Fabric Christmas Craft Idea: DIY Christmas Tree Party Hats
Thanks to Waverly Inspirations at Walmart for sponsoring this post. The favorable opinions of the incredibly cute fabrics, ribbons, and paint are 100% my own. Post contains affiliate links.
Each month Waverly Inspirations at Walmart sends me a surprise box of fabric, ribbon, and paints and challenges me to create something inspiring with their products. This month’s challenge was to create a Christmas craft using the box of supplies pictured below!
My first thought was to create a forest of fabric trees using styrofoam tree molds, but honestly that idea is a bit tired and the styrofoam molds can be pricey. Instead, I used inexpensive paper party hats found in the party supply aisle at Walmart. This craft is easy enough for older kids to do and everyone can get creative decorating their own tree. All you need to create these DIY Christmas Tree Party Hats are strips of fabric, ribbon, hot glue, and paper hats.

Step 1: Cut fabric into two inch strips.
Feel free to finish off your edges for a more polished look. You can also use pinking shears to create a decorate edge that won’t fray. I like the rustic look of the cut fabric so didn’t worry about it.
Step 2: Hot glue your ribbon or fabric strips onto the party hats.
Start at the bottom of the hat and glue the end of the fabric strip to the back seam of the hat. Fold the ribbon back over itself to create a ruffle effect and glue each ruffle in place. Glue the ruffle at the top only so that the bottom can furl out. Repeat this process all the way up the cone until it is filled with fabric ruffles.
Step 3: Combine different fabric strips to create unique trees.
You can alternate your fabric strips in order to create a more colorful tree. Feel free to decorate your trees with sequins, stars, mini-ornaments, etc. or enjoy them unadorned. I wanted the fabrics to be the star of the show so didn’t add any additional embellishments.
Once complete, I displayed the Christmas party hats on this beautiful marble and acacia cake stand from Walmart. They make a fun centerpiece!
My youngest asked if we can wear them every night at dinner. 🙂
As you can see he’s a bit of a ham!
