Make a Silly Hat for Your Next Zoom Meeting

Apparently, silly hats are a thing now on Zoom. Because people on video conference calls can be seen only from the shoulders up, the only way they can express themselves sartorially is with hats. But baseball caps, or even fedoras, aren’t enough to get attention on that video screen. Thus, the birth of the silly hat craze.

I’ve made a hat for this project with the word “Zoom” on it. I realize it’s kind of redundant, or even “meta” to make a Zoom hat for Zoom. To personalize your own silly hat, make one with fun shapes, animal ears or another word that suits you. You may like the hat so much, you won’t even wait until your next Zoom meeting to wear it.

What you’ll need:

Baseball cap or another type of hat
Cardstock, felt or craft foam sheet
Scissors
Pipe cleaners
Glue
Paper clips

 

1. Start with a hat you already wear. This way, you can build off of it rather than starting from scratch.

 

2. From a piece of cardstock, felt or craft foam, cut out a shape that is about 12 inches wide by 5 inches high. Like I said, I created the word “Zoom,” but the next one I make may be a pair of panda ears. Make sure there is a band at the bottom that is about one inch high — this band will be attached to the existing hat.

 

3. On the back side of the shape, glue on pipe cleaners and additional shapes like stars. The pipe cleaners add some jiggly fun to the hat.

 

4. Attach the band to both sides of the hat with two paper clips. If you have safety pins, you can use them. Now wear your hat proudly.
