We built our hats in three stages: structure, applicay, and paint. It was fun experimenting with the different materials in order to create unique hats. Students used three pieces in order to form their hats. They chose from paper plates, bowls, and cups. What resulted was a diverse set of unique and original designs. Adding tissue paper streamers, stripes, and textures took the hats to the next level. Topping it all off with some day glo paint was just what the hats needed to stand out and be noticed.
But first we made some sketches and brainstormed how these hats might look:
