Halloween is such a fun time for so many. Our creative juices begin to flow as we think of how to construct costumes for kids and even ourselves. This brain hat is one inspiring pinterest pin we thought would be a lot of fun to make and not to mention simple!!
a hat you don’t repurposing. Cut the Bill of the hat off. Place over a bowl or ball to hold the shape of the hat.
Pain the hat with red acrylic paint. I used a sponge brush and it painted and dried quickly.
Once the pain is fully dried use caulking (non Silicone as it needs to be pain-table) to make brain-like squiggles in each of the brain’s hemispheres.
Once the Caulking is dry (around 24 hours) attach gauze around the base of the hat. I used spray adhesive
($3 a can at Walmart).
Mix Red and Black Acrylic paint with water (50/50) and paint the blood onto the brain and gauze.
This hat was a lot of fun to make
and my kids really got a kick out it. It is also pretty impressive and doesn’t hold that home-crafted appearance.
Just be sure to allow a couple of days for all the drying time. This is not a last minute costume but certainly an affordable one!
**Special Tools: You will need a caulking gun for this project.
