Step 1: Materials

for this instructable you will need:

1) my newspaper hat (which you can find out how to make here
https://www.instructables.com/id/Newspaper-Hat!/ )
2) duct tape
3) cardboard or paperboard (i used a coke fridge pack)
4) scissors
5) sharpie

if you have these materials you are ready to go!

Step 2: Top

first step to making my duct tape hat, is to cover the top and sides with duct tape. first make one strip, then cover the rest of the top and sides like follows...

Step 3: Front and Back

the next step is to cover the front and back. first tape a strip towards the top, then one covering the bottom.

Step 4: Repeat

repeat step 3 on the other side

Step 5: Now for the Bill

now we make the bill, get out your cardboard! first put your hat on the cardboard, and draw a rough outline of the bill with the sharpie. Next cut out the bill and make sure it looks good with the hat.

Step 6: Cover the Bill

now its time to cover the bill in duct tape! Okay, first take strips of duct tape and just cover one side of the bill, dont worry if its not neat, its not supposed to be. then do the same on the other side, then trim the excess.

Step 7: Assembly

this step is pretty simple, all you have to do is use more duct tape to connect the bill to the hat, then if it doesnt go straight out, just use common sense to figure how much tape and where to put it to get it to.

Step 8: Show Off Your Style

now wear it and show everyone your awesomeness!

    That's bull! One, the so-called "chemicals" in the tape are non-existent. With Duck brand duct tape, they use natural glues. Two, you wouldn't stick the hat to your head. You would get rid of the stickiness. Finally, I'd hate to burst your bubble, but it sounds like you made that up to look cool.

    Because buttons are awesome and you always have to press a red button if you see one.Especially if it's shiny.


    Duct tape has no bad chemicals in it, but since it would be rubbing against your skin right after you made it, it could have that irritating glow about it that happens right after you make something with it. Also do not make low hats as the duct tape smells funny, and the more colored duct tapes smell stranger. Camouflage is the strangest...
