There is no doubt in my mind that my kid loves her father much more than she loves me.
That’s ok, and really its no surprise.
With the exception of summer, she’s stuck with me for at least eight hours a day.
Eight hours of random dance parties, eight hours of DIY projects, eight hours of hearing me scream at the dogs, eight hours of reruns of Sex and the City.
Wait a minute, why doesn’t she love me the most? Obviously, I am the most awesome parent alive.
Although, maybe not the most award winning one…
Adding to her reasons of why I’m not her favorite would be this lovely birthday hat I made her.
I find it adorable.
She refused to wear it for more than 30 seconds.

DIY Birthday Hat
Isn’t it adorable?
Sparkly, yet not too girly with the purple?
I thought so too.
I made this birthday hat with the same template I used for last year’s party hat. Get the details here.
The purple glitter card stock was a great base, and I added a bit more pizzaz with the bright poms. I did use my Silhouette to cut out the “2,” however, you could easily follow this tutorial here on how to cut letters and numbers without a silhouette. I attached everything with hot glue.
I did manage to sneak a photo right after I tricked her into wearing it for a brief shining moment.
Doesn’t she look thrilled with it?
At least the birthday hat still looks good by itself.
Have you made any party hats before?
Were you that rockstar mom who actually got your kids to wear them?
