Duct Tape Hat




Introduction: Duct Tape Hat

A simple step by step on how to create a Duct Tape hat.

This is my first instructable =) Thanks to my friend who taught me how to do this.

Step 1: Stuff You Need

To make a duct tape hat you will need:

A hat you don't want anymore (sorry fans!)
A roll of duct tape
Scissors (optional)

Step 2: Wrap the Brim in Duct Tape

Pretty Easy, just wrap the hat's brim in duct tape.

You can use scissors to trim off the edges too.

Step 3: Wrap the Front and the Sides of the Hat in Duct Tape

First, you'll want to wrap the front, again pretty easy.

Second, Wrap both sides to the adjustable snap (plastic thing on back) You don't want to cover it, otherwise you won't be able to adjust it.

Step 4: Almost Finished!

Take a strip of duct tape and put in on the back.
Then do the same things on the front and sides.

Step 5: Final Touches

All you have to do now is cover up the rest of the hat with your duct tape.

Step 6: Finished!

You're done! Wear your hat with pride!

    You just covered a hat in duct tape!

    lesson be learned is that it is not a duct tape hat unless it is only duct tape. no cardboard, no other hat, and no string. just duct tape. i actually have a pretty cool instructable. however i do like the way your end product hat looks

    Wow not this duct tape baseball cap is awesome. Me wanty.

    Duct tape hat only found at:


    Sponsored by? You guessed it the company... kewl.

    Regarding this instructible method...(I like it btw as it looks easier than the Duck Tape site)... Like packing tape body casting, There should be a way to wrap the first layer sticky side up and even using a glue stick to keep the inverted duct tape temporarily in place, once the first layer is completed, then it would just be layering the sticky side down on the 2nd layer and peel the final off the hat etc... someone mentioned tin foil, if you went the route of tin foil that might work well too, then just cover the tin foil on the inside of the hat with a layer of tape... hmmmmmm

    ohh i bought one exact same thingon tapedcoats.zxq.net exept it was pure duct tape.by the way, how long did this take?

    Lol i made this at school once for a field trip on a rainy day, took me 10 minutes and looked good, lasted me the next 2 months. They don't have to be as sturdy as other items, but make sure to not have any end going into the hat insides, or else it will stick to your hair more.

    Gaffar tape is duct tape. Gaffer tape is super premium duct tape. :)

    duck tape war in the red corner gaffer tape n the blue duck tape who will win...im wit the gaffer lol

    The war consists of hanging equal weights from a strip of duct and gaffer each,the weight falling to t3h floor first will make that tape lose

    you could just cover the hat with aluninum foil so you don't ruin the hat

    My next Instructable shall be a How-to for a Solid Duct Tape Hat. It only uses the bill from another hat. sounds like cheating but I did not want to make a bill that was plain wrong. Watch out for my DT Hat and DT belt tutorials that will show up soon.
