I needed an alien! It needed to be minimal and yet should be fun and easy to recognize. I wanted it to be cheap and wanted it to be easy to put on and take off. Last summer at a local kids music festival I saw kids running around in these cool paper bag hats. I didn’t know how I would incorporate the idea but I took pictures and kept the idea in my head. When I realized I needed an alien the paper bags seemed perfect (to learn more about this sort of paper bag hat, check out this post about something that’s happening out in San Diego… not the same thing I saw, but similar).
This was a super fun and easy project! I’m sure it could be adapted to make other hats/heads. I’m totally going to use this sort of hat again in the future!
