Paper Plate Craft | Patriotic Hat

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

My daughter loves to dress for any occasion. This red, white & blue paper plate hat is perfect to craft up for some patriotic holidays!

What to do:
Cut your paper plate in half. Use the curve of one half along the straight edge of the other half to make a curve & cut. (see below - that was hard for me to explain)
Paint the paper plate blue (we only painted one side).
Once it's dry, punch a hole on each bottom side. 

Flip your plate over. Using the foam adhesive dots, adhere your triangles to the rim.

Cut a piece of elastic to fit around your child's head. Tape each end through the hole to the back side of the plate.

Decorate the front with white stars.

If using glue, let dry then wear to celebrate!

Need a better visual? My daughter made a YouTube video showing you exactly what to do.
