    Pilgrim Hat Favors

    Posted by  ·  November 13, 2008

    Pilgrim Hats for favors! I wanted to make something fun for the children’s table at Thanksgiving but I think these would be great party favors for everyone.

    I covered a 9 oz. disposible paper cup with black construction paper. You can see the basic shapes I used in the picture below. The picture shows a black ribbon I was going to use for the band but it wasn’t wide enough. I instead used a piece of brown construction paper cut the same shape as the black but thinner than the buckle. The buckle was a piece of cardstock covered in glitter. Since I knew it would be covered in glitter I didn’t worry about folding the square in half to cut out the center to make it faster and easier.

    I used glue-stick to attach all the pieces except the brim to the cup. Rubberbands helped to hold the main paper part and band to the cup while drying. Once dry, fill the hat with some treats. Hot glue the brim to the hat in just enough spots to keep it on but also allow someone to retrieve their goodies. Add a buckle and you have a Pilgrim Hat favor.

      How perfect! There don't seem to be too many Thanksgiving crafts out there. My daughter and I will definitely make these. And she'll insist we make one for each of her pre-school classmates (fortunately, there's only three others), her teacher, the director, the art teacher...

      Thanks for the inspirations!!
