DIY Paper Cup & Jute Hat Craft Tutorial For Kids
- Paper cup
- Jute thread
- Cotton Cloth (White)
- Thread (Red)
- White pearls
Step 1: Getting A Paper Cup
Take a paper cup and start cutting the sides into thin strips ending a little below the round base. You need to cut a total of twenty rectangular strips of equal width.
Step 2: Flattening The Strips
Stretch the strips out up to the end of the cut and flatten them on the table surface making the circular base in the middle with strips on its sides. Do this with all the strips as shown in the picture below.
Step 3: Applying Glue On The Jute Thread
Take the end of the jute thread and start applying liquid glue to it. Now, roll the jute thread to make a spiral shape.
Step 4: Making A Big Spiral
Keep rolling the thread to make the spiral bigger as shown in the picture below. The glue on the thread will seal the spiral shape completely. Keep in mind that the size of the thread spiral should be equal to the size of the circular base. Do not cut the jute thread off after making the spiral.
Step 5: Fitting The Spiral On The Base
Take this jute spiral and apply some glue on its back and fit it on the round base. Press it carefully to seal it on the circular base.
Step 6: Pasting The Jute Thread Outside The Base Circle
Take the jute thread connected to the spiral and start applying glue to it. Now, paste the thread on the round surface connected to the base of the paper cup. Start pasting the thread around this surface in a clockwise motion.
Step 7: Pasting The Thread On The Strips
Applying glue to more thread, paste the thread on the strips using a circular clockwise motion covering all the twenty strips including the spaces in between. See the picture above for reference.
Step 8: Covering The Entire Strips’ Surface
Keep similarly pasting the thread until you cover all the ends of the strips with the spaces in between as well as shown in the picture. Press the thread to stick it on the cup properly.
Step 9: Pasting A Cotton Cloth Strip
Take a white cotton cloth and cut out a strip with its width equal to the width of the vertical paper cup surface below the circular base. Paste the strip on the same surface as shown.
Step 10: Making The Bows
Take a thick nylon thread in red color and cut it into five equal pieces. Now, tie a bow knot with all these pieces and paste one of the bow’s on the bottom side of the hat rim as shown in the picture below. Take an artificial white pearl and paste it in the middle of the two loops.
