NEWSPAPER HAT

Materials: Old newspapers and colored craft papers

1) I used this simple, step by step origami guide to create beautiful newspaper hat by Kristi (http://headstylelove.com/a-guide-to-a-beautiful-paper-hat/)
2) Then, I decorated my newspaper hat with some art work (top tassel, craft paper quills and Halloween bat) made with colored craft papers. See the attached images for creating the top tassel, craft paper quills and Halloween bat.
3) Arrange and stick the decorative objects using glue and adhesive tape.

PAPER GLASSES AND MUSTACHE

Materials: Cardboard, Colored Craft Paper, Glue

1) Draw your favorite shape/design glasses on a cardboard and cut the shape as shown in the image.
2) If you like a particular color you can use the cardboard glasses cut in Step 1 as a stencil and cut the same shape on a colored craft paper as shown in the images
3) Stick the colored craft paper on the cardboard cut in the shape of glasses
4) Similarly, cut your favorite mustache shape on a piece of colored craft paper

You can try different colors, I used yellow since it is bright and was providing a contrast.
