oh and i almost forgot about duct tape.

now the tools your gonna need (if any you really shouldn't need anything but the tape) is scissors

Step 2: The headband

Picture of the headband
now first step is to make a piece of duct tape felt (or duct tape cloth ,duct tape strip etc.) that is as long as the circumference of your head.
an easy way to do this is to take a strip of duct tape and fold it on itself the see how far that reaches around your head. then once you have that one to your circumference add strips to the bottom of it until it reaches your ears. before we connect the two ends of felt together cut the felt to the size you deem appropriate for your head. once your satisfied you can tape the two ends together.

Step 3: The basic hat

now that we have finished the basic structure of our hat need to add a top to it. first place place your duct tape headband on to the floor in an oval position. now precede to start adding strips of duct tape over the top of the hat until completely covered. now flip the hat over and apply strips of duct tape to the sticky side in side the hat. once completely covered we have finished the basic hat.

Great Instructable!

honestly that was the reason i created this instructable. i was tired of seeing hats that contained cardboard or the worst- another hat. this is just the style i figured out.
I know what you mean. Why would I take a perfectly good boonie hat and cover it w/ duct tape? I could understand a torn one, but unused is just silly.
