How to make a Duct Tape Helmet

This instructable is going to teach you how you can make your very own duct tape helmet! This is part of my ‘How to Make Duct Tape Armor’ series of instructables. All you need to make a duct tape helmet is:
-Duct Tape
-Tin Foil
-Scissors and/or A knife
-Imagination
So why don’t we get started then?

NOTE: This is not a real helmet! It will not save your life or anything. It is to be used for fun only; like for halloween.

Step 1: Tin Foiling Your Face

Take some tin foil, about arms length, and start folding long ways, until you have enough that will cover your face. Now, carefully, place the tin foil over your face, and make a cast. Push carefully, because you don’t want to be cut by tin foil! Once you have a cast of your face, cut any excess tin foil on the edges, and then cut out the areas where your eyes would be, and also make a small hole or slit over where your nasal holes (Nose) are. Put the tin foil over your face again and make sure you have gotten the areas right.

Step 2: Duct Taping Your Face

Now that you have your case of your face, it’s time to duct tape it. I highly recommend using small pieces (2x3 or whatever) instead of long pieces of tape, so that you don’t mess up. Don’t worry; you can make it look better later.

Start placing pieces of tape around the edges of the face first, and then the eyes and nose holes. Now just tape the outside, then the inside. If you have done right, your face should be duct tapeified!

I made a mouth hole when I was making my face. You don’t have to do this, because once your done, it will be easier to make the face however you want (You’ll understand what I mean later) I duct taped the mouth over.

If you want to, do a little bit more cutting, until you’re comfortable with your (Not quite finished) Design.
