New Year's Eve Party Hats To Add Some Fun To Your Big Bash

We all know it's true: a New Year's Eve celebration just isn't complete without party hats and tiaras, no matter how tacky they might look. But this year, with some inspiration from this New Year's Eve craft idea by Mer Mag, you can learn how to make your own personalized hat that you'll actually be proud to wear.

All it takes is a piece of card stock and whatever embellishments you'd like -- ribbons, puff paint, pipe cleaners, you name it. Plus, this craft is easy and fun for everyone in the family to do. And even though they don't take much time to make, this little project can also be a great way to keep the kids busy while you prepare the house for guests.
