Cookie & Craft Shark Week: D.I.Y. Shark Party Hat V1

Every year, Shark Week coincides with KF’s birthday and (as you might already know from reading this blog) he LOVES sharks. This year is Shark Week’s 25th Anniversary and the kick off will be on August 12th, giving us plenty of time to prep and share our favorite shark related projects with you.

We are going to kick off The Juice’s “Cookie & Craft Shark Week” with one of our favorite projects from last year. Discovery channel, re runs their best Shark Week episodes- why wouldn’t we?

This D.I.Y. Shark Party hat got huge smiles last year. Follow the step by step on how to make your own below. In our next post we will share D.I.Y. Shark Party Hat V2 with you…

For KF’s totally “JAWSOME” Shark Party hats, I started out with plain paper hats purchased at Party City. I bought 3 packs (some matte, some metallic) so I could use only the colors that matched our theme.

We went with the blue shades, purple and pink for me of coarse!
Using a 1 inch circle punch, we punched dark grey and black paper to use for the eyes and attached them with glue dots. Next we cut plain white paper cut into long triangles for the teeth.

We kept our inspiration close just in case…

On the inside front of hat brim, I drew a line with craft glue and attached the white triangles in a row, slightly overlapping…

Since sharks have crazy, uneven teeth, don’t worry about making your triangles too perfect.

Drinking coffee from a shark mug while doing this project made it even more fun!

Place the hats on their sides while the teeth dry for about 10 minutes.

Once the glue is dry, bend the teeth back.
