Need to come up with a fancy hat right away, say a fruit or a vegetable one? Here's a fast, green and economical option: start by folding a paper boat.
(For Part I of this post that featured a watermelon, pineapple, corn and a leafy veg hat, click here.)
Now you are ready to create as many fruit and veggies hats you can think of.
You only need your imagination along with some crepe, tissue or multi-colored papers to dress up your hat and rise to the occasion. Here is an example on how to decorate a tomato hat.
(1) To put a fruit stem, roll a green paper, make several cuts from one end to make flaps to glue on the top of the hat.
(2) Glue the crepe paper from the inside of the rim.
(3) Cover the whole hat with the crepe paper, fold excess paper in and glue at the root of the stem.
(4) Cut sepals from green paper and attach.
Modify color of hat and stem, size and shape of sepal or leaf to come up with various fruit and veggies hat. Here are some ideas for inspiration:
