How To Make A Flowers & Hearts Hat For Your Cat
How To Make A Flowers & Hearts Hat For Your Cat. Print out the template and lay over your chosen cat had paper or cardboard. Trace the template and cut it out. When cutting out, leave 0.5cm over the edge as a glue flap to be able to glue the hat into a cylindrical shape.
Add glue to the flap and glue the hat into a cylinder. Fold the tips of the hat into the centre by gently forming a circular shape with your fingers. To secure the dome shape, sit the hat down on a table top (gently) and drop some hot glue inside to form the dome. Hold it in this position until the glue dries. If you are using hot glue it will only take a minute. Using craft glue will take longer and you may want to use sticky tape.
Cut a piece of your contrasting paper for the ‘hat band’ and attach with glue to the end of your dome.
Cut out the circle for the hat rim and use hot glue or craft glue to attach to the body of the hat. The hat ‘dome’. Once it has dried you can use your fingers or a pencil to roll up the edges of the hat rim for some additional style.
Add your extra decorations such as flowers, hearts or anything else you want. Or, just leave it as is and let your cat be the star of the show!
