  • 1 piece 12" x 8" White Construction Paper
  • 1/4 inch Ribbon cut to size
  • 1 pair Scissors
  • 1 Stapler


  • Take a large piece of construction paper and cut following the picture of Pilgrim bonnet template.
  • Fold up the edge without the cuts 2 inches. This will be the bonnet brim when finished.
  • Next, fold the side with the cuts. Fold the middle piece down and bring the sides to the middle. Staple at the top and bottom or run a piece of tape up the back.
  • Cut the ribbon to the size of the individual wearing the bonnet. Tape or staple a piece of ribbon underneath the fold on the front on each side, making the ties.
  • Now we have some adorable Pilgrims!
