We celebrated Miss Eleanor's 6th birthday earlier this month, and instead of buying party hats we made some out of paper cups and headbands. We found the idea via Pinterestfrom a Portuguese blog, Estefi Machado. I found both the headbands and cups at the dollar store (the mini pompoms too), so this was a super-affordable party craft! Our crowns were sticking up from the headbands a bit, but I'm sure you could lay them flatter with some fiddling. Fast, fun, and easy crafts are a must for crafting with groups of kids!
