DIY Robot Party Hats

Throw a robot party that is out of this world with these amaz­ing and easy-to-make DIY robot party hats! You can make the hats in min­utes with a few sim­ple sup­plies, then wow your lit­tle party guests with some fab­u­lous futur­is­tic fun.

DIY Robot Party Hats

I have a lit­tle con­fes­sion to make before we get started—these are made with ordi­nary party hats pur­chased from the gro­cery store and wrapped in alu­minum foil.

DIY Robot Party Hats

What You Need

  • Party hats
  • Alu­minum foil
  • Scis­sors
  • Felt (we used blue and red)
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks
  • Metal­lic pipe cleaners
  • Drink­ing glass (optional: used to form cir­cle shapes)
DIY Robot Party Hats

Step 1
Open up your party hat by push­ing the tab on the side of the hat through the slot. Once you open the hat, flat­ten it as much as possible.

Step 2
Lay the flat­tened hat on top of some alu­minum foil. Cut the foil out in the shape of the hat and cover the hat with the foil. You shouldn’t need glue to affix the foil to the hat, but if you want to use it, feel free.

Step 3
Use hot glue to fix the hat closed again! Poof! It looks like a metal­lic hat! The exist­ing strap on the hat (typ­i­cally elas­tic) should pull right through to the bot­tom with ease.

Step 4
Make any fun and robotic shape you wish out of your metal­lic pipe clean­ers for the antenna on top of the hat.

Pro tip: Geo­met­ric shapes always work well. If you want to form a cir­cle, twist the pipe cleaner around a glass then slide it off. Voila! You have a per­fectly formed cir­cle. Twist the ends together, poke through the hole in the top of the hat, and dab a lit­tle glue to hold your robotic antenna in place!

Step 5
Cut out robot but­ton shapes from your felt and cre­ate a design for each hat! Glue the but­tons on and cre­ate the robotic moth­er­board of your imagination!
