DIY Craft: A Tiny Hat

I'm with the band!


What You'll Need

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil (or pen)
  • Glue stick
  • Glue gun or liquid glue
  • X-Acto Knife 
  • Bone Folder (not necessary but useful)


  1. 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.
  2. To form the top of your hat, glue the cylinder down to a piece of paper the same colour as your bands.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
