Step 1: Cut Hole

Using a scissor, cut a 3/4 in. hole at the top corner of the hat. Mimic what is being done in the picture or poke a hole where ever you want to start off your design. Poking this hole will help conceal the start of the wire and allow the output wires to be concealed inside the hat.
