Pilgrim Hat to make for Thanksgiving

Pilgrim Hat to make for Thanksgiving

Holiday Crafts > Thanksgiving

This is a very easy pilgrim hat project.  Kids just need a little help and then they can play Pilgrim for Thanksgiving.


  • Paper plate
  • Grey or grey-blue construction paper (2)
  • Black construction paper (1)
  • Gold or orange construction paper - small scrap
  • Tape
  • Stapler
  • Scissors
What To Do:
  1. Cut out center of paper plate.  Brim can be painted or left as is.
  2. Along one of the lengthwise edges (11 in side) of each grey piece of construction paper, make 1 inch cuts (about 3/4 inches apart) along the whole edge.  Cuts can be made a tiny bit shorter towards the center so that the pieces will curve inward slightly.
  3. Bend these tabs forward and then tape to the underside of the paper plate (brim of hat).  Try to tape the outer tabs so that they are a little longer than the center tabs.  This will make you hat taper in like a pilgrim's hat should.
  4. After adding the back section, which will overlap, staple sides together at top of hat.
  5. Cut two 1 1/2 inch strips of black paper.   Tape or glue one piece in place, as shown, and then tape the other piece, overlapping the first.
  6. Cut a small buckle and then glue in place.
