Pirate Party Hats!

As you may know my littlest guy turned a big 5 on Tuesday!
 And now it is time to have a party.. so we picked a Pirate theme.  Since it is in two weeks.. I have plenty of time to get ready.. Of course I am sure it will come down to the wire.. but a girl can always try dream!
So the first thing that I decided to make was the pirate hats for all of my little swashbuckling partygoers.
If you have seen them in the store they are upwards of $3 a piece (making a total of $66) so for $6 for two yards of felt.. I get 22 pirate hats!  Yay!
Here's how I made them!
Black, white and red felt
Hot glue gun
Fabric paint
I started by making a pattern for the hat.
Then I pinned it to my black felt and added several inches to the end so that it would wrap around the kids' head.

Next I glued the bottom in a bit so that I could add the red felt for a bandana look.
Next I glued on the red felt.
Then I glued on my pirate skull that I cut out of white felt.
Next I painted white around the top and added features to my skull.
Then I found meself some pirates.. Arrgh!
Shiver me timbers!
Walk the plank!
Now if you'll excuse me only 21 more to make!
