Playing Card Hat Mod




this is a hat made almost entirely out of playing cards i built it using instructions from Party top-hat made of playing cards and these worked really well but it was a little uncomfortable and a little big so i edited it by adding an old beanie to it.
for this whole thing you will need 2/3 possibly  packs of cards depending on how big your head is and how tall you want it, a stapler and a lot of staples (would advise not the cheapest stapler as at some points you are stapelling through up to 5 cards an it knackered the cheep stapler i used, and an old beanie.if yo add the beanie in during stage 8ish it works well and keeps your head cool i did think about cutting the top of the beanie so that i could pull it down and pretend it want me if i got embarrassed but i figured that would make the hat unravel and people can get used to me being strange. good luck if you try this and watch out because staples are sharp.

    Interesting Mod! I made these with campers a couple of years ago, ages 7-14 (boys) they adored them!! I know that some of the kids felt like you. I made one using E-6000 which helped with the comfort, the problem of course is that glue stinks, it takes a while to dry and it not kid friendly. This is a great plan! Very nice job!

    Yeah, glue is better, but requires more work, I liked the stapler because it was quick and readily available and with this mod makes it both quick and comfortable.
