Full Answer

  1. Cut the paper to the required size

    Measure and cut a piece of newspaper to 8 1/2 by 11 inches. You can also use a regular piece of printer paper or a sheet of paper already cut to the right size.

  2. Lay out the paper

    Lay the paper on a flat surface so that the long end is horizontal.

  3. Fold the paper

    Start by folding the left corner of the paper down so that it reaches the midpoint of the long side, which is 5 1/2 inches in from the end. Repeat the process with the right corner. Crease the bottom 2 inches of the paper up so that it covers the folded edges, and tape it in place. Fold the bottom edges into triangles, and pull them back behind the paper. Tape them together. Finally, take the triangle point at the top of the paper, pull it down to the folded edge at the bottom, and fasten it with tape.

  4. Secure the hat

    Pin the hat into place using bobby pins.
