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!
