DIY Confetti Birthday Party Hats for Fun and Kids

Everyone loves a good celebration. These are super fun to make and would work for any age kiddo – even adults. I think every party should have as much confetti as possible – and as many sprinkles too! I am excited to share the free pattern and the directions so you can whip these up for your next hooplah! My thought is the more DIY that goes into everything, the better. Let’s make some DIY Confetti Birthday Party Hats! This is great for fun and kids!

Easy DIY Confetti Party Hats

Materials and Supplied Needed

Let me warn you, confetti can be messy. I would recommend doing this on a surface and in an area suitable for the job. This is what you will need.



Start by downloading the free hat pattern and cutting it out.

Step Two

Cut the pattern out and trace it onto the card stock you plan to use. I LOVE the look of cardboard and kraft paper so that is what I chose.

Step Three

Paint a thick layer of Decou-Page along the edge of the hat.

Step Four

Pour confetti over the wet glue and let it dry. Isn’t this a joy. Fun and kids just go together and this is perfect for both.

Step Five

Paint your styrofoam balls with the glue and cover them in confetti then let them dry.

This is easiest if you poke a pencil in it and use that as a handle. PLUS, that hole will be used to put the ball on the hat so it is a WIN-WIN.

Step Six

Once everything is dry, Fold the edge of the hat (as shown on the pattern) and put a strip of hot glue on it then adhere it to the other side creating the HAT!

How To Manage Crafting at a Kid Birthday Party

There are several things you can do to create a successful craft event with a group of kids! Here are some of my top tips from being a mom and a teacher!

Choose Appropriate Crafts

Think about the age of the kids and the group attending. Make sure that your project is one that is going to be liked by the kids based on their interests, likes and dislikes. Choose a craft that can be done by the kids on their own without supervision. If you have special needs kids or kids of different ages – try teaming them up with one being a helper.

Test the Craft First

Make the craft from start to finish and have a completed sample to show. Some craft projects are harder than they might look in a picture. If you find the idea on a blog (like this one) or when searching online – make sure you are using a reliable source with good directions. This is best for having the most fun and kids to be successful.

Have ALL Necessary Supplies

Create a list and stock up BEFORE the day of the celebration. If necessary, have a bag for each kid with the supplies they need to complete the project. Some supplies might be shared too like scissors or glue.

Pick An Appropriate Location

Make sure you have plenty of space for crafting. The time of year and the weather might play a factor in your decision for location too. For example, tie-dyeing should probably be done outdoors!
