The Disney animated character Goofy, described as "good-natured but not that bright," by the Disney online archives, first appeared in 1932, "somewhat disguised, as a member of the audience in 'Mickey's Revue.'" Wearing a Goofy hat is one way to get noticed and feel like a kid again, not to mention a sure-fire way to create a homage to one of Walt Disney's most beloved cartoon characters. However, you need not pay through the nose at expensive Disney merchandise boutiques to get a hat similar to Goofy's. You can make an impressive version out of foam and just a few other materials.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Wrap a sheet of foam around your head, placing the foam upright just above your eyebrows. The foam should stick straight up like a cylinder around your head. Slide it off your head very carefully without losing its formation. Staple it in place. This will be the top part of Goofy's hat.

  2. 2

    Cut two ovals out of the black foam paper. Make your ovals around 8 to 9 inches long. Staple one on the interior of your cylinder. Make sure that they are directly across from each other. These are Goofy's ears.

  3. 3

    Draw a circle on your other sheet of green foam with a diameter that is exactly the same as the diameter of your cylinder. Draw another circle around the first one but give it a diameter that is 4 inches larger. Cut out the larger circle. Cut out the interior of the smaller circle. This is the brim of Goofy's top hat.

  4. 4

    Slide the brim of the top hat onto the bottom of the cylinder. Add a few drops of glue around the interior of the brim to attach it to the cylinder. Press the brim to the cylinder of the hat firmly.
