DLTK's Holiday Crafts for Kids
Thanksgiving Crown or Hat

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

A simple construction paper 'hat' the kids have fun making, decorating and wearing!  We like making tissue paper flowers to decorate it, but you can use markers, stickers, glitter or gel pens instead.


  • brown, orange, yellow or red construction paper.
  • 2 pipe cleaners
  • pencil,
  • scissors,
  • tape,
  • printer,
  • paper,
  • tissue paper (we used orange, yellow and red -- but you can use any combination of autumn colors you like)
  • thread (we used brown).
  • Optional:  stickers, markers, glitter or gel pens to decorate


  • Wrap the pipecleaner around a pencil to make a 'spring' with it.  An adult can wrap the first couple loops and then hand it over to the child to finish.
  • Straighten about 1/2 inch of the top and bottom of the spring (so it's easier to do the taping).
  • Repeat with the other pipecleaner.
