We've all likely worn one of these newspaper hats on our heads at some point in our lives but I thought folks might appreciate a reminder on how they're made.

You can make a matching hat for your dolls with a sheet of printer paper (you can color the paper before you make the hat, if you like).



  • Fold the paper (or the 1/2 sheet of newspaper) in half

  • Fold down each side to make triangles

  • Fold one bottom flaps up.
  • Flip the hat over and fold the other bottom flap up.
  • add a bit of scotch tape if you like
