Party Hats, Paper Baskets & Dollar Store Fun!

Did you know that if you visit my craft room, you get to wear a party hat...JUST BECAUSE?

I figure, everyday is like a party in my craft room. I made these hats last year for Josie's birthday. They came six to a bag and were found at my local Dollar Tree Store. I took apart the hats and covered them with scrapbooking paper and my famous crepe paper ruffles.

See here for party hat instructions. Josie wore her party hat last weekend to help decorate paper Easter eggs for Nana's hospital room.

In case you need any last minute Easter basket ideas, I found this paper Easter basket at the Dollar Tree. I really like the flower paper, but felt it was missing something.

All it needed was a bit of crepe paper, some trim and my trusty tacky glue.

I can't wait to help the Easter bunny fill these baskets.

If you've got boys, I've got an idea for decorating an Easter basket that's a little less feminine. Stay tuned and happy spring!

What a beautiful job on the paper baskets...I used to craft...but somehow the right side of my brain stopped working when I became the mother of 5! ;)

Super cute hats! I bought a package of them during Christmas to make into little trees (but never got around to it) -- Sigh, next year! :)

OMGOsh..those baskets are SO cute!! Great idea to cover the hats with scrapbooking paper. I will remember that one when I have a bunch of mismatched hats. Or actually, I guess I could make my own very easily. Cool!
