Tim the Enchanter Hat with Real Ram Horns

This instructable documents my take on how to make a realistic Tim the Enchanter hat, as seen in the all-time-great movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  Tim is the "horny" Scottish wizard who enjoys randomly blowing up trees and eventually introduces King Arthur and his knights to the killer rabbit.  Definitely a worthy character for a Halloween costume, and the hat is without doubt the most important component!

This is inspired! Great work. LOVE IT!
I hadn't figured out yet how to stabilize the horns for the pattern my grandson came up with. Thank you for having already solved that problem. We also hadn't considered using real ram's horns, but I think I will try to find some and surprise him with the real thing.
All else you need is some coconuts and pigeons! Well done, you have my vote.
Haha yeah, Thanks for the coment!
