Free printable templates for confetti covered birthday party hats from A Joyful Riot
So my daughter somehow turned one on Wednesday?! I have mixed feelings about this timeline because part of me wants to say “what in the world happened to that year!?” whereas part of me feels like it was definitely the longest year of my life.

I have a few things I wanted to say and share about my first year as a Mom but before I delve into that I want you all to grab these adorable party hats!

You can barely tell the difference between these charms and the real thing huh? :D Seriously though, these are easy as pie to make and you can get a ton from just one little package of clay so that makes them a really frugal and practical piece of jewelry.

I also love harem pants so I’ve been whipping some up for Stella using some fun prints like these ones. A soft jersey or organic cotton works best because theres a little stretch to them but a variety of fabrics will work and this pattern (available from newborn to 3T sizes) really is so simple! Just a few seams and you’re done! Trust me, even if you’re uncomfortable in front of a sewing machine, you can do this! Beginners feel no fear!
