Cork hat craft

Cork hat craft

Kids love to dress up – and they like making their very own homemade dress-ups even more. Make this very Australian themed hat with your kids.

What you need:

  • Sheet of cardboard
  • Glue or tape
  • String
  • Corks

Number of players:


On the cardboard, trace around a bowl or plate that is just big enought to comfortably sit on your head. Cut the circle out.

Trace around the bowl or plate again. Then draw another circle around this circle that is about 8cm bigger. Cut out the inner circle and then cut out the larger circle so that you have a cuff that can be the brim of your hat.

Measure the circumference of your head and then cut a strip of cardboard to match this length that is 10cm wide. Mark tabs along each side of the strip. Cut out. Bend the tabs outwards on one side of the strip and the tabs on the other side inwards.

To assemble the hat, tape the strip of cardboard together so it makes a loop. Tape the outwards tabs to the underside of the brim, and then tape the inwards tabs to the top of the hat.

Count how many corks you have and then punch the same number of holes around the brim of the hat.

Tie string around each cork and then attach each cork to the hat.
