Step-by-step Instructions to make Cute Pilgrim Hats
First you will download the pdf file. For this you need a pdf reader.
Once you have the file downloaded it is time to print it out. This can be done at home on your printer or at a print shop. For hats I recommend using cardstock paper. However, regular printer paper can work as well it is just not as sturdy.
Using the coloring version just have kids color directly on the printed out paper. Then when they are done coloring cut out the hat shape and long band strips of paper.
If you are tracing the template on to black cardstock paper cut out the outline and use it to trace on the black cardstock or construction paper. To save time you can cut out multiple hat shapes at once. Cut out the shape for the front of the hat and the strips for the back. Use black paper for all of these shapes.
Next trace the buckle shape on gold or yellow paper. The band use a brown or deep red.
Cut out the shapes of the square buckle and the hat band. The buckle is probably the trickiest part of this all because you have to cut out the center part. Kids can cut out the square shapes and have assistance with cutting out the center square.
Now it is time to put it all together. First glue or tape the black front part of the hat on to the straight strip in the center of one of the strips.
Next glue the brown band on the hat just above the bottom portion
That is it, then use these fun hats at your Thanksgiving feast!
