Updated February 21, 2017

If you are hosting a medieval birthday party for your child, you can make the party more festive by creating decorations and party hats that are on theme. For example, children at the party can wear medieval cone hats like ones that would have been worn by members of the royal court. You can make medieval cone hats using a few basic craft materials that can be purchased at an art supply store or craft shop.

Cut out a 24-inch circle from card stock using scissors.

Cut out a 24-inch circle from fabric using scissors.

Cover the circle of card stock with craft glue.

Glue the fabric circle onto the card stock circle.

Cut across the circle until you reach the middle point.

Insert a hot glue stick into a hot glue gun, and plug it in to heat up for five minutes.

Fold the circle over onto itself to form a cone.

Squeeze hot glue down the seam, and hold it into place until the glue cools and hardens.

Cut four to five ribbons to measure 18 inches long.

Hot glue the ribbons onto the tip of the point.

Cut another piece of ribbon to measure 18 inches long.

Hot glue the ribbon around the base of the medieval hat. Allow the hot glue to cool before wearing the hat.
