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

  1. Take a large piece of construction paper and cut following the picture of Pilgrim bonnet template.

  2. Fold up the edge without the cuts 2 inches. This will be the bonnet brim when finished.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Now we have some adorable Pilgrims!
