Altered Project: Zoo-Themed Party Hat Decor (Echo Park Day at the Zoo)


Echo Park released the May edition of their Craft & Create idea book last week. It's full of inspiring projects from the Echo Park and Carta Bella design teams, along with supply lists and instructions so you can easily recreate the projects yourself (including step-by-step instructions on how to make these zoo-themed party hat decor pieces). Download your free copy here. I have two other projects in the book, on pages 6 and 16 so be sure to check those out while you're flipping through the interactive pages.

I created these party hats to be used as a centerpiece for a child's third birthday party using products from the Day at the Zoo collection.

Here's a closer look at each of the hats. These were all created on triangular pieces of chipboard that were actually meant to become a banner. I turned the pieces upside down (with the point facing up) so they resembled party hats instead and glued a small wood piece to the back so they'd stand up on their own.

If you'd like detailed instructions on how to put these cuties together, be sure to download the idea book.
