Art Project Tutorial:

Step 1

Draw the outline shape for your hat. This is just freehand but if you need you can find lots of template online.

Step 2

Decorate your hat with glue and glitter. Consider making one part of the hat with a special star or something. Gold foil stickers would look great on these! Let dry.

Step 3

When dry hold two pieces of the hat back to back and staple the edges.

Step 4

Go around the hat stapling the sides of the hat together. You can make it smaller or larger at this point to fit your child’s head.

Step 5

Try on your new tricorn hat and have fun celebrating President’s Day!
