Once you have the first cut made, you can then decide what you want your hat decoration to be. In this case the heart is symmetrical, so keeping the plate folded in half makes it easy to cut the heart symmetrically. Once you’re done, open it up and decorate it any way you like. At this point I like to hand the cut out plates over to my crack squad of paint and glitter commandos.

Colored plates work great OR jazz them up yourself with some paint, pens and glitter!

Of course there’s the classic paper plate crown that can easily be used for birthdays, dress-up or Mardi Gras.
