Choose one top and one bottom template from our collection of printable hat templates. Print out your chosen templates on A4 or Letter size heavy card stock.
Before gluing the top and bottom templates together, it's best to test if the two pieces fit well. Insert the upper portion of the top template through the slit on the brim. Ease the brim further down until the slit touches the top edge of the bands. If the templates do not fit well, slightly widen the slit.
To make texture rubbings, print out the hat template on plain paper and place the paper over a textured surface such as sand paper or a woven placemat. Rub over the paper with crayon held at a slanted position. To make the hat sturdier, you can glue the paper onto cardstock before cutting out the template pieces.
