DIY First Birthday Shirt and Party Hat – plus 15 other birthday outfit ideas to make your little one unbelievably adorable on the Big Day!

Baby’s 1st Birthday! So many mixed emotions!  Your baby is literally getting cuter by the day, and it’s so fun to watch him/her grow.  But at the same time, you just wish time would slow down! Well, we know that’s not happening, so at least we can pull out all the stops when celebrating and dressing our sweet babies for their 1st birthdays!  The 1st Birthday is such a huge milestone, and every mama wants that day to be something everyone remembers (even though we all know the Guest of Honor won’t!).

Part of the fun is making sure your little one looks absolutely delicious – and this cute DIY 1st birthday shirt and hat will do the trick!  We have a super-easy-to-follow tutorial for a hat and shirt that you can create yourself.

DIY First Birthday Shirt and Party Hat Tutorial

making a first birthday shirt

To make your hat, trace a party hat from the store onto cute paper or fabric (or just use the party hat from the store).
Then, fold and glue, and then glue pom-poms on top and around the sides.

First, cut out a circle. Then, trace the circle on to the fabric and cut out.
supplies for shirt
Trace a “1” onto scrap fabric and then cut.

I thought the “1” needed a little more spice, so I threaded some blue through.
Then, I used Heat N Bond to bond it to my shirt.

Here is the end result… Pretty dang cute!
 It was so funny watching him dig into that cake. He absolutely loved it! I think all of the work I put into this party definitely paid off, and now I will have all these cute pictures forever! I love my chunky monkey!
