I was walking down a street in New York City one night a few years ago when I saw a happy group of partiers with party hats going by. They had personalized their hats with really funny sayings in marker. I thought it was fun inspiration for a party DIY. I love the idea of customizing a hat with something funny just for the person wearing it.

For this DIY we painted the hand lettering but you could also just do it with a silver or black sharpie. This reminded me of the time we made these custom tote bags for my birthday party guests. I used little sayings and phrases and memories from my life and painted them on tote bag and gave them to guests. They were a big hit.
