How to Make Robin Hood Hats

To dress up as Robin Hood for Halloween or a costume party you are attending, it is important to include everything in the costume, even the hat. Robin Hood's hat -- the famous green, pointy cap that he wears with the feather on the side -- is as important to the whole Robin Hood costume as any other accessory, and, luckily, it is not difficult to construct if you have the appropriate materials.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Cut a semicircle of green felt, approximately 24 inches in diameter.

  2. 2

    Fold the semicircle in half so that it forms a smaller cone shape with a rounded bottom.

  3. 3

    Sew the edges of the two straight sides together that you have folded over so that the cone shape stays in place.

  4. 4

    Fold up the bottoms of the cone shape to the desired position to create the signature folds of the Robin Hood hat. Sew a few stitches in each fold to keep the material from falling back down.

  5. 5

    Glue your feather to the side of the hat. Stick a very small amount of glue onto the stem of the feather and hold it tightly in place on the side of the hat for about 5 to10 minutes to secure it.
