Make your own flamingo party hats #flamingoparty #letsflamingle

I have always had a bit of a crush on flamingos or ‘mingos as I sometimes affectionately refer to them. This crush has seemed to festoon into a full-blown obsession as of late, it seems I cannot enter a store or scroll through Instagram without one of those pink, adorable beauties catching my eye. So when Gilit and I teamed up I knew that our combined loved of parties and shared affinity for flamingos would be bound to result in some ah-ma-zing flamingo party ideas! The first (of I am sure many) flamingo-inspired ideas is a cute and super simple Flamingo Party Hat.

1170X425 TO CREATE

  1. Print out the template provided and using scissors cut out the template shapes.
  2. Trace the template shapes onto the appropriate colored card stock — the flamingo head on pink cardstock twice, the face details on white cardstock and the beak on black cardstock — then cut out the shapes using scissors staying on the inside of the lines.
  3. Assemble the pieces of cardstock and adhere together using double sided tape.
  4. Using a black sharpie add an eye to the flamingo head.
  5. Make a bend (approximately 1/2″) at the bottom of the flamingo neck, insert the bent part of the cardstock into the slit on the side of the party hat to see where it looks best.
  6. Once you are satisfied with the placement, apply double sided tape to the folded part of the card stock and secure it to the inside of the hat.
  7. Using hot glue, attach a few feathers on the side of the hat to resemble wings.
  8. Place the party hat on top of your head and let’s flamingle!
