How Do You Make a Smurf Hat?

To make an easy Smurf hat, simply use a template to cut two pieces out of white felt and sew them together. Alternately, one can use a white beanie hat or even a small white T-shirt to make a hat.

A blue Smurf is an easy costume, especially since most of the pieces are generally convenient to make or find. The white hat, or red for Papa Smurf, is one of the most recognizable pieces of a Smurf's wardrobe.

Step 1: Measure the head's circumference

Use a tape measure to determine the circumference of the head. Add an inch to allow for overlap when sewing the pieces of the hat together.

Step 2: Draw and cut the template

On a plain piece of paper, draw a template for the hat. The shape is a somewhat sloppy triangle with a rounded tip. Divide the circumference from step one in half to determine the proper width for the bottom. Cut the shape to form the template.

Step 3: Cut the hat out of the chosen material

The material for the Smurf hat can be anything from cotton to wool, but felt will hold the shape best. Fold the material in half and pin the template to the material. Carefully cut around the template with a pair of scissors.

Step 4: Sew the hat

Pin the two pieces of the hat together. Sew the edges either by hand or by using a sewing machine. Stuff it with tissue paper so the hat keeps its shape.
