Pink monkey printable birthday party hat for kids

Pink monkey printable birthday party hat for kids free craft project tutorial by Kathy Beymer at Merriment Design

I made this pink monkey birthday hat for Elise to wear on her 1st birthday. She was a good sport about it and I think she looked adorable especially when she dug into her matching monkey birthday cake.

It’s really easy to put together and attach the white ribbon ties. The free printable PDF below says “Happy Birthday” instead of “Happy Bday Elise” and I can customize it for you for a nominal charge – change year, add names, change colors and more – or create a custom party invitation. Just send me an email.

Cut it out along the outside markings and along the two notches on the side.

Carefully cut the two slits in the notched tab using your Xacto knife.

…and also carefully cut the slit.

Curl the hat onto itself, tucking the notched tab into the slits. When you slide it up, it will look like this:

Cut two pieces of white ribbon about 12-16 inches long each.

Hi Kathy, Well the invites I've made have like an old map in the background, so like a sea blue, like the colour on a globe?

Would love to use this for my son's first birthday party, it's a jungle theme. Do you have a blue version?

Hi Rachel, I could make a blue version. Can you point me to shades of blue that you have in mind?
