While all your pieces are drying..
Mod Podge your scrapbook clock

Want to ring in the New Year with STYLE?   
Why not make one of these New Year's Eve Glitter Party Hats?
Pin It
Well, now you can!  And I'll show you how.
Wood Ball
Mod Podge
Wood Circle 
Glitter (lots of it!)
Wood Letters
Hot Glue

Start by tracing a circle on some kind of paper.  I used a paper bag.
Then cut it in half make the template for your party hat and pin it on your felt.
Next cut it out.
Unpin and roll into a cone shape.
Hot glue the ends into place.
Add some bling 
to your wood ball.
Then glue to the top of your hat.
Hot glue lace to the bottom edge
and a sweet bow to the back.
Then grab your wood circle and hot glue some lace to the back
 in a ruffled manner.
Now grab your Mod Podge and 
Glitter the heck out of your circle!
Hot glue it onto your hat.
Grab your Mod Podge again and some brightly colored glitter 
and glitter the numbers 2013.
Hot glue them onto your hat with some rhinestones!
Hot glue some ribbon to the insides and tie it onto someone you LOVE 
and want to share the New Year with!
Hope you make one to share with your LOVE!
Happy New Year!
