Birthday parties are a fun reason to celebrate and create some crafty accessories and decorations! My daughter loves art projects and creating hats and crowns for her friends. These craft ideas are fun party accessories and easy for kids to design!
DIY Party Hat Cute Kid’s Craft
One of my daughter’s favorite things to bring to a party is a homemade party hat for the birthday girl. These cute DIY kids’ party hats are easy to make out of a sheet of card stock and a few decorative accents. A fun paper party hat makes the birthday girl or boy feel so special!
To make a homemade paper party hat, roll up a sheet of cardstock into a cone. I tucked a piece of tulle in the top, before hot gluing the edges together. Using hot glue for kid’s crafts minimizes drying time. Win!
I cut off the bottom of this kid’s paper party hat to make it level, and glued on some decorative rhinestone trim. You could use all sorts of craft supplies to decorate your paper cone party hat; stickers, pom-poms, jewels, pipe cleaners, and more!
A homemade party hat is a fun afternoon project to do with kids!
The little birthday girl looked darling in her homemade paper party hat. Next time you celebrate a birthday, design a custom homemade party hat for the birthday girl or birthday boy! Making homemade party hats is a very inexpensive and very fun kid’s craft and kids will love making a hat for their friends.
DIY Adhesive Sticker Jewels
Making sticker jewels is a fun craft project to do with glamorous little girls. You can stick them on your hands, arms, or face or use them in a more practical way to decorate homemade cards, Valentines, and craft projects. You can turn any rhinestones into sticker jewels by adding double-sided adhesive tape to the back of each rhinestone!
To make your own sticker jewels, you just need an assortment of flat-back rhinestones and double sided adhesive. I used the standard adhesive squares often used for scrapbook photos. They are already cut into squares and are easy to trim around each rhinestone shape.
Simply attach an adhesive square to the back of a rhinestone, trim off any excess, and remove the backing when ready to use.
We used our homemade sticker jewels to decorate a cardboard crown for my three-year-old. She also had fun decorating her arms with sticker jewels. When the adhesive wears out, you can easily peel it off and replace it to use the sticker jewel again!
Sticker jewels are a lot of fun to make and play with! What will you decorate?
Fairy Glitter Jars
These fun fairy jars are easy to make with a cool VOSS plastic water bottle. Just fill it up with colored water, add some glitter and drop in some beads, rhinestones, and gems. Seal the VOSS bottle with a piece of tape. Shake it up and watch the glitter and gems swirl around the bottle!

DIY Rose Crown
Easily make a DIY rose crown headband using flowers from your own garden. Any little girl will love wearing a fresh flower crown!
- Cut a variety of fresh roses with long stems.
- Trim all the thorns and cut off leaves that are too dense.
- Arrange the roses and stems in a circle and secure them together with fishing line.
- To reinforce the crown, you can weave ribbon through the rose crown to keep it together.
Easy as can be, this real rose crown took me less than 20 minutes to create. To maximize the freshness of our homemade crown of roses, I put it in the refrigerator when my daughter was not wearing it, keeping it pretty and fresh for about 1 day.
