This New Year’s Eve Party Hat free printable template is inspired by my clock-obsessed toddler, Elise. By request, I updated my 2012 hat for 2013 — and it’s a little bit larger too.
Choose from purple and blue printable New Year’s hats with a countdown clock, stars, and “Happy New Year” in the Lavanderia font from the Lost Type Co-op (via howaboutorange). It’s based on Elise’s free printable pink monkey birthday party hat.
This quick and easy free New Year’s Eve Party Hat is for you to cut out, make and enjoy at your own New Year’s Eve party. Have a super lucky 2013!

How to make a free printable New Year’s Eve Party Hat:
Cut out the New Year’s Eve party hat, carefully cutting the two white slits on the hat tab.
Take apart some curly ribbon bows – I had these left over from Elise’s stickers birthday party – or you can curl your own ribbon.
Grab a couple curly ribbons and fold in the middle.
Tie a knot in the middle of the curly ribbon.
Place the knot inside the New Year’s Eve party hat. Fold and curl the New Year’s Eve party hat, slipping the tab inside the slit.
The New Year’s Eve Party Hat will look like this when it’s together.
Cut two pieces of white ribbon about 12-16 inches long each. Tape them to the inside of the New Year’s Eve party hat using VELCRO Perfect Presents, tape, or a stapler. Party on!
