Cro-Shayley makes a Reflective Celebration Hat

Reflective YarnIn one of my previous Cro-Shayley blogs, I mentioned I was on a Red Heart Reflective Yarn kick. Well here’s another awesome quick and easy craft project using this yarn…a Reflective Celebration Hat.

Just make a cone hat and add a Reflective yarn pom pom and trim to the hat. What a great project to make that is fun for all ages and perfect for any birthday party or holiday get together. Imagine your friends’ and families’ faces when they see what happens when you take a flash photo of them with this hat on. That’s just a surprise in itself! :)

Supplies Needed:
Ruler
Compass or Pencil & String
Scissors
Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Construction Paper
Fabric
Red Heart Reflective Yarn
Pom Pom maker

Step 1
Use a ruler to measure and mark the center of the construction paper.

Step 2
Use a compass to draw a half circle on the construction paper.
-If you do not have a compass, use a pencil with a string tied to it. (I used these steps because my compass’ max radius width is 6 inches and I wanted my cone hat to be a little wider.) To do this, tie a string around a pencil as seen in the image below. Hold down the other end of the string on the center mark of the construction paper and pull the pencil tight and draw a half circle.

Cut out the half circle. Lay it on a piece of fabric and trace the pattern.

Step 6
Roll/fold the two ends of the half circle together to make a cone shape. Once you have adjusted the cone to the desired width, hot glue the hat together at the seam.
