Happy, happy 2013 to all! We’re still busy enjoying the last few days of holiday fun (we’ll be back to the regular swing of things all too soon), but for now I thought I’d drop in and share the homemade hats that helped us ring in the New Year.
Jared surprised us all with his superior newspaper-style hat-making skills (always pulling out the hidden talents, that one), so he folded up a bunch of brown craft paper hats for us to use as bases. After that, we went to town with glitter, felt and tissue paper.
They’re super simple, but I’d venture to say they’re my favorite hats to date. I mean, does anything say happy New Year like sparkles?
My sister’s hat is the one with the black heart with white polka dots, mine is donning the anchor (nautical is my jam lately), and my mom’s is the lovely glitter flower that looks like it took lots of time and forethought. In reality, she whipped that puppy up in about five minutes while we cleaned up all the stray glitter. The girl’s got a thumb for hats.
Beany’s teeny hat was free from glitter but perfect for a happy girl with a love of green and bows. If only she had kept it on her head for more than a few minutes.
Oh yes, and here’s Jared’s covered in a happy layering of blue tissue paper squares and my brother’s, which appears to be a hybrid between a horse, rhino and unicorn. Hats for all!
How did you celebrate New Year’s Eve? A party? Hats? Food? Sleeping by 10? I’d love to hear about it!
