For each hat
- Paper bowl
- Two pipe cleaners
- One headband (I purchased this at the Dollar store)
- Tissue paper (how many is up to you)
- Optional ideas: stickers, curling ribbon, markers, feathers, silk flowers
Use a needle or pointy object to poke two holes….on opposite sides of the bowl. Lace one pipe cleaner through each hole, leaving a loop on either side. The loop should be on the inside of the bowl.

I then used the pipe cleaner to twist on some curly ribbon and pink feathers. The possibilities are endless though…you can add silk flowers, tulle, fabric scraps, just about anything that you think would make it fun!Once you’re done with the pipe cleaner, you can either cut the remainder off, or wrap the extra part around your finger to form a coil. Then slowly and gently pull one piece of tissue paper up at a time….separating the layers.
When finished, it should look something similar to this. Now repeat the steps for the other side of the hat.
While the girls were waiting for our scones to finish baking, they decorated their hats so they could wear it to their tea party. I gave them markers and stickers….
They even glued on a few pom poms and feathers.
Tea hats on to complete their outfits for our afternoon tea! Aren’t they adorable?
