How to Make a Dr. Seuss Hat with Jumbo Craft Sticks

First, lay out an old newspaper before you get started to protect your work surface.
Next, place 2 craft sticks vertically about two inches apart and carefully hot glue 2 craft sticks horizontally at the bottom.

Cut 1/2″ off each end of 7 craft sticks and carefully hot glue them horizontally onto the 2 vertical craft sticks.

Wrap a tissue paper square around the eraser of the pencil.

Dip that into your Elmer’s glue and place it onto the top of the hat. Repeat this step and make a row of the tissue paper. Each stripe of red will be made with two rows of tissue paper squares (6 rows of tissue paper squares in total).

Leave a craft stick blank in between rows, for the white stripe of the hat.

You can add a string to the top or a magnet to the back to hang your creation for display, if you like.

***To ensure safety, an adult should do the hot gluing!***
