Make-a-Pilgrim-HatIt’s craft time! :) Exciting, yes?

Pilgrim-Hat-2Thanksgiving is coming up – it’s a little over two weeks away! Pretty crazy. And, of course, no holiday is ever complete without some way to spread festive cheer. This pilgrim hat is so easy to make, and it’s the perfect size to fit American Girl pets or other stuffed animals. With the help of household supplies you’re bound to have around, your favorite stuffed friends can be Thanksgiving ready instantly. Feel free to experiment too; how adorable would a matching bonnet be?

Pilgrim-Hat-InstructionsTO MAKE

  1. Cut off a piece of your cardboard tube. The size will depend on the stuffed animal you are using it for. Ours was a little over one and a half inches tall for Coconut.
  2. Next, fold in the sides like shown, and glue the two folded sides together.
  3. Trace piece of black foam to fit both sides of the cardboard, and glue them on.
  4. Cut a long strip of white construction paper, and wrap and glue it around the base of the hat. Trim if needed.
  5. Cut out a small square of yellow constriction paper. Fold it in half, and cut out a rectangle, so that it has an opening in the middle. Glue to the center of the hat.
  6. Cut out an oval of black foam to act as the base of the hat.
  7. Glue the hat to the base, and let dry.
  8. Finally, attach a piece of ribbon to the bottom of the hat with tape or glue. You can use the ribbon to tie the hat to your stuffed animal!
