How to create a Duct Tape hat out of, you guessed it, Duct Tape! Using only Duct Tape, Tin Foil, Scissors, X-acto blade or knife, a marker, and a hat, you too can have a hat made out of that wonderful product, Duct Tape!

Step 1: Supplies & Getting Ready

Supplies that you will need include:
Duct Tape
A Hat
A pair of Scissors and a knife
A roll of Tin Foil
a Marker (Washable, and very light color

Make your workspace clear and free of things such as lint or eraser bits. You will need some room. Set down a thing of newspapers so that you don't cut your surface or anything.

Don't cut yourself. Ever. EVAR! Simple enough. If you cut your finger off, it's your own fault.
Why would you use a hat to make a hat?
Nice job, now I can wrap it up with some cheap faux leather and... LISTO!
Pretty nice hat... But the design can be improved... how about using different colored tape for stylish designs?<br><br>I also found this website, http://tapedcoats.zxq.net/ , that sells awesome duct tape products.. You've never seen anything like this, check them out!
a store round here sells 24&quot;X24&quot; duck tape patches. could be a better starting material.<br />
Wow really??? where???
if you know ocean state job lot that's where I've seen it.
nice tutorial. how long did it take tyou to make these? how many rolls? btw i found a similar thing on tapedcoats.zxq.net
Two things, one there is a really good pic. sequence for making a duct tape sheet on the duct tape book cover instructable. Second, besides looking cool, yes I think duct tape hats are cool, why would you need a duct tape hat if you have a hat already?
Well you see... um.. herm... uh, yeah... ur.... LOOK BEHIND YOU! *Run away*
*Chase down* *Tie with duct tape from hat*<br/>
Haha *Pokes duct taped Wills42 with a pointy stick* :P<br/>
Just poking, where's your duct tape spirit.
Its... Uh... LOOK HES GETTING AWAY! *Duct tapes lobo_pal to Wills42* <br/><br/>...<br/><br/>*Pokes some more*<br/>
*Uses telekinesis to throw cornflaker into the wall, and free himself. Keeps hitting against the wall with mind power*
*Uses pyrokinesis to thwart lobo_pal's plan, accidently melts all of the duct tape... :(* *Pokes some more with now burning stick*
*Uses cryokinesis to stop the fire and freeze everyone else in the room. Pokes with stick and accidentally shatters them, oops*
*Remains un-shattered waiting for the lobo_pal's cryokinesis outburst to end hoping he forgets to poke me* *Wonders if lobo_pal will use his new ability to bring the duct tape back*
*Wraps cornflaker in duct tape to make a full body cast, then keeps wrapping until it is a duct tape coffin. Then buries cornflake.
*Reluctantly uses pyrokinesis again to completely melt the duct tape coffin, then realises lobopal was using cryokinesis not chronokinesis...* *Uses chronokinesis to go back before lobo_pal gets away... Grabs a bigger stick on the way...*
*Unfortunately doesn't realize that chronokinesis ripped the dimension, and caused a black hole to appear near Earth, everyone dies.*
*A piece of duct tape blocks the black hole and prevents the rest of the universe from being sucked in... Hurray For Duct Tape! :D ... Hmm you know this white nothingness isn't tooo bad...*

airzooka?!?!?ha ha good memories.....
I "made" a hat similar to this with a cardboard New Year's hat. I re-sized it to fit my head more comfortably, and made a design out of the tape. Over the year and a half I've had it, I've been adding stuff to it. It now has a face and a light up bow tie on it. I wish I had a camera so I could upload a picture.
<em>Nice</em> hat. I'm wearing mine now. :)<br/>Had to delay making it half way through because i ran out of tape. Cheap Poundworld duct tape comes on really tiny rolls.<br/>
Any thoughts on how to make a duct tape whip to go with it? That would be awesome!
Whipping is my specialty. (inside joke with thedude123) Anyway, Just take about a 5 foot long piece of duct tape, and fold it. Then take it and twist it, then more tape. I can't explain it, I'll make an I'ble.
Thanks! I look forward to it!
I made one of these for Live action role playing, and i was able to fit 9 throwing daggers, a small grapnel, and 4 packs of gum in there. Also got in a "wand" and a belt that slid out of the part where my head went, it was used to tighten it on. It looked just a bit bigger than this.
