Hand-Lettered Party Hats for New Year’s Eve

We always have a big house party on December 31st with family, friends and tons of kids, so I thought that creating custom hand-lettered party hats for New Year’s Eve would be the perfect project to get everyone to show their personality, and maybe share a resolution or two!  They are quick and easy to make with supplies you probably already have in your craft stash.  Then add color and sparkle with your favorite pens, markers, and adhesives from Tombow USA.  Enjoy and HAPPY (almost) NEW YEAR!!

Here’s how to create Custom Lettered New Year’s Eve Hats:

Print out the  HAND-LETTERED PARTY HATS FOR NEW YEARS EVE  template, cut out, trace onto chipboard and cut out again. Trace the template onto cardstock with MONO Drawing Pencils.

STEP TWO

Now it is time to decorate and have fun!!  Use Tombow Dual Brush Pen 676 to create a hand-lettered Happy New Year 2020 all over the background.  Then use 673 to add graphic lines and chevrons.  Trim with silver tinsel around the base using MONO Multi Liquid Glue from Tombow.  The MONO Multi will set up in about 15-20 minutes.

STEP THREE

Next is a simple checkerboard pattern featuring Dual Brush Pens 133 and 452 (one of MY favorite combos).  Outline then add a hand-lettered 2020 with Dual Brush Pen N25.  Randomly write HAPPY, NEW and YEAR all over with Fudenosuke Brush Pen Twin Tip.

STEP FOUR

Finally, I have a party hat colored with Dual Brush Pen 451.  Add the THIS IS MY YEAR 2020 quote plus stars in Dual Brush Pens 443 and 535 for a whimsical touch!  Attach blue ball fringe trim to the edge of the party hat and sequins all over with MONO Multi Liquid Glue.

STEP FIVE

Run a line of Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive down the tab of each party hat, insert the tab in the slot and secure.  The Xtreme Adhesive runner is five times stronger than traditional adhesive runners, I use it ALL THE TIME!  Just remember, roll to apply and swipe the tip at a 90-degree angle to release the adhesive.

STEP SIX

Attach ribbon, twine, yarn or elastic with a stapler, in an “X” pattern.
