You don’t have to spend a great deal of money, and you don’t need to be super crafty either.

DIY Valentine’s Day Party Hat
- Paper drinking cups
- Tinsel garland
- Assorted heart stickers
- Craft glue
We were able to find all of these supplies at our local dollar store. Look for Valentine’s Day colors when choosing your cups such as pink or red. For the tinsel, you can always use leftover Christmas tinsel in either red, silver, or gold. Feel free to make your own variation of this Valentine’s Day party hat using materials you can find or already have.
1. Begin by turning your cup over so it is resting on the opening. Apply a generous strip of crafting glue along the base.
2. Wrap a length of tinsel around the base of the cup. This will act as a fun and festive trim on the hat. Press the tinsel firmly to the base of the cup so it adheres well.
3. Now, decorate the cup using your stickers. Apply the stickers in any shape or fashion that you wish. We placed a variety of glittered heart stickers all over the cup and were sure to remember to add one to the top too.
4. You want to apply some string next so that you can tie the hat to your head. To do this, cut a length of string and using tape, attach it to the insides of the cup. Leave the ends of the string to hang at each end so you can tie it snug under the chin when you are ready to wear it.
If you wish, you can embellish your Valentine’s Day party hat with glitter, markers, paint, or any other items you wish or that appeal to you. These hats are great to make for family or classroom parties, and would even look great and serve as a Valentine’s Day party decoration when placed on each place setting at a dinner party. Either way, these hats are sure to add some festive Valentine’s Day charm! Looking for more cute Valentine’s Day crafts? Check out our adorable Love Bug!
