What You’ll Need for the Paper Plate Tropical Hat Craft:

Follow these simple steps:

Paper Plate Tropical Hat Craft - Paint the Paper Plate1. Paint the paper plate in a nice colour. We used orange because it’s a bright, cheerful colour that goes well with the printable decorations.

Paper Plate Tropical Hat Craft - Hat with Spikes2. Draw four lines on the plate like how you would divide a pizza into eighths, and cut along the lines.

Tip: It may be easier for an adult to cut one line across with a penknife, before the child cuts the rest using a pair of scissors.
