DIY Party Hat

Are you ready to partay?  We are now only two short days away from celebrating our 5th birthday here at Swagbucks!  Do you have your party hat on, yet?  Wait, what’s that?  You don’t have a party hat?  Well, we have to fix that immediately!  Fortunately, I found a great Party Hat tutorial on, and I’m here to share it with you.


  • Downloadable Hat Template Click here to download.
  • Heavy Paper (like poster board or cardstock)
  • Ribbon
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • X-acto Knife


Step 1: Download hat pdf. Print, then cut out the template. Take the hat template and trace it onto the heavy paper.

Step 2: Cut out the traced party hat.

Step 3: Put the tab into the slot.

Step 4: On each side of the hat make criss crossed cuts with your x-acto knife.

Step 5: Push the ribbon through each hole (I use my x-acto to do this) and tie a knot to hold it.

Now you’re free to decorate it any way that you’d like!  Make sure to keep it Swagbucks-y!  Tweet us a picture of yourself rockin’ your party hat and include your Swag Name and we might hook you up with 100 Swag Bucks!  Use the hashtag #SBPartyHat.  Keep tweeting your pictures throughout our birthday celebration!

Party Hard!
