To make a birthday hat, draw a semicircle on construction paper, cut it out, then align the straight edges together (overlapping slightly) to make a cone-shaped hat. Glue or staple the edges together, and decorate the hat with paper circles or other birthday decorations.Continue Reading
You need construction paper, white glue, scissors, a pencil, a stapler, a ruler and a compass.
Sketch a semicircle on a piece of construction paper, using a compass. For a birthday hat, an 8-inch radius should be sufficient. Cut out the semicircle, and bring the two straight edges together to form a cone. Try on the hat, adjusting the overlap of the edges to fit, then staple to hold it together.
Apply glue to the straight edges, and remove the staple when the glue is dry. Decorate the hat with pictures or construction paper cutouts.
