Duck Tape® Santa Hat
- Duck Tape- Red (1 Roll) and White (1 Roll)
- Fabric- 24”x14”
- Styrofoam Ball- Small
- X-Acto Knife
- Hot Glue Gun or Super Glue
- Cutting Board
- Pencil or Pen
Cut 2 pieces of fabric in the shape of triangles measuring 14 inches up both sides and 12 inches across the bottom.
Cover each piece in red tape.
Lay the pieces on top of each other and tape them together up each side.
Lay out a strip of white duct tape 12 inches long sticky side up on your cutting board. Tear off another strip of white tape 12 inches long and stick it to the one on your cutting board. Make sure not to place it directly on top of the piece on the cutting board, rather leave about a
centimeter of stickiness on either side.
Using an X-Acto knife cut off one of the sticky sides right at the edge. Save this piece.
Cut slits in the tape to create a fringe effect.
Take the thin strip of tape you cut with the X-Acto blade and place that sticky side up on the cutting board.
Now lay your fringe on it so it’s just touching the edge of the fringe. Now fold the fringe in half so that you have a row of loops. Leave enough stickiness at the top of the fringe to stick to the hat.
Stick your first row of loops to the bottom of one side of the hat. Repeat 5 more times so that you have 3 loops of fringe on either side.
Lay out a strip of white tape about 12-14 inches long and cut it into small squares. Cover the Small Foam Ball in the tape pieces. Roll the ball around on table so the tape crinkles a little as you go. You can also make dents in it with your finger.
Take a ballpoint pen or pencil and push it through the ball being careful not to push all the way through the ball.
Using a hot glue gun or super glue, put a small amount of glue into the hole in the ball and then place the ball on the point of the hat.
Wait until the glue dries to wear the hat.
