New Year Hat - Crafts for Kids


What You Need

  • Construction paper – any color you like
  • Stones of different colors and sizes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ribbons – any 2 bright colors



  1. The first step is to make a cone from the construction paper. For this, use a ribbon and measure the circumference of your head. The length of the ribbon that goes around your head will be the diameter of a circle. Draw a circle with a radius half of the length of the ribbon on your construction paper. Cut the circle.

  3. Cut out a little more than a quarter of the circle and fold it as shown in the pictures below.

  5. Fold the construction paper to get the cone shape of desired size, but don’t stick the ends together yet. Mark the centre top of the cone. (You can cut the construction paper if too much is being folded inside.)

  7. Take 2 ribbons of different colors. Cut each small piece of ribbon into thin strips, from the bottom to a little more than half its length, like in the picture below.

  13. It’s time to decorate the hat as you like! Here, we’ve taken a strip of red ribbon long enough to go around the mouth of the hat. We’ve glued different stones along the length of the ribbon to give it a fun, simple pattern.

  15. Once the stones have been stuck to the ribbon, you can now stick the ribbon around the open mouth of the cone.
