Paper Layer Hat
March 20th, 2012 by Craftylocks


A few layers and a little glue create a solid structure – strong enough to support flowers for a Spring bonnet, and hard enough for a dress-up helmet.
You need a bowl for the shape, and then layer up some plain paper and newspaper with some wallpaper paste in between each layer. We used four layers of newspaper and two of plain paper. Shape the layers into a hat shape while they wet.
Add some more strips around the brim of the hat to tidy it up if you wish, then leave it to dry.
Decorate to suit your season or occasion.

so cute – at first glance I thought it was a pie lol – food on the mind – I love your comment as to the versatility of the project “either a bonnet or helmet” – we made a paper machet bowl recently using cupcake wrappers (the British and Aussies call them “pattcakes?”) anyway I have wanted to try a project using them – the bowl came out fine – my son kept insisting it was a “hat” or “helmet” lol take care dawnie and fam
