When first birthday parties roll around, it isn’t difficult to recognize the guest of honor — he’s the cute one with the gummy smile and frosting smeared in his eyebrows. But if you want the birthday baby to stand out in the crowd (or, at least, take some seriously adorable pics for Grandma) try one of these party hats on for size.

Crafty Keepsake

This topper looks all fancy pants, but it’s actually super simple to DIY. All you need is a little bit of fabric, embroidery thread and some ribbon, and you’ve got yourself a bonafide heirloom.
