Making of Homemade Hat

Homemade Hat

Homemade Hat

Materials needed:

1) Poster board,
2) Pair of compasses (the one in your geometry box)
3) Scissors
4) Craft knife
5) Cutting mat
6) Stapler
7) Paper adhesive


  1. On a poster board sheet, draw a circle large enough for the brim of the hat.
  2. Cut out the circle finely using scissors. Trim the rough edges for a smooth finish.
  3. Inside this circle, draw a second circle shape (large enough to fit the wearer's head). Cut it out using the craft knife.
  4. Measure the diameter of the brim. Cut another circle of the poster board measuring about 6 inches larger for the crown.
  5. Place the needle of the compass along the scale of the ruler. Drag the pencil 3 inches away from the needle.
  6. Now pin the needle. Draw the 6 inches diameter circle by rotating the pencil.
  7. Cut a slit from the edge into the center, after folding this circle into a cone shape to fit inside the brim. Staple the cone in position where the cut ends of the poster board overlaps.
  8. Tape the cone to the brim on the inside.
