Sophie finishes up her three part tutorial demonstrating how to make a duct tape hat by adding a top and some embellishments.
Cut the piece of fabric out. This will be the top of your hat. Lay it on top of the visor as shown.
Just as we did in Part Two, you will need a lot of small pieces of tape. Both 2"x1/2" and 1"x1/2". I suggest you make 50 or 60 small pieces before beginning. Begin by taping the topper to the visor on the underside of the hat. Place 2"x1/2 " pieces long-wise on the inside seam.
Once the underside is secure flip the hat over and secure the topper to the top of the hat using 1"x1/2" pieces in the same manner you did in Part Two.
Place the small pieces all the way around to secure the top to the visor and cover all the sticky spots.
Lay your hat onto the sticker and carefully trace the top of the hat onto the sticker. You can trace a bit wider than the hat to avoid getting ink on your hat.
Cut out the sticker. You may need to trim it a bit to make it fit. Once it is properly sized peel one sticker off and place it on the underside of the hat.
Peel the other side of the sticker and place it on the top. This will seal all of the tape and give you a nice clean look. You are all done! Now you can embellish and start wearing your hat.
