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.
