One black, white or grey poster board, scissors, stapler, glue, clear tape, ruler or measuring tape
Cut a circle that’s about 14” in diameter (wide). Tip: For a more realistic look, make all the circles ovals.
Centered inside the oval, cut a circle that’s 10” in diameter. Remove the middle circle, and set it aside. It will be the top of the hat. What’s left is the hat brim.
Cut out a rectangle that is 31” long and 6” high.
Roll the rectangle to match side edges, and allow them to overlap by ½ inch. Glue them in place, and add a couple of staples for stability.
Stand the cylinder inside the brim, and tape it in place. Turn the hat over, and tape the underside too.
Tape the top “lid” in place.
Add a coat and bow tie to finish puttin’ on the ritz.
