  • Chiffon material
  • Stapler

2. Staple the ends of the construction paper to the hat all down the length of the hat.

3. Tape the staples inside the hat to prevent it form scratching the child and catching on the chiffon material when you thread it through.

4. Cut the chiffon material to the length you want to drape down the hat.
