Sequins or stickers
Click on Printables and print out the patterns.
Cut a long thin strip of card. Measure it to the circumference of your child's head and staple it together.
Fold your black piece of card in half. Then cut out the shape of the pirate hat.
Trace a jolly roger outline onto a piece of thin white foam or cardboard.
Carefully cut out and stick to the front of the hat. Alternatively, cut out the jolly roger shapes in the free printable project sheet and stick them directly on.
Tape on some colourful feathers and stick on some sequins or stickers to form a contrasting border.
Staple the black hat to the headband you created in step one.
