Making the Christmas cards that people send you into ornaments is a great way to personalize your tree. And saves you the trouble of having to find the ornaments that you stored away in your attic. It's really easy just punch a hole in the card and use a ribbon to make a loop.
Our own version of a New Years Eve hat it is much more festive then the pointy ones they sell in the store.
You take a brown paper bag you can get them from the grocery store
then you start to roll the top down. Take your time or you could rip your bag the hat looks neater if you make less folds and don't have to start over
Then comes the fun part you get to decorate the hat any way that you would like. I was helping to run a kids program they got pretty creative some even turned there hats into bunnies and pigs.
This was the example hat that we bought from Ceder Grove that was our inspiration
