How to Make a Pirate Hat
These free kids crafts are rather easy to make. Here’s the supplies you’ll require:
Step 1. Download the pirate template of your choice. Here at Dutch Renaissance Press, we chose the legendary Long John Silver Hat.
Step 2. Open the hat image in an image viewing program. We’re on Macs over here, so we’re using Preview.
Step 3. Make sure your computer is connected to a printer. Go to File-> Print. Print 2 copies of the hat onto 8.5 x 11 Letter paper.
Step 4. Cut out the templates.
Step 5. On a larger sheet of paper, cut out two long ribbons of paper, about 2 inches tall. Staple them together to make one even longer ribbon. This will be the pirate hat’s frame.
Step 6. Staple the ribbons into a turban that is the circumference of your child’s head.
Step 7. Staple the cut out pirate hat templates to the frame. Congratulations, the pirate hat is finished!
