1 Gather materials!

Prep a clean flat surface and gather the materials.

2 Cut the stencil.

Print and cut the stencil shape. Attach the sides together with filament to form a hat.

3 Doodle the hat.

Gently trace along the outer edge of the hat and begin to fill it in with filament.

4 Trace the phrase.

Slowly trace the phrase on the hat stencil.

5 Add detail.

Add fun dots and details to your hat using the filament.

6 Draw a topper on the hat.

Using more filament, begin to draw in 3D to form the top pompom on the hat. Continue to fill in and gently shape it to create a ball.

7 Add a rim.

Create a rim on the hat by tracing filament up and down on the edge of the hat.

8 Fill in the hat.

Using the background color, fill in the rest of the hat with filament. Take care to avoid the details you've already added.

9 Add a headband.

Using more filament, attach a headband to the hat. The party hat is done!
