  • Step 1Using a ruler, make a line across the bottom of a piece of cardboard.This will be your hat band. Sketch a sun design in the centre of your hat band. Look to our design for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 2Cut around your sunshine hat and then attach felt pieces with glue. Allow to dry.
  • You might like to glue the felt on to the hat and then trim it to shape after.
  • Step 4Measure your hat on your head and then staple some elastic to each end of the band.
  • You could also glue the hat ends together without adding elastic.
