Turn an ordinary birthday party hat into a cute shark party craft or decoration. To make shark party hats, you will need:
  • Cone shaped birthday party hats.
  • Blue construction paper.
  • White paper strips.
  • Black paper scraps or googly eyes.
  • Glue stick.
  • Scissors.
Instructions:
  1. Wrap a sheet of blue construction paper around a party hat.
  2. Seal the paper with a glue stick and trim the excess edges.
  3. Cut the shape of the shark tail and fins from the remaining blue paper.
  4. Fold the bottom edge of the fins and line with glue. Stick to the hat (one on each side and the dorsal fin on the front center).
  5. Glue the shark tail to the point of the hat.
  6. Cut the white strips of paper in a zig-zag pattern to make shark teeth. Glue around the bottom edge of the hat.
  7. Cut small circles from the remaining white paper to make the eyes. Glue a small black spot of paper (pupils) in the middle of the eyes. You can use googly eyes instead of making your own.
  8. Glue the eyes to the hat.
