New Year’s Eve Craft: Resolution Hats {guest tutorial}

Hey everybody! Season 14 of So You Think You’re Crafty is going to be fantastic. However, it won’t be starting until the New Year – we decided to let the crafters have a little break and family time too :) . But I have a great schedule of guest posts and shop spotlights lined up from now until then. Have a great Holiday season and see you all after the New Year!*

I’m so excited to be here on SYTYC! I love watching the competitions
unfold, and I’m really appreciate Missy putting it all together!

Well, I blog about sewing over at Feathers Flights, but while
thinking about this guest post I couldn’t think of anything to do with
sewing. I kept thinking about a tradition my husband’s family
does. Growing up my family had lots of great Christmas
traditions, but we didn’t have many New Year’s Eve traditions.
Luckily, my husband’s family had lots of fun New Year’s Eve
traditions, and one is a fun craft for you and children and helps
everyone start thinking of the next year. It’s the resolution paper
hats.

Supplies

Newspapers

Fun pens, markers, glitter, etc.

1. Fold a newspaper for everyone in your family. Here’s a nice refresher.

2. Write each person’s name on their hat and the upcoming year. Then
help them write things they will do the next year or things they want
to achieve. For example, mine were grow my hair out, read twelve
books, sew lots, grow a garden, etc.. For Henry I wrote, turns two,
learns to run, learns new words, goes to nursery, etc.
3. Let your kids go to town decorating their hat.

This craft is easily customized for any age. I glued feathers and
sequins on mine and colored it with crayons. (Don’t laugh, but I
totally forgot the year and wrote 2012!)

Henry got to practice his coloring. Older kids can practice their
writing and spelling besides coloring. You can get some really fun art
materials for your kids to play with.

Henry enjoys coloring just as much as he enjoys chewing on crayon boxes.

4. Take pictures in your hats! It’s really fun for kids to wear hats
that they decorated.
5. Save them and next New Year’s Eve take them out again. Your kids
will be able to see their work, and check if they did all they wanted
that year.
Thanks for having me Missy! I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year’s!
