Step 1

Paint the paper plate hat

To make a “gold” paper plate hat, put some yellow paint and some glitter powder on the center of the plate.

You may use a different color of paint.

Mix it around until the whole paper plate is covered. Set the paper plate aside to dry after.

Glitter can be very messy to use. Rather than mixing the paint and glitters together on a separate container, you can mix it on the actual paper plate itself to prevent more mess.
