Hi, this is Ginny with Simply Beautiful Crafts
on behalf of Expert Village and we’re going to make party hats. I’m going to show you
how to make a baseball hat or an engineer’s hat out of newspaper. The first thing you’ll
need is your newspaper base with a relatively shallow bowl. You’re going to take your scissors
and you’re going to cut out around the hat. You’re going to cut the newspaper off leaving
the front so that you can make a bill. You’re going to cut right underneath the masking
tape to about there and then just cut it off. Now you’re going to take your paper from here
and kind of cut a bill shape with it or an engineer shape if you will. Going through
all your layers of paper. And this is going to become a baseball or engineer’s cap by
using masking tape. You’re going to put rows of masking tape all away across your hat.
It’s okay to tape it right on down to the table so that you have some to put underneath
so that you have your hats secured. Once you’ve put your tape all away across from side to
side, you’re going to also want to come here and give it strength this way and then
go ahead and take it off. Flip it over and tuck it under. And then just to secure it
a little bit more you might want to put a little tape here in the back so that you keep
your brim and the inside of your hat doesn’t fall out. Helps if your masking tape is cooperative.
And once you have that done you’re ready to decorate your hat. I’ve decorated my hat with
a little bit of paint, a little bit of glitter and then foam letters, but of course you could
put your favorite sports team on here, you could even cut out something from the newspaper
with your sports team or paint it with stripes, blue and white stripes and you have an engineer
hat. And that’s how you make a baseball cap or an engineer’s hat out of newspaper.
