5: Use hot glue to add desired embellishments. I used Christmas ornaments to top the hat. I had to pull off part of the part of the ornament where the hook attaches to allow the star ornament to sit on top of the hat.

My gold garland was a bit over-whelming to the hat, so I ended up giving it a “haircut”. It worked best to do this before gluing.

I couldn’t decide between the bows and the stars. The bows reminded me of presents and the stars made the hats resemble Christmas trees. I decided that the bows were more feminine so I used them on the more girly colors and put the stars on the blues and greens.

. I think it would be fun to experiment with making them more literally Christmas trees for a different party. I would use green paint and glue large sequin “ornaments” all over.

These would look so fun on top of a fancy dinner table setting for Christmas or New Years Eve!

Don’t forget, we are still partying for two more days with great projects from more amazing bloggers!
