As part of a costume, dress up play or just for fun - we've got you covered with this knight helmet made from cardboard!
- Paper Fasteners (2)
Step 1: Cut a strip of cardboard for the main portion of the knight helmet. It will need to fit from the shoulders to just above the head and loosely around.
Step 2: Draw a tall half circle in the center and cut out. This will be the opening for the face.
Step 3: Gently bend the cardboard creating a slight bend between the ridges so it will be easier to make into a circle.
Step 4: Staple the ends of the cardboard together to create a band. (We recommend this step for adults.)
Step 5: Cut a pointed portion from cardboard to fit on the top of the helmet and a large half circle that fits across the opening in the band (our measurement was approximately 5 inches tall by 16.5 inches wide).
Step 6: Paint the three pieces gray and allow to dry.
Step 7: Paint additional details if you'd like.
Step 8: Glue the pointed cardboard piece to the top of the band.
Step 9: Punch a hole in each end of the long half circle piece and attach on each side to the band.
Step 10: From cardboard, cut a feather shape.
Step 11: Paint the feather and allow to dry.
Step 12: Attach the feather to the top of the helmet with glue or an additional paper fastener.
A completely recycled costume just needs a cardboard shield or sword and your little knight is all set!
