Patriotic Hat

By: Symone Grady
This red, white & blue paper plate hat is perfect to craft up for some patriotic holidays!

  • Paper plate
  • Scissors
  • Blue paint
  • Paint brush
  • Red & white cardstock cut into triangles
  • White star cut outs or stickers
  • Glue
  • Double sided foam mounting dots
  • Thin elastic
  • Tape
  • Hole punch 
What to do:
Cut your paper plate in half. Use the curve of one half along the straight edge of the other half to make a curve & cut. (see below - that was hard for me to explain)
Paint the paper plate blue (we only painted one side).
Once it's dry, punch a hole on each bottom side. 
Flip your plate over. Using the foam adhesive dots, adhere your triangles to the rim.

Cut a piece of elastic to fit around your child's head. Tape each end through the hole to the back side of the plate.
Decorate the front with white stars.
If using glue, let dry then wear to celebrate!
