What You’ll Need
- Pencil (or pen)
- Glue stick
- Glue gun or liquid glue
- X-Acto Knife
- Bone Folder (not necessary but useful)
- Start by making a cylinder. Adjust the width and height to your preference, but a marching band hat should be fairly tall. Glue a thin band around the top and bottom.
- To form the top of your hat, glue the cylinder down to a piece of paper the same colour as your bands.
- Once dry, trim the excess paper. Next, flip the hat over and glue it onto a piece of paper. This can be whatever colour you choose.
- Once dry, trim the excess, leaving a half a circle in front for the hat’s brim.
Finishing Touch: Add a feather and a fancy emblem to the front and you’re ready to start your own marching band!
