HOW TO MAKE A NEWSPAPER HAT 

It was Earth day at Princess Z’s school and we (parents) had to make a costume or accessorize them with any recycled material and be creative.I was looking for something that would be creative and served a purpose at the same time.I did my part of research and came  across different ways of recycling newspaper.I found many ways but the thing I decided to go  with was a Newspaper Hat. Here’s how we made a Newspaper Hat by recycling the daily newspaper.

You will need:

Newspapers
Tape
Scissors
Any accessories (like flowers,buttons…) to glue to the hat. (Optional)

Steps:

1.The most important step is to take the right fitting measurements…so do to that make your child sit down,place newspapers sheets on her head…and mold them on the circumference of the head as shown in the picture below👇🏻

2.Once you have the perfect size… tape around adding layers of newspapers (as many as you like) (I prefer 5 to 6 layers)

*This part is a little tricky…keep adding layers, until your satisfied.

3.Once you have your layered hat, remove and cut out the extra edges and accessories as you like.

I added flowers made from wool and glue them on the  on the taped side making it  look more neat.

Cutting out the extra newspaper will give you layers…making it look more fancy

This is the easier and most useful way of recycling newspaper.These hats can be accessorized in many ways and can be used in parties,recycling day or even in the daily life.
