June 30th, 2012 22 comments


– (Optional) Go to this link to get the template for the hat piece shapes and PRINT 2 OF THEM:
– 1 or 2 extra pieces of regular printer paper
– Pencil
– Colored penicils (optional)
– Glue
– Tape
– Scissors
– Thin pieces of cardboard
– PATIENCE!!!!!!!!!!

If you have any questions, PLEASE message me and I will answer them!!!

The height of the hat should be about 4.25 inches tall, and the lengh around the hat should be about 25.25 inches around (this does NOT include the lenglth around the bill).
Of course you can change the sizes depending on the size of your head, but do not change them too much, only make it on 1/8 smaller or bigger depending on what will fit you.

Also, you can leave a video response of the hat you made from this tutorial, I would really like to see them!!

If you are nterested, I am selling my paper model of the White DC New Era Hat on Etsy.
