Argh,  Matey! Learn how to create your own newspaper pirate hat in a few simple folds!





Materials You’ll Need

  • Newspaper
  • Scotch Tape
  • Black Marker






Step 1: Fold in Half 


Need a last minute project for your little pirate? A newspaper pirate hate is super simple and takes no time at all! To begin, lay out your newspaper flat, and fold down and in half.



Step 2: Fold Top to Point


Starting at the creased top section, fold each side down into a triangle point similar to making a paper airplane. Once folded, use scotch tape to tape these sections down for added stability and structure.



Step 3: Fold Brim


Next, carefully separate the bottom section of the newspaper and fold the top half up into a rectangular shape beneath the folded triangle. Turn newspaper over and repeat. This will create the brim of the hat.



Step 3: Draw Crossbones & Play!


Using a black marker draw the universal symbol for pirates, a skull and crossbones! Carefully open the hat at the bottom and your pirate hat is ready to go! Argh!
