FANCY TISSUE PAPER BONNET
Have the child sit to be “fitted” for their bonnet. To form the hat’s crown, place three pieces of 25 to 30-inch wrapping paper and/or colourful tissue paper on child’s head. Newspaper works fine too. Make sure the right side of the bottom paper faces down, so the underside of the hat will have colour/pattern too. For a taller hat, place a rolled newspaper ball on child’s head before fashioning bonnet.
Arrange the papers at different angles so the paper points are fanned out in different directions. Wrap masking tape around the child’s head a couple of times at approximately ear level. Next, trim or roll the newspaper up to form the hat brim.
For a derby hat, roll to within an inch or two from the band and add a feather. To make a floppy bonnet, glue a ribbon sash over the masking tape band and add silk flowers. For a sombrero, add a fringe of paper or fabric to the edge of the brim.
