Gather together all of your materials.
Paint party hats with your acrylic paint, if desired. I painted mine with antique white acrylic craft paint. Let paint dry completely before adding embellishments.
Glue your flat embellishments like ribbon and lace, using craft glue or hot glue (for adults ONLY). A lacy or ribbon border around the top of the cone looks really pretty. Set your craft aside and allow glue to dry.
Add dimensional embellishments like buttons, rhinestones, or costume jewelry.
Create a ribbon handle by gluing the ends of your 60-inch length of ribbon to the sides of your cone.
Let glue dry.
Fill with flowers or brightly clored tissue paper.
